(DASKA SIALKOT, Pakistan) - Sara, a seven year old Christian girl, was reportedly gang raped by 4 Muslims in Mally ki Village of Daska Sialkot Pakistan. The minor was immediately transported to the DHQ (District Head Quarters) Hospital Sialkot in a critical condition. She is in the ICU in an unstable/critical condition.
The locals, with the help of the police, abducted the girl`s father, Iqbal Masih, to pressure the family not to file a case, and to come to an agreement with the culprits and to avoid a religious issue.
The Christian community tried to talk to the police, but the police seems helpless in recovering Masih from the local landlord. Despite several attempts, the police refused to comment/talk about the hideous incident.
The family contacted the human rights organization to step forward and take a stand in this matter. Life For All Pakistan has brought the matter in the notice of the district administration and filed a writ/appeal at the court seeking immediate action against the culprits and Iqbal Masih`s recovery.
As a result of the pressure, the police registered a FIR and arrested 2 rapists, but Masih still illegally remains in police custody. A protest has been scheduled at the Sialkot press club against the incident.
