This happened in Pakistan’s village called Bughyana in Kasur District. A Muslim landlord who is also a member of current government’s man Political Party killed a Christian man from that village because he was a Gospel Singer and that Muslim landlord didn’t like Gospel songs. He attacked his house, kidnapped him and tortured him in different ways including electrocution for days until he died. Now the government, Police or Courts of Pakistan are not doing anything because the man who died is a Christian and they just don’t care about a Christian. Pakistani Christians are facing genocide right now. Pakistani Government is actively involved in killing Christians everyday, they specifically target young Christian men. It seems like a crime to be a Christian in Pakistan. Please pray for this man’s family and share this video so more people can see the true face of Pakistan. You can’t find that kind of news on Mainstream Media which is why we need your help in spreading it. Pakistani Media always criticize India and other countries but at the same time they hide news in their own countries. This Christian woman who is speaking in the video has to hide her face because if she is recognized then Pakistani secret agencies will kidnap her and she will be disappeared forever.
When I finger point the reality of Islam, the race-baiters
Come out of the woodwork like cockroaches and scream, “ISLAMOPHOBE!” I’ll get over it but I expect the usual Social Media banning. In fact I would not be surprised if Youtube censors this 2 minute and 45 second video in one fashion or another.
If you think the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic is bad, try being a committed Christian in an Islamic dominated nation.
The Youtube description lacks details such as names and specific motives. I believe I have found more details from a Vatican News post from 3/5/20:
Pakistan’s religious leaders condemn brutal murder of young Christian
Pakistan’s Christian and Muslim leaders are calling for justice for the killers of Saleem and for stopping violence against Christians.
March 5, 2020 – 17:20
Outrage and condemnation are running high in Pakistan’s Christian communities following the brutal murder of a 22-year old young Christian in Kasur district, in Punjab Province.
Saleem Masih was attacked whilst taking a bath in a tube-well pool belonging to an influential local Muslim landlord. Accusing him of polluting the pool water, his killers tortured him brutally causing multiple fractures and internal and external injuries all over his body.
The murderers kept him for about three days before returning the body to his family. Taken to a hospital in Lahore Saleem succumbed to death on 28 February after three agonising days.
Several Christian and Muslim religious leaders met in Lahore on Wednesday to address the issue and plan their action, the Vatican’s Fides news agency reported.
At the meeting, chaired by Anglican Bishop Azad Marshal Raiwind of the Church of Pakistan, were present, among others, Father Francis Nadeem OFM Cap, Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Interreligious Dialogue and Ecumenism (NCIDE) of Pakistan’s Catholic Bishops’ Conference (PCBC), Pastor Emmanuel Khokhar and Islamic leader Muhammad Asim Makhdoom.
All present “expressed deep regret” over the episode, a sign of widespread intolerance towards Christians, and also over the inaction of the police to prevent the crime and releasing the perpetrators soon after.
“It is the state’s responsibility to provide security to all citizens of the country without any kind of discrimination. All citizens, of all religions, are equal, contribute to the development of their beloved nation and deserve equal rights,” Fr Nadeem told Fides. “We are a nation and live under a single Constitution and a single flag. The state must enforce these fundamental principles,” he added.
Bishop Azad Marshal declared he will file a “First Information Report against the criminals and will not step back until the perpetrators receive the appropriate punishment”.
The assembly of religious leaders expressed While expressing pain and bitterness at the persecution of Christians in Pakistan, the assembly of religious leaders also recalled the sufferings of Muslims in India, inviting both countries to avoid discriminatory laws and behaviour and respect the “principle of citizenship”.
The assembly decided to appeal to human rights organizations of the world “to take immediate action to stop violence against Muslims in India and against religious minorities in Pakistan”. It also planned to appeal to the government of Pakistan take practical measures to avoid this type of incident in the future and bring the perpetrators of Saleem Masih’s murder to justice and actively promote interreligious harmony in Pakistan.

The Christian Post (CP) provides even more details. Search engine examinations only points to Peace Worldwide on Youtube about the murder victim being a Gospel Singer. Either Peace Worldwide video dated 3/12/20 got the details wrong or yet another incident of persecuting Christians in Pakistan has taken place. Below are the CP details:
Pakistani Christian man tortured to death for bathing in well water; family wants justice
By Samuel Smith, CP Reporter
MARCH 04, 2020
A 22-year-old Christian man was beaten to death in Pakistan’s Punjab province by men who accused him of “contaminating” water in a well owned by a Muslim farmer.
Sources have told human rights organizations that Christian laborer Saleem Masih from the Kasur district of Punjab was chained, dragged, and beaten with rods by a landowner and four other men around Feb. 25.
Masih died from his injuries on Feb. 28 at Lahore General Hospital, according to the U.K.-based Centre for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement.
Masih’s older brother told the Union of Catholic Asia News that Masih was tortured for two hours for washing himself off in a tube well owned by a Muslim landowner who has been identified as Sher Doga.
“We have to take a bath after unloading husk from a trolley. Even the cold weather doesn’t matter. The itching from chaff, stuck in our clothes, disturbs our sleep,” Nadeem Masih was quoted as saying.
“They threatened him with dire consequences when he cleaned himself after unloading a vehicle last week. They accused him of desecrating their water. He was already being warned about making TikTok videos in farms belonging to Muslim landlords.”
Masih was discovered lying in Doga’s cattle farm with serious injuries on Feb. 25 in Bhagiana village, where many Christians work as farm laborers.
Nadeem Masih said local women informed him that they heard Masih moaning in pain around 7 a.m.
“He told the police about being chained, beaten and electrocuted by four men,” Nadeem Masih said. “They rolled a thick iron rod over his entire body. He was like a crushed sugar cane from a juice machine.”
Although Masih was taken to a hospital for surgery, he died from organ failure.
According to UCANews, Doga was arrested but later released. The high court in Lahore accepted a bail petition from the suspects who accused the Masih of stealing.
CLAAS Director Nasir Sayeed said in a press release that Doga summoned the police himself. Sayeed accused Doga of bribing police since police pressed Masih’s family to settle the matter.
According to Sayeed, Doga justified the crime by saying that Masih “committed a crime by dirtying” the well water.
“The Masih family had to plead with the landowner to free Saleem Masih so they could take him to a hospital for medical treatment,” Sayeed reported.
Ghafoor Masih told CLAAS that he wants justice for his son.
“Those who have killed my son must be punished for taking the law into their own hands and killing him for nothing but for being Christian,” Ghafoor Masih was quoted as saying.
According to Sayeed, it will not be easy to get justice for Masih because the “perpetrators are so influential.”
“The Pakistani police is often biased when it comes to the matter Muslims and non-Muslims,” Sayeed said.
Michelle Chaudhry, president of the Cecil and Iris Chaudhry Foundation, said in a statement that the “horrific act of violence is once again a grim reminder that intolerance in the name of religion in Pakistan has escalated beyond the rule of law.”
“Unfortunately, in Pakistan, when it comes to the religious minorities anyone is free to act as a prosecutor, judge and executor,” Chaudhry explained. “We cannot allow this to go on; impunity around violence against religious minorities in Pakistan has to end.”
Pakistan is ranked as the fifth-worst country in the world when it comes to Christian persecution, according to Open Doors USA’s 2020 World Watch List. Christians have often been victimized by societal persecution in the predominantly Muslim country.
In 2014, two Christians from Kasur were burned alive in a brick kiln by a Muslim mob after they were accused of desecrating a copy of the Quran.
“It is unacceptable that Christians in Pakistan still face discrimination and hatred on account of their religious identity,” CSW Executive Mervyn Thomas said in a statement.
“The government of Pakistan must take decisive action against the perpetrators of hate and those who carry out such crimes. We also urge the authorities to fully commit to the long-term work of overcoming the prejudiced mindset toward religious minorities in society.”
In a Feb. 26 tweet, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan warned that ” anyone in Pakistan targeting our non-Muslim citizens or their places of worship will be dealt with strictly.”
“Our minorities are equal citizens of this country,” Khan wrote.
According to UCA News, over 1,000 Christians attended Saleem Masih’s funeral held at an evangelical church in front of his home. Reportedly among those in attendance was Ejaz Alam, Punjab’s minister on human rights and minority affairs.
Masih’s killing has inspired the social media hashtag #JusticeForSaleemMasih.

BLOG EDITOR (In Fascistbook jail since 1/20/20): I’ve apparently been placed in restricted Facebook Jail! The restriction was relegated after criticizing Democrats for supporting abortion in one post and criticizing Virginia Dems for gun-grabbing legislation and levying protester restrictions. Rather than capitulate to Facebook censorship by abandoning the platform, I choose to post and share until the Leftist censors ban me completely. Conservatives are a huge portion of Facebook. If more or all Conservatives are banned, it will affect the Facebook advertising revenue paradigm. SO FIGHT CENSORSHIP BY SHARE – SHARE – SHARE!!! Facebook notified me in pop-up on 1/20/20: “You’re temporarily restricted from joining and posting to groups that you do not manage until April 18 at 7:04 PM.”
