LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The attack took place in Christian Colony, Rana Town, in Sheikhupura district of Punjab province November 16. The victim, Elishba Bibi, was three-months pregnant. The accused, Muneeb and Mobeel Gondal, say they attacked her because she had argued with their mother and sister.

Bibi was allegedly beaten with a pipe, stripped and dragged into the street before falling unconscious. She was rescued after her Christian neighbors called police.

Christian activists in Pakistan have since called for the immediate arrest of the accused in the brutal assault of a pregnant Christian woman.


"The suspects also snatched my mobile phone, a gold necklace and 1,000 rupees (about $10 in U.S. dollars), that was my salary," she said.

Rights activist and Chairman of Human Liberation Commission of Pakistan Aslam Pervaiz Sahotra denounced the attack, saying it was motivated because of Bibi's religious beliefs.

Sahotra also criticized the police for failing to arrest the suspects after almost two weeks, accusing them of conducting a half-hearted investigation with the intention of exonerating the suspects.

Christian activists protested outside the Lahore Press Club last week to demanded swift and strong action against the suspects and the investigators.

Bibi has been quoted as saying that the Muslim family often tried to persuade her to convert to Islam. Christians who filed charges against the brothers have reportedly been threatened.

"We are now receiving reports that Christian families are being told to withdraw the case or face mob violence on false blasphemy charges," he told reporters.

The recent assault comes just a few weeks after a Christian couple was brutally beaten and burned to death by a 1,500-strong mob at a brick-making kiln after being accused of burning pages of the Qur'an.
