On 12 February,2013 four Muslims – Asghar Ali Rubani, Muhammad Shahzad, Muhammad Nadeem and Allachi; armed with deadly weapons entered his house and started to beat him and his wife and other family members.They also threatened to involve his whole family  in criminal cases, if he now would not give them more  money amounting to Rs.400,000  – approximately US$ 4000.

Riaz Masih went the next day to give a complaint in the police station at South Cantonment, Lahore, but police did not take any action against them even after accepting the complaint.

LEAD requests you to pray for such families who are being persecuted in different ways and by those from the majority community in Pakistan. We ask your prayers for the miserable condition of the victim family, that the Lord gives them endurance, determination and boldness to fight for justice. We also request your prayers for LEAD lawyers that the Lord gives them wisdom to deal such cases and the family gets justice and relief.
