ARRESTED FOR KILLING: Police Arrest Men Accused of Killing Christian Neighbor [#PakistanPersecution #ChristianPersecution] 09/18

Police in Pakistan have announced the arrest of 2 men, Salman Khan and Suleman Khan, in Peshawar in connection with the killing a Christian in June 2020.

According to statements from the victim, he was shot because he was the only Christian living in what his assailants claimed was a Muslim neighborhood.

In June 2020, Nadeem Joseph and his family were attacked by Muslim neighbors after moving into the TV Colony of Peshawar, the capital of the Khybar Pakhtunkhawa province in Pakistan.

Nadeem Joseph and his mother-in-law were shot by Salman Khan and his brother, Suleman Khan.

Salman Khan reportedly attacked Nadeem Joseph and his family because they purchased a house in what Salman Khan claimed was a Muslim neighborhood.

In a video message recorded from his hospital bed, Nadeem Joseph said, “A month ago, I purchased a house in TV Colony. I still have to make the final payments to the seller, but Salman Khan, a Muslim in the neighborhood, started harassing my family.”

Nadeem Joseph claimed Salman Khan asked his family to leave the neighborhood as it was “meant for Muslim residents only.” Khan when on to ask, “How dare a Christian family live amid Muslims?”

On June 30, 2020, Nadeem Joseph died in hospital as a result of the gunshot wounds he sustained.

Religious intolerance and discrimination in Pakistan is widespread.

Christians often face discrimination as a part of their daily lives.

This discrimination often dictates the jobs Christians hold, the education they receive, and even the neighborhoods in which they live.
