Pakistan, June 29, 2017: A Christian medical worker in Lahore was attacked with acid by a Muslim colleague earlier this year. Twenty-five-year-old Stella Masih, the only Christian member of staff at a medical clinic in Dunyapur, Lahore, had been repeatedly insulted and falsely accused by a Muslim colleague. Despite receiving abuse, she continued to work at the clinic, where she was highly regarded by the management, who supported her position. On 25 April, when Stella was staffing reception, her colleague came up behind her and threw acid on her lower abdomen. Stella lost consciousness and required medical treatment. Stella’s mother reported the attack to police the following day and, despite being threatened by the attacker’s family, Stella is refusing to drop her case. She is now receiving assistance with her medical bills and legal support from a Christian legal aid organisation supported by Barnabas Fund.
