Christian girl kidnapped, raped in Pakistan
July 9, 2010
(christiansunite.com) - A 14-year-old Pakistani Christian girl from Mohalla Raja Sultan, Rawalpindi has been returned home after she was kidnapped and raped by five Muslim men. The girl, whose name has been withheld, had previously been threatened with death unless her father allowed Guddu, a Muslim man, to marry her.
The Muslims told her father, Lazarus, that they had "attended an Islamic religious convention, and the speaker said if you marry a non-Muslim or rape a non-Muslim girl, you will get 70 virgins in heaven." When Lazarus and his wife returned home from work on May 29, their daughter was nowhere to be found. They later learned that five Muslim men, including Guddu, were seen following their daughter earlier that morning.
The Muslims took the girl to a house near Islamabad where they drugged and raped her. On June 6, the police raided the home where she was being held; however, all the suspects were able to escape. At last report, the girl remained very frightened and was not speaking to anyone. (Source: Compass Direct)
Pray for God's comfort, peace and healing for this Christian girl. Pray for her parents and two sisters as they stand with her at this time. Pray that during these difficult days they will remain steadfast in the faith (1 Peter 5:8-10). Pray that the perpetrators will turn to Christ and seek forgiveness.
