Christian Pakistani Killed for Not Converting to Islam
A 22-year-old Christian man was murdered in Pakistan April 16 for not converting to Islam. Only known as Haroon, the United Kingdom-based Center for Legal Aid and Settlement claims he recently started work at an Islamic center in Lahore as a sweeper, where he was mocked for his Christian faith by a Muslim co-worker.
Umer Farooq, a security guard at the center, promised Haroon a life of luxury and marriage to a rich Muslim woman if he would embrace Islam. Witnesses claim Haroon did not care about such things and refused to convert to Islam stating he was a follower of Jesus Christ.
Allegedly Farooq became angered and opened fire on Haroon, killing him instantly with a single gunshot to the head. CLAAS reports Farooq claims Haroon had attempted suicide....
Haroon's martyrship has caused a message to be sent to the Muslims in Lahore. May God use this for His glory.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Matthew 5:
