CBN News | 061518

The brutal rape of a child has resulted in rare justice for Christians in Pakistan.

The Muslim rapist of two-year old Saiba has been sentenced to 25 years in prison and fined the equivalent of $1300 for the crime he committed in December 2016.

“It’s a highly unusual case of justice for Christians,” said Wilson Chowdhry of the British Pakistani Christians Association (BPCA).

“Christians are a highly vulnerable and regularly persecuted body of people in Pakistan and justice is hard to come by as families are either forced to accept a bribe under duress in exchange for an acquittal of perpetrators, or face another family member being attacked or killed,” he said.

Apearing on the CBN News program The Global Lane, Chowdhry explained what happened to little Saiba when the Muslim friend of her brother was left alone with the toddler.

“The poor child was left alone with her older brother who was 10-years old because the mother and her eldest son had to go to work to feed the family,” said Chowdhry.
