The West Sticks their Heads in the Sand as Muslims Persecute Christians

Egypt has been the recent paradigm of the persecutions of Christians by Muslims especially since the fall of Hosni Mubarak and the emerging power of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Coptic Christians of Egypt (10% of population – 8,200,000) are the largest grouping of Christians in a Muslim nation in which Islamic Supremacism dominates. There are pockets of Christians remarkably dwelling in other Muslim nations. The American ally (allegedly) Pakistan and partner in the GWOT (allegedly) also has a contingent of Christians in their population.


Figures cited in Wikipedia show there are a little less than 182 million Muslim in Pakistan. The same Wikipedia article shows 2,700,000 Christians reside in Pakistan. Pakistani Christians receive severe treatment under Sharia Law. Sharia is often used as an excuse for Muslims to exploit Christians in the case of property. Simply make up a blasphemy accusation of a Christian leader and your Church may be subject to confiscation and the leader on trial for his/her life.


Western media barely covers the horrific treatment of Christians in Egypt. Western media coverage of persecuted Christians in Pakistan is near zero. If it was not for a few bloggers people would not know there were Christians in Pakistan let alone persecuted Christians.


I have been following the plight of two Pakistani Christians both of whom have been charged with breaking blasphemy laws in Pakistan. I have not come upon any information as to their outlook in several months. I have to run across their status from organizations dedicated to exposing Muslim mistreatment of Christians or a few brave Pakistani Christians willing to risk detection by getting info out via the Internet. The two I am writing about are Hector Aleem and Asia Bibi. Both faced death sentences under Pakistani Blasphemy and both have receive some kind of legal reprieve the last I have read of them yet the last I heard they both were in a Pakistani jail or prison for whatever ludicrous Islamic Sharia Law ruling. (If anyone has heard anything about Hector and Asia let me know)


Join the Walid Shoebat Foundation in helping persecuted Christians in Pakistan and that Foundation be a whistleblower of the vicious tragedies perpetrated by Muslims upon Christians in Pakistan. Below is a little piece writing about Pakistan from the Foundation.

  1. Hi John,

    On their website, they have posted recent information, etc.
    I have been communicating with the Aleem family. As you know, Hector was originally charged with something like 17 charges (false) and the most serious one being Blasphemy. The Blasphemy charge was dropped. Thank God, all but 4 of the charges have been dismissed (I think due to lack of evidence). Of course, this has been a very, very, long process of waiting and waiting for Hector to be released. To my knowledge (as of this date, Nov. 29,), Hector is still in prison but is doing ok. The family wants to address the remaining charges, as soon as they can (pay their lawyer).
    I am not sure how Asia Bibi is doing. I receive a newsletter from The Voice of the Martyrs; I know they were helping her family (Lord bless them).
    Does this help? I have been praying for the persecuted. For any other questions, you are welcomed to e-mail me at

    Blessings, Sue


      1. your welcome John. At times it takes a while for me to reply to e-mail notifications too. In November (pretty sure) there was a pray for the persecuted day, encouraged by the Open Doors ministry (pretty sure) calling on U.S. churches to take this day aside and pray for the persecuted. I heard there was a good response. We can pray for the U.S. churches to continue, to wake up, see the need to reach out to, pray for and help the persecuted brothers and sisters. Fear is often a work of the enemy. Personally I think we get too comfortable with our lifestyles and want to pretend that all is well with the world when it is NOT. God bless you for your ministry…….
        Blessings, Sue


  2. Hi again John,

    You are so right about the West. Frankly, I feel sad that my fellow American Christians are not as passionate as it may please the Lord….concerning the plight of fellow Christians in other parts of the world. My opinion is, we are ALL part of the same body of Christ. Since we are, we should want to help each other out any way we can.

    Blessings, Sue
