42 Christians Accused Of Lynching Two Muslims In Pakistan ‘are Told They Will Be Acquitted If They Convert To Islam’
The 42 Christians who were accused of lynching two Muslims in Pakistan have reportedly been told they will be acquitted if they convert to Islam.
The group have been charged with murdering two men after suicide blasts targeted two churches in the heavily Christian area of Youhanabad, Lahore, in March 2015.
They were allegedly told their acquittal was ‘guaranteed’ if they renounced Christianity – despite one of the accused insisting he would rather be hanged that convert.
He said Deputy District Public Prosecutor Syed Anees Shah made the acquittal offer, The Express Tribune reported.
‘He asks them if they embrace Islam, he can guarantee them their acquittal in this case,’ Franci told the Pakistani newspaper.
Franci claimed the Christians were shocked – with one even saying he was ready to be hanged if he was forced to embrace Islam.
