Religious intolerance in Pakistan: 11-year-old pupil beaten unconscious by the teacher after admitting she is a Christian

A report from the Wiltshire-based group, The Barnabas Fund.

Here in the U.K., the teacher might reasonably be expected to be prosecuted for this vicious assault:


Christians in Pakistan have reported the ordeal of an 11-year-old Christian school girl in the town of Dharema, Punjab province, in October 2009. Nadia Iftikhar was beaten unconscious by the Muslim teacher at her evening coaching school “Bright Future Academy” after she said she was both a Pakistani and a Christian.

Nadia explained the circumstances:

“Our teacher was teaching us about the culture of Pakistan and Pakistani people and quoted a sentence from a text book saying ‘We are Pakistani and all of us are Muslims’. At this point I interrupted and said, ‘Madam, I am also a Pakistani, but not a Muslim. Instead I am a Christian.’”

Reportedly, the teacher was enraged and began hitting Nadia with a bamboo until, said classmates, the girl briefly lost consciousness. As she beat her young pupil, the teacher is reported to have kept saying that all Pakistanis are Muslims and “You are not a Pakistani but a Christian. Your homeland is somewhere in Europe or America.”

Nadia was taken home and later to the doctor. When interviewed by journalists on 11 October she was bed-ridden and her back was scarred. Nadia’s father, Iftikhar Masih, explained that he could not go to the police about the incident because “I am an impoverished Christian man and am busy working for a daily wage to feed my family.” Being poor and being a Christian are both serious disadvantages for anyone seeking justice from the Pakistani police.

Dr Patrick Sookhdeo, International Director of Barnabas Fund, comments: “Pakistan was created in 1947 as a homeland for South Asian Muslims, but from the very beginning it was recognised that non-Muslims were also part of Pakistan. Even the flag, with its narrow white stripe beside the main green background, depicts a non-Muslim minority alongside a Muslim majority. It is a perpetual struggle for Pakistani Christians to convince the rest of society that they love their homeland, Pakistan, just as much as Pakistani Muslims do. The myth that they are loyal to the West instead of to Pakistan must finally be laid to rest.”

"You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed; that has nothing to do with the business of the State".

It is a shame that while some members of the Pakistani community are ignorant of this that the journalists saw fit to name the child, her father, and her school.

and on day six God created the non-carbon triple duplicate complaint form.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
