WASHINGTON, September 15, 2017 – In any school, a student should never have to fear that his religion will target him for violence or murderous rage. Yet according to Breitbart, an innocent Pakistani Christian was viciously beaten to death by Muslim classmates while his teacher calmly read a newspaper.
The reasons why are both morally appalling and tragic.
Sharoon Masih, who according to the British Pakistani Christian Association was an incredibly gifted and very intelligent student from a very poor Christian family in Pakistan had an intense thirst to learn. Yet, in this heavily Muslim nation, the teen was targeted by his Muslim classmates when they isolated him on the first day of school and warned,
“You’re a Christian, don’t dare sit with us if you want to live,” according to Christian Today.
In America, England, Australia and other Christian nations students and their families are all too often targeted by anti-Christian school administrators and higher up school district administrators, but rarely are these student’s lives put in mortal danger.
Unfortunately for Sharoon Masih, senseless attacks began to escalate with each passing school day.
They first began when students set upon him and attempted to forcefully convert him to Islam by slapping him and abusing him verbally. When he attempted to drink water from a water cooler, they constantly refused to allow him to have a simple drink of water.
Imagine the anguish, spiritual and psychological pain this child of God experienced as he attempted to merely go to school without threat or intimidation. His parents knew of the daily torture that their son was undergoing.
Sharoon’s mother Razia Bibi, commented,
“Sharoon and I cried every night as he described the daily torture he was subjected to. He only shared details about the violence he was facing [with me]. He did not want to upset his father because he had such a caring heart for others,” reported Breitbart.
This child of God was kind-hearted according to his mother and in his previous school his classmates and teachers admired the reportedly hard-working likable young boy. But, his Christian faith made him an open target by his Muslims classmates who were consumed by hate and the dictates of a religion that openly supports the marginalization and minimalization of Christianity.
The sick evilness, which liberals in America and their mainstream media handmaidens, romanticize Muslim fanatics as victims who merely want to practice their faith without intimidation. Yet it is that very murderous intimidation that, according to the Center for Studies on New Religions, 90,000 of the Christian faithful were killed for their beliefs in violent and gruesome attacks in 2016 alone.
That means that somewhere in the world, one Christian is killed every six minutes.
American Christian Civil Rights Movement Executive Director Judi Lake has called this attack and murder of an innocent Christian student in Pakistan a moral travesty.
“Every parent in any nation on Earth should never have to fear that their precious child should have to face vicious attacks and possibly death because of their Christianity. For a teacher to sit casually in a classroom, as he is reported to have done, while that child was being beaten to death is an abomination before God. Christians everywhere should not only mourn for the child but also pray for his parents, then rise and stand up for Christianity as God’s Biblical teachings guide us to do.”
Unfortunately, on Sharoon Masih’s fourth day in the new school, his short life was abruptly ended when he attempted to drink from the water cooler. The classmates beat the Christian student unmercifully to death, while his teacher Nazir Mol, averted his attention and continued to read his newspaper, according to Breitbart.
The teacher has since been dismissed but the hatred against Christians which the Muslims students practiced against Sharoon Masih will possibly continue in far too many forms. British Pakistani Christian Association chairman Wilson Chowdhry agrees and stated, “Christians are despised and detested in Pakistan. They are a constant target for persecution,” reported Breitbart.
