DEAD: Christian man who was shot by his Muslim neighbor for buying a house in a Muslim area has died [#PakistanPersecution #ChristianPersecution] 07/03
A Pakistani Christian man who was shot by his Muslim neighbor for buying a house in a Muslim area has died.
Nadeem Joseph was admitted to hospital after being attacked in Peshawar, but died on June 29, 2020, after multiple surgeries.
Nadeem Joseph and his mother-in-law Elizabeth Masih were set upon by Salman Khan and his sons a few days after Nadeem Joseph bought a house in Swati Phatak, TV Colony in Peshawar on June 4, 2020.
Despite several members of Salman Khan‘s family being arrested in connection with the incident, he still remains on the run, and the police are hunting him.
In a video message from Nadeem Joseph claimed Salman Khan had been harassing him since the day he moved to the colony.
According to Nadeem Joseph, Salman Khan repeatedly called them pejorative terms like “chooras”, and badly damaged the doors of their house, even asking them to leave the area.
Salman Khan claimed the neighborhood was for Muslims only, and a Christian family did not belong there.
Nasir Saeed, Director CLAAS-UK:
“Atrocities against Christians continue to rise in Pakistan, and law enforcement authorities hardly take any action while the government turns a blind eye to all these atrocities.
“It is unbelievable that in the 21st century, a Pakistani Christian family were shot for buying a house in a Muslim Area.
“It is true that there are several areas in the country where non-Muslims are not allowed to buy a house and in some areas non-Muslims are not even allowed to rent a house.
“Such hateful treatment towards non-Muslims in Pakistan is now an everyday matter.”
