BREAKING NEWS: Pakistan Muslim Employers Poison And Kill Christians Police Say
By Jawad Mazhar Special Correspondent BosNewsLife reporting from Pakistan
GUJRANWALA, PAKISTAN (BosNewsLife)-- A Christian sanitation worker was struggling for his life
Wednesday, December 16, in a hospital of Pakistan's Punjab province after two Christian
co-workers already died because Muslim employers apparently poisoned them, police and family
confirmed.
The father of the three workers, Yousaf Masih, said the incident happened Monday, December 14, in
a banquet and wedding hall where his sons demanded wages owed to them.
Masih said the Muslim managers of the facility were angry that Christians dared to ask for payment.
"My sons were apparently forced to consume some kind of poisoned drink, or a drug...They were left there
to die,” he said, adding that their bosses also made abusive remarks about Christianity.
Imran Masih, 29, and Irfan Masih, 25, died on the spot at the 'Ferozewala Pul Banquet & Marriage Hall'
while their brother 23-year-old Aakash Masih was eventually rushed to hospital by family members, Masih
said. “The administration of the banquet and wedding hall did not call a hospital or take them to a
hospital –instead they called us after the death of two of our loved ones.”
Aakash Masih was reportedly still in "critical condition" at the Intensive Care Unit of Civil
Hospital Gujranwala in Punjab Province. The human remains of the two other brothers were taken for
autopsy to the hospital, Masih said, as part of an apparent police investigation.
Police officials said they were still searching for the main suspects who they identified as Imtiyas Warriach,
owner of the Ferozewala Pul Banquet & Marriage Hall, and hall manager Abid Virk. Both officials will be
charged with "murder and deception, police said.
There have been several attacks against Christian sanitation workers across Pakistan a predominantly
Muslim nation. Minority Christians, who complain off discrimination, often work in difficult circumstances,
according to church groups and rights organizations.

  2. Heavenly Father, I lift up the Masih family to you, as well as others who are paying heavy prices for their faith in your son Jesus. I lift up the father of these 3 men, Yousaf Masif, and ask that you give him your perfect peace that surpasses all understanding. I pray for those responsible for the deaths of his 3 sons to be brought to justice. I pray that they would know that you are Lord, and that you will not be mocked. However, I do pray that all that oppose you and those that serve you would be given great opportunities to see the truth, and that they would repent from their sins and serve you with all of their hearts. I pray for protection of those who are already your children worldwide. May you be glorified, Heavenly Father. I ask all this in Jesus' name-AMEN.
