Pakistan: 13-Year-Old Christian Girl Is Latest Victim of Forced Conversion and Marriage

The Corporate Media and the Left largely ignores persecution against Christians around the world because the two main culprits - Muslims & Communists - are "protected classes" within Leftist ideology, whereas Christians, at least of the traditional variety, are considered the bad guys for promoting traditional values. This is why I choose to highlight the truth about Christian persecution on this website. 

The following is an unedited press release from International Christian Concern (ICC). Please check out their website at www.persecution.org for more on the persecution and genocide of Christians around the world.

13-Year-Old Christian Girl Reported as Latest Victim of Forced Conversion in Pakistan

10/19/2020 Pakistan (International Christian Concern) – Last week, a 13-year-old Christian girl was abducted outside of her home in Karachi, Pakistan. Two days later, the girl’s parents were informed she had become the latest victim of forced conversion and forced marriage.

On October 13, Arzoo Masih was abducted by Ali Azhar, a local Muslim man, while she was playing outside of her home in Karachi’s St. Anthony’s Parish. Arzoo’s parents immediately filed a kidnapping complaint with local police.

Two days later, on October 15, police summoned Arzoo’s parents to the station where they presented the couple with marriage and conversion documents. These documents claimed Arzoo was 18 and that she had converted to Islam and married Azhar willingly.

Speaking to the Union of Catholic Asian News (UCAN), Shabbir Shafqat, President of the National Christian Party, condemned the abduction, forced conversion, and forced marriage of Arzoo.

“Forced conversion has become a major tool for the persecution of Christians and other minorities in Pakistan,” Shafqat told UCAN. “We must make a united stand against Arzoo’s abduction.”

According to a study by the Movement for Solidarity and Peace Pakistan, an estimated 1,000 Christian and Hindu women are abducted, forcefully married, and forcefully converted to Islam every year. Many of the victims are minors. Sexual assaults and fraudulent marriages are used by perpetrators to entrap victims and authorities are complicit.

The issue of religion is also often injected into cases of sexual assault to place victims from religious minority communities at a disadvantage. Playing upon religious biases, perpetrators know they can cover up and justify their crimes by introducing an element of religion.

Study Finds 353 U.S. Counties in 29 States with Voter Registration Exceeding 100%

10-18-2020 (Washington, DC) – A September 2020 study revealed that 353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens. In other words, the registration rates of those counties exceeded 100% of eligible voters. The study found eight states showing state-wide registration rates exceeding 100%: Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

The study collected the most recent registration data posted online by the states themselves. This data was then compared to the Census Bureau’s most recent information. 

The study, conducted by Judicial Watch, is necessarily limited to the 37 states that post regular updates to their registration data. Certain state voter registration lists may also be even larger than reported, because they may have excluded “inactive voters” from their data. Inactive voters, who may have moved elsewhere, are still registered voters and may show up and vote on election day and/or request mail-in ballots.

Judicial Watch relies on its voter registration studies to warn states that they are failing to comply with the requirements of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, which requires states to make reasonable efforts to clean their voter rolls. Judicial Watch can and has sued to enforce compliance with federal law.

Earlier this month, Judicial Watch sued Colorado over its failure to comply with the National Voter Registration Act. In Judicial Watch’s new study, 42 Colorado counties—or two thirds of the state’s counties—had registration rates exceeding 100%. Particular data from the state confirms this general picture.  

Earlier this year, Judicial Watch sued Pennsylvania and North Carolina for failing to make reasonable efforts to remove ineligible voters from their rolls as required by federal law. The lawsuits allege that the two states have nearly 2 million inactive names on their voter registration rolls. Judicial Watch also sued Illinois for refusing to disclose voter roll data in violation of Federal law.

“The new study shows 1.8 million excess, or ‘ghost’ voters in 353 counties across 29 states,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The data highlights the recklessness of mailing blindly ballots and ballot applications to voter registration lists. Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections.

In 2018, the Supreme Court upheld a voter-roll cleanup program that resulted from a Judicial Watch settlement of a federal lawsuit with Ohio. California settled a NVRA lawsuit with Judicial Watch and last year began the process of removing up to 1.6 million inactive names from Los Angeles County’s voter rolls. Kentucky also began a cleanup of hundreds of thousands of old registrations last year after it entered into a consent decree to end another Judicial Watch lawsuit.

In September 2020, Judicial Watch sued Illinois for refusing to disclose voter roll data in violation of Federal law.

Gab responds to censorship by social media

The Digital Civil War is Here, Which Side Are You On?

Today was the biggest day in Gab’s history. For over four years we have been warning about Big Tech’s unchecked control and abuse of power over the flow of information, news, and communication online.

We have been building a digital Noah’s Ark for this very moment. A place where free speech is preserved and the free flow of information is protected for all people. Gab’s traffic, new user growth, and site activity all reached record levels this week.

Today started with Youtube banning dozens of top Conservative channels.

Then Twitter continued banning people who posted the Hunter Biden story.

Then the Senate Judiciary Committee Announced That They Will Subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over NY Post Censorship.

Then Wikipedia Editors Censored the Hunter Biden Bombshell, and called the New York Post an ‘Unreliable’ Source.

Then Twitter Locked the Trump Campaign Account Less Than 3 Weeks Before Presidential Election.

Then Jim Jordan Posted the Hunter Biden-Burisma Story on a federal government website after Twitter Censors House Judiciary GOP, at which point the link was promptly censored by Twitter.

Then Twitter itself shut down completely.

All the while, Gab’s growth exploded.

Gab is the only place left on the internet that does not censor on behalf of the Google and Apple app stores to keep our app on their platforms. We do not answer to Apple. We do not answer to Google. We do not answer to Twitter. We do not answer to activist groups, big corporate sponsors, or the mainstream media.

We answer to you, The People.

On Gab you are not the product being sold. You are a valued member of our community and if you receive value from Gab and want to support our mission we hope that you’ll consider becoming one of our customers. Our highest honor is earning your business and support by providing a great service where information flows freely and people aren’t afraid to speak their minds.

Please keep our team and our community in your prayers. Make no mistake about it, the digital civil war has only just begun. It’s the oligarchs of Silicon Valley, the little tyrants who bend over backwards for their Communist Chinese Party masters, against We The People.

This is a spiritual war.

There is a very clear dichotomy between good and pure evil.

The line in the sand has been drawn.

What we need to remember is that we have God and Truth on our side.

United in faith, we can and will accomplish anything together.

The question is: which side are you on?

Egypt: Christians Targeted by Muslim Mob Following Wedding Attack

The following is an unedited press release from International Christian Concern (ICC). Please check out their website at www.persecution.org for more on the persecution and genocide of Christians around the world.


Christian Child Beaten, Adults Injured in Weekend Violence

10/08/2020 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that on October 5, 2020, a group of extremists attacked the homes of Coptic Christians in the Egyptian village of Dabous (Minya Governorate).

The mob attack was planned on Saturday evening, following an incident at a neighboring village’s wedding. Two young Muslim adults bullied and beat a 10-year-old Coptic Christian child. Some Christian adults subsequently confronted the two attackers. Mina, a 25-year-old resident of the village, explained to ICC, “The cause of the story was that two Muslim men who don’t belong to our village beat a young Coptic kid. The Coptic men didn’t accept that.” The confrontation became violent and resulted in the Muslim individuals receiving injuries.

On Monday morning, one of the Muslim individuals involved in this incident retaliated by beating a Coptic man and his son with a hose in Dabous, causing them to fall off their motorbike. Mina continued, “At the end of Monday, all of the Muslims gathered to beat the Copts. They damaged the windows and doors, and injured around five or six persons.”

Describing the incident, one Coptic man said, “The attack started with a Muslim woman screaming. The extremists attacked the Copts’ houses, [even though] there were security bodies whose job it is to protect the church. They did not call the police, but the Copts did. Then the police came, and the extremists escaped to the farms and grass.”

Pointing to some of the damage, Mina said, “This was a car damaged which belongs to a Coptic man. The Muslims suggested to make a reconciliation meeting and they will fix all the damages. Now my father has gone to the police station to follow the situation, but I will stay home. They are treacherous and traitors.”

The Deputy of the Salmalout Eparchy, the Priest Nashed Daoud, told Watani, “This was an unjustified attack. We are in contact with the investigation officers and prosecution. We want officers of wisdom to work in this case, so they don’t let any party raise violence here.”

Multiple injuries were reported from the incident. Reconciliation meetings are often used following mob attacks to prevent Coptic Christians from seeking justice through a formal legal system and frequently result in victim-blaming rather than accountability. The situation in Dabous remains tense, and the outcome uncertain. The village is located within an Egyptian governorate heavily populated by Christians, and community-based violence toward them by Islamic extremists is common.

Claire Evans, ICC’s Regional Manager for the Middle East, said, “We cannot forget that this incident started because Christian adults defended a young child from the violence of Muslim men. The subsequent mob attack against Christian homes sends the clear message that Christians should remain silent when witnessing abuse. Neither the targeting of a child, nor of a community, because of their shared identity should be accepted by the authorities. We urge local officials to hold those who planned and participated in the mob accountable, as well as those who facilitated the abuse of the child before Monday’s incident.”

Where are the Survivalist articles???

Hi Folks,

As most of you know by now, last year I started a new website, www.DystopianSurvival.com,  exclusively for my survival and preparedness articles. I also began the process of moving most of my old survivalist-type articles from this website to that one. This was a more arduous process than I anticipated, because each article had to be re-edited for formatting, to fix broken links, and even correct various typos and grammar mistakes. All while writing new articles! 

Dystopian Survival now has over 200 of my articles, with new articles being added everyday. I call the website Dystopian Survival because I go beyond the typical mix of wilderness survival, food storage, and homesteading advice found elsewhere, to create a new type of survivalism for modern times. For a full explanation of my concept, please read my article Defining Dystopian Survival on the Dystopian Survival website.  

Here is a brief index of my articles on Dystopian Survival:

Here are my basic recommendations for Preparedness

Legal Notice: The phrase Dystopian Survival is my trademark, and is owned by me, Timothy Lee Gamble, especially in relation to my website, my writings, and my concept of a modern survivalism as defined in my writings.

Pakistan: Updates on Recent Stories

 By Timothy Gamble

We have updates on two recent new stories out of Pakistan, and it is (possibly) good news. 

On October 2, I ran the story on the 22 year old Christian woman who escaped her abductor after three months in captivity. Her abductor had kidnapped her at gunpoint, and attempted to force her to convert to Islam and marry him. The identity of the abductor is known, as the kidnapping took place in public during daylight hours with many witnesses. It took repeated complaints by her parents, but a local court has finally issued an arrest warrant for her abductor. The arrest warrant has not yet been served. 

An estimated 1,000 Pakistani women and girls from religious minorities are abducted and forced into conversions and marriage each year. Pakistan's Islamic government and legal system often ignores, and at times even supports, this situation.

On September 8, I ran a story on a Christian man sentenced to death for alleged blasphemous text messages. His conviction has now been overturned by a higher court, citing a lack of evidence, and the court has ordered his release. This may end a seven-year legal ordeal, during which the defendant was in prison. It is possible that the prosecution could appeal this court's decision. 

According to International Christian Concern, 25 Christian are currently imprisoned on blasphemy charges in Pakistan. Blasphemy convictions in Pakistan carry a possible death penalty.

Pakistan: Forced Conversion and Marriage Survivor Escapes Kidnapper

I want to pass on a press release from International Christian Concern regarding another forced conversion and marriage in Pakistan. This story comes on the heals of another story in August, in which  a 14 year old Christian girl was abducted at gunpoint, forced to convert to Islam, and forced into a marriage to a Muslim man. She was initially rescued from her abductor, but a Pakistani court ruled the forced conversion and marriage is legal. She was ordered by the court to return to her abductor. In this newest incident, a 22 year old Christian woman managed to escape her abductor after 3 months of captivity, in which her abductor falsely claimed she had converted to Islam and married him. She had been publicly abducted at gunpoint.   

As you read this article, please be mindful that this is NOT some isolated case of some extremist living in a cave in the middle of nowhere. Rather, the Pakistani legal system, a branch of the Pakistani government, openly supports forced conversions, forced marriages, and even forced child marriages of religious minorities. This is mainstream Islam. In today's hyper-politically correct world, we are not supposed to acknowledge that fact. Instead, we are supposed to pretend this is just some isolated case of extremism. It is not. 

An estimated 1,000 Pakistani women and girls from religious minorities are abducted and forced into conversions and marriage each year. Pakistan's Islamic government and legal system supports this situation.  --Timothy Gamble

Forced Conversion Survivor in Pakistan Escapes Kidnapper and Reunites with Family

09/30/2020 Pakistan (International Christian Concern) – On September 8, Mehwish Hidayat, a 22-year-old Christian, was reunited with her family after spending three months in captivity. In June, Khurram Shehzad, a Muslim, abducted Hidayat while she traveled to her job at a garment factory in Lahore, Pakistan.

According to Hidayat, Shehzad and several other armed men abducted her while she was waiting for the bus on June 3.

“It was around 7:30 in the morning when I left for the garment factory,” Hidayat told International Christian Concern (ICC). “I was waiting for my bus along with six to eight girls. Suddenly, two armed men appeared from a white car. They showed their guns and warned everyone not to interfere.”

“The kidnappers then dragged me into the car,” Hidayat continued. “All the other girls started shouting, but none of them was in a position to save me as the kidnappers threatened them with their guns.”

For the next three months, Shehzad kept Hidayat in his custody. To justify this captivity, Shehzad fraudulently claimed that Hidayat had converted to Islam and married him.

“For three months Shehzad kept shifting from one city to another and sexually assaulted me,” Hidayat told ICC. “He often tortured me for refusing to sign the conversion and marriage certificate. He forced me to recite Islamic proclamations and verses. However, I remained committed to my Christian faith.”

In June, Hidayat was produced before a court to make a statement regarding the marriage and conversion. Under threat, Hidayat gave tainted testimony in support of Shehzad.

“My statement in the court was in favor of my kidnapper, however, I made that statement to save my family and protect myself,” Hidayat explained to ICC. “Shehzad threatened me and my family with death threats if I went against his will.”

After three months in Shehzad’s custody, Hidayat seized an opportunity to escape. She fled Shehzad and reunited with her family in Lahore.

“I escaped from Shehzad’s custody and rejoined my family,” Hidayat told ICC. “However, our lives will always be in danger. My family is continuously receiving threats from Shehzad.”

According to a study by the Movement for Solidarity and Peace Pakistan, an estimated 1,000 Christian and Hindu women are abducted, forcefully married, and forcefully converted to Islam every year. Sexual assaults and fraudulent marriages are used by perpetrators to entrap victims and authorities are often complicit.

The issue of religion is also often injected into cases of sexual assault to place victims from religious minority communities at a disadvantage. Playing upon religious biases, perpetrators know they can cover up and justify their crimes by introducing an element of religion.

China: Bookseller Sentenced to 7 Years in Prison For Selling Christian Materials

China's communist government is continuing its crackdown on Christianity and the Bible.  The following is an unedited press release from International Christian Concern (ICC) detailing the latest incident. . Please check out their website at www.persecution.org for more on the persecution and genocide of Christians around the world.

Chinese Christian Bookseller Sentenced to Seven Years in Prison

Online Bookstore Owner Charged with “Illegal Business Operations”

10/01/2020 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that a Chinese Christian online bookstore owner, Chen Yu, was charged with “illegal business operations” on September 27. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and fined 200,000 RMB ($29,450 USD).

According to a document from the People’s Court of Linhai City, shared by Father Francis Liu from the Chinese Christian Fellowship of Righteousness, in addition to the seven-year sentence and imposed fine, Chen will also have his iPhone confiscated. Additionally, the 12,864 Christian books from his bookstore will be destroyed by the Linhai City Public Security Bureau.

On September 1, 2019, Chen, who operated his online bookstore in Zhejiang province’s Taizhou city, was detained for selling unapproved religious publications imported from Taiwan, the US, and other countries. Consequently, the police launched a nationwide investigation to track down the bookstore’s customers through sale records and confiscated their purchased books.

On November 6, 2019, ICC also published the accounts of many Wheat Bookstore customers who were harassed by local authorities. According to China Aid, the Chinese government was utilizing this investigation opportunity to search for “illegal [religious] activities locally.”

A house church pastor from Shenzhen city in the southern province of Guangdong also told Bitter Winter, “People who buy Christian books are practicing believers, so the government looks into them to determine how dangerous they are to the stability of their regime.” He, too, was summoned for purchasing from Wheat Bookstore. “The Communist Party has done too many shameful deeds and continues to suppress people. Our government has a guilty conscience,” the pastor added.

Gina Goh, ICC’s Regional Manager for Southeast Asia, said, “The sentence for Mr. Chen Yu shows how the Chinese government is increasingly frightened by all things religious. From religious symbols, Chinese couplets, to Christian books, anything that features religious elements is no longer tolerated by the Chinese Communist Party. The disproportionate sentencing of Christians, such as Early Rain Covenant Church pastor Wang Yi and Chen Yu, under the same charge implies that the crackdown against Christianity will only intensify. The US government and international community should continue to stand up to the tyranny in Beijing.”
