King Abdullah keeps his daughters imprisoned for the last 13 years- Report by Daily mail

An ex wife of Saudi Arabia's billionaire king has appealed to Barack Obama for help freeing the four adult daughters she says have been held in a Saudi royal palace against their will for over a decade.
Alanoud AlFayez, 57, made her public plea to the president on Thursday, just a day before he is scheduled to visit King Abdullah for just the second time.
'Mr Obama should take this opportunity to address these grave violations committed against my daughters,' said AlFayez.




AlFayez, who has lived in London since Abdullah divorced her in 2003, said her ex-husband's treatment of their daughters has worsened lately after 13 years in confinement.
She told AFP that their already rare trips outside to buy food and medicine for themselves and their pets have now stopped.
'Since 13 years, my daughters Sahar, Maha, Hala and Jawaher are being held captive,'



AlFayez said. 'They need to be saved and released immediately.'
AlFayez has written to the UN's Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to say that her daughters are 'imprisoned, held against their will, cut off from the world'.
Sahar and Jawaher told the Sunday Times in an email that they were being kept alone in a house most of which is closed off as they have been left to fend for themselves with nobody to help them with the housework.
They did not reveal how they got access to internet.
'We have no passports or ID, we are under house arrest, with little food left for ourselves and pets,' Sahar, 42, wrote to AFP.
'On their orders, they have been literally starving us since last Wednesday. We are now living on one meal a day, leaving the little remaining meat for our pets and sipping little water in this heat, to save up. Our energy is quite low and we are trying our best to survive.' she wrote.

God gives a country when you are born, UNHCR gives another when you are torn


A Brave Young Pakistani Woman’s Struggle Against Oppression

Written by: Shawn Forbes

Today we celebrate the accomplishments and struggles of the brave women around the world who stand firm in the face of oppression and discrimination.  One such woman is Sadia Khan.  A young student and writer from Pakistan who dared to speak out against a prevalent fundamentalist ideology.  Sadia Khan’s struggle embodies the personal adversity Women everywhere are faced with every day.



Ten years ago in Quetta Pakistan, a young Pashtun girl named Sadia Khan was forced to flee her home alongside her young sister Amala ( an infant ) and their mother.  Sadia’s only crime was her objection to a radical and extremist society.  Sadia refused to be complacent in a world where women and minorities are deprived the very basic freedoms that every single living being is entitled to.  She publicly voiced her objections in her home, community and school.  Unfortunately, Sadia soon realized that her peers in the community were already steeped in a state endorsed culture of extremism.
In Pakistan, state polices encourage radical Islamic ideology while punishing moderate principles.  Thousands of activists and hundreds of journalists have been abducted and extra-judicially killed by State agencies and vicious death squads.  In 2010 Sadia began writing a book exposing these drastic human rights abuses.  She traveled extensively throughout Pakistan collecting reports, information, and testimony about ongoing state endorsed extremism.  
During this time Sadia‘s own family members tried to take her life, for her political, social, and religious opinions.  They also forced their mother to abandon her adopted daughter Amala. They had strong objection over her adoption. According to them she was a curse and was born without a marriage. They said according to their religious traditions, she should be killed for the sin of her unknown parents.
Sadia completed her book in 2011 but her work gained the attention of extremist elements in the region.  She soon found herself under constant suvaillance by ISI agents and extremist thugs.   In 2011 Sadia found herself the fortunate survivor of a vehicular attack.
Concerned citizens of her community came to inquire about her in a near-by shop.  Soon thereafter even these kind hearted citizens received threatening letters. Upon receiving the letter Sadia Khan, alongside her mother & her young sister Amala, fled their home and went to a servant’s house. They remained hiding there for 4 days and on 1st january 2012 left for Sri Lanka.
In Sri Lanka, Sadia was unable to publish her book so she started publishing articles from the book on a blog website. She knew it was very dangerous and will be awarded with death if exposed so she blogged with an anonymous name of Khizra Khan Yousafzai. 
Fearing for her life, Sadia and her family registered with UNHCR as asylum seekers. Over estimating the protection of UNHCR Sadia began blogging with her own name and exposed her real identity and location. Due to her outspoken stance against extremism and female oppression, expressed on her very popularblog and youtube channel, Pakistani ISI Agents quickly became aware of her location.  Within a week she and her family were apprehended and held in a detention camp for 1 month.  While in the detention camp, the authorities advised her:”Your case is between ISI and SIS.  ISI agents have contacted the head of SIS and now he himself is investigating about you.  You will be presented to the high court and deported to Pakistan.”
Sadia knew she would not be allowed to live after whatever has happened. After experiencing a minor heart attack, her mother was denied permission to visit her daughter in the hospital. Sadia was held under armed guard by Sri Lankan police officers.  A doctor told Sadia that they have been advised by Sri Lankan authorities to discharge her as soon as possible, alleging she was a dangerous spy.
When Sadia was still recovering, she was prematurely sent back to the detention camp.  Despite her inhuman treatment, Sadia remained vigiliant.  She continued to plead with the Sri Lankan UNHCR.  Sadia demonstrated her personal strength and resolve, refusing to give up on her family.  Trapped by 2 intelligence agencies, and detained by authorities for demanding her basic human rights and personal liberties.  On April 9th of 2013 Sadia and her family decided to flee from the detention camp.
After leaving the detention camp, Sadia, Amala, and their mother went into hiding.  Persued by International Intelligence Agencies and living in constant fear, Sadia bravely continued her online crusade for justice.
In October 2013 her mother who was exhausted with the life in hiding came forward to publicly beg UNHCR to grant them asylum.  Sadia and her little sis Amala left the safe house due to the fear of Sri Lankan authorities. Their mother eventually returned from the Sri Lankan UNHCR office in Colombo to an empty house empty handed.
For over 4 months Sadia and Amala had to live separately from their mother. They fear that their mother was under surveillance, they would all be abducted should they meet.  In November 2013 the Sri Lankan UNHCR finally announced their decision to approve Sadia’s asylum request, but a decision regarding her mother and young sister’s applications were still pending. Definitely UNHCR is under a lot of pressure from the state of Sri Lanka or else they would never take over 2 years to decide the fate of 3 women who face death at the hands of a strict Pashtun community and from 2 powerful state agencies.
Thanks to Sadia Khan’s tireless efforts, and personal resolve, the Sri Lankan UNHCR granted full asylum to Sadia Khan, Amala and their mother in February 2014.  The unsung heroes like Sadia Khan embody the female spirit.  Sadia’s brave struggle against overwhelming odds and hardships reflects the strength of the female spirit.  Her success is a victory for all women everywhere.  Sadia continues to work towards creating awareness of the oppression of Women in fundamentalist cultures.

A PEACE LOVING BLOGGER TERMED AS A TRAITOR





It was very disappointing when I spoke to The Head of Defense Sheharyar Parvez Butt in Pakistan High Commission to Sri Lanka. I asked him to help me as I am trapped by ISI in Sri Lanka by SIS. He started shouting and said,

“SHUT UP YOU ARE A TRAITOR.  I HAVE GIVEN SACRIFICES FOR MY COUNTRY. I HAVE HAD FOUR BULLETS IN MY BODY”



I Closed the phone but wondered at what he said. If he has had bullets he was doing his job for which he is heavily paid what about poor Pakistani people who are bombed every now and then. They collect and carry the scattered parts of their loved ones with pain without being paid.

Jesus and the sinners


As many of you know We are being persecuted for our faith in Christianity and for raising our voice against the cruel and those in power.

We were kept in detention and deprived of all we had including our passports. We have spent 1 long year on the run. Separated from our mother we continue to live in extreme fear.
We kept on begging UNHCR and the whole world to protect us as we are the victim of people in authority.
We wrote to many Christian organizations including Human rights no help was extended.

In a hyper desperate attempt to get help I cut myself in a live You tube video as a protest against our persecution…. 
I received loads of messages condemning me and calling me a sinner. “You are out from Christianity” many told me.
I wonder at the double standard of the West.
What about your teenage daughters?  Who leave the house to live with a boyfriend and get pregnant? Is it allowed to have children out of the bond of marriage in Christianity?

Our problem is we judge ourselves by our ideas and others by their deeds. Its so easy to have beautiful ideas but difficult to face life when it turns on you.
Let’s see What Bible says,

Matthew 7
7‘Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. 2For with the judgement you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3Why do you see the speck in your neighbour’s* eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? 4Or how can you say to your neighbour,* “Let me take the speck out of your eye”, while the log is in your own eye?5You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbour’s* eye.

Let me remind You how Lord Jesus even showed mercy to an adulteress woman who was chosen to be stunned by the people.

John 8:1-11
At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
11 “No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
Jesus who was never touched by the Satan sat with the sinners and dined with them.
 Matthew 9: 9 - 13; 
9 As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, "Follow Me." So he arose and followed Him. 10 Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, "Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" 12When Jesus heard that, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 "But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." 
That’s not all Jesus Christ was even kind and friendly to the prostitutes. He let them to touch his sacred body and showed kindness to them
According to the New Testament Bible, Jesus did talk to prostitutes. He had compassion on them because they were trapped in sin (in wrongdoing).. He loved all sinners, including prostitutes.
Luke 7:36-50.
36 Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. 37 And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesussat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, 38 and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.”
40 And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”
So he said, “Teacher, say it.”
41 “There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”
43 Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.”
And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.” 44 Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. 45 You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. 46 You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil.47 Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”
48 Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
Last but not the least if we don’t try to raise our voice against our powerful enemies one day we will be caught and then nobody would ever know how we were disgraced raped and cut in to pieces.
We must think twice before slandering someone, especially those who are being persecuted like us. We need your love and support not condemnations.
Happy New Year

Pakistan and Sri Lanka please stop our persecution



Pakistan High Commission in Sri Lanka plays double game





I am fateful Pakistani  Christian blogger who wrote about the atrocities of Pakistan Security forces fled to Sri Lanka where Pakistan Friendly Sri Lankan Govt took us to the jail confiscated our passports and all we had.
I kept crying for help all over the world but to no avail. I cut my self in a YouTube video to get help but to no avail.
I called Pakistan High Commission in Sri Lanka and asked them to ask their best friends to return our passports but Pak High Commission played suspicious making it clear to me that they want to help me verbally but trap me practically. All I asked High commission  to ask their Sri Lankan friends to return our passports is it too much to ask?
In protest I  cut myself so that we can be helped. It made a permanent hole in my heart.


 Here is my website because of which Pak ISI trapped me by Sri Lanka

Pakistani Christian family persecution in sri Lanka



http://www.christianpost.com/news/pakistani-christian-family-in-hiding-pleads-for-un-help-fears-for-lives-108210/

BY STOYAN ZAIMOV, CHRISTIAN POST REPORTER
November 6, 2013|8:16 pm

A Pakistani Christian family currently in hiding and living in poor condition in Sri Lanka are pleading with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to grant them refugee status, as they fear they might be killed if they are brought back to Pakistan.
"We need help," 29-year old Sadia Khan directly stated to The Christian Post in a phone interview on Tuesday. "We are now seven months in hiding."
Khan, along with her 11-year-old sister Amala, and their mother, converted to Christianity in Pakistan several years ago. She then began writing a book about terrorism, and according to investigative work she carried out, she found out that allegedly several Pakistani generals and security officials have been supportive of terrorist activities.
The Christian family fled to Sri Lanka in January 2012 after fearing their lives might be in danger, and Sadia was accused of being a spy for India by the Sri Lankan government, who reported her in every police station as a wanted high profile criminal. In Sri Lanka, however, they were held under detention for a month, and had their passports and other possessions confiscated.
In April, they left detention and have been in hiding in Sri Lanka ever since, afraid that they might face the death penalty if brought back to Pakistan.
"After seven months of exhausting hiding my mother left us and once again begged UNHCR to give us asylum," Khan explained to CP.
"She came back empty handed to the empty house which we had left due to the fear of being caught. Now separated from our mother we live in a different location and everyday fear death."

The family hope that UNHCR will finally take up their cause and help them find asylum, but so far they say they haven't received much hope that the international agency will take action.
"We are so helpless, I can't explain (how much.) Can you imagine, two governments are after us," Khan concluded.
The sisters have written about their ordeal on several blogs, hoping to raise awareness for their cause and get the U.N.'s attention.

Google + community with over 250 members has also been set up in their support under the title "Save the Life of Two Blogger Sisters."

"If we get arrested they will definitely kill us as they do not have any proof against us. They will not hold any trial against us, as UNHCR, human rights groups, including Amnesty International, know about these charges and will follow the trial. Sri Lankan authorities will secretly kill us as they cannot prove anything against us," Sadia Khan wrote in a letter addressed to Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief Of Army Staff Ashfaq Parvez Kayani.

Persecution watchdog group Open Doors ranked Pakistan at number 14 on their 2013 World Watch List of worst persecutors of Christians.

"Christians are caught between Islamic militant organizations, an Islamizing culture and a weak government with a military complicit in fuelling Islamic militants," Open Doors wrote about Pakistan, and brought up other cases of blasphemy that are often used to try and suppress religious freedom.

"Many persecuted Christians are uneducated manual workers who suffer unfair treatment from employers. Muslim men continue to sexually assault underage Christian girls. Opening a new church building is virtually impossible and emigration of Christians continues."

Brief story of Pakistani blogger trapped in Sri lanka by Pakistan



We converted to Christianity.

I was writing a book on terrorism, some people who came to know about this wanted to kill me. I fled to Sri Lanka along with my mother and my little sister on 1st January 2012.

We got registered with UNHCR.

I wrote about sensitive issues involving Pakistan security forces on my website with an anonymous name of Khizra and remained safe for 1 year.

Over estimating the protection of UNHCR in 2013 I started writing with my own name and disclosed everything about myself.

Pakistan ISI immediately contacted friendly Sri lankan Government to trap us.

They kept us in illegal detention for 1 month.

We came to know that SIS head and CID special team was investigating about us.
.
I was declared an Indian spy.

Our passports and everything we had was confiscated
We fled from the detention center and ever since live in hiding
UNHCR refused to give us asylum as Sr Lankan Government declared me a criminal.

We are enlisted in all the police Stations in Sri Lanka as wanted high profile criminals.

I wrote an open letter to President of Sri Lanka and the chief Justice of Sri Lanka to help me but to no avail.

After fleeing from the detention I contacted Pakistan High commission and ask them to help me.

They agreed with me that I was innocent and wanted to help me. They contacted the higher authorities in Pakistan who refused to forgive me.

After that Pakistan High Commission only tried to convince me to pay a visit to the Embassy they also tried to trace my location but due to the use of Blackberry could not trace me

We started a campaign on social media (google plus facebook) to save our life and have many supporters all over the world.

During this time we kept begging UNHCR to give us asylum but they refused due to the Sri Lankan Government involvement.

I wrote to Sri Lankan newspapers but they were too scared to publish my story.

I wrote an open letter in Pakistan daily times to General Kayani and PM Nawaz Sharif to help me but to no avail. It got published in September 30, 20 13 but was later removed from the internet.  http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2013%5C09%5C30%5Cstory_30-9-2013_pg7_10#.UlFxZfibtTg.blogger,

In a desperate effort to save our life I cut my self very badly and put it on YouTube, no one helped.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSUtMihkmP4&list=PLnAl-1oS_vdbzklheV7Vi1EdScK4gJi_x

My mother left from hiding and went to UNHCR to beg them once again to have mercy on us and save our life. We left the place due to the fear of authorities. that was the last time we saw her. 

Now We are extremely exhausted with 7 months of hiding and with the fruitless efforts to live....
Finally Our night mare came to an end, On November 27, 2013 UNHCR  gave me asylum. 3 months later my mother and my little sister also got refugee status.
We are still in Sri Lanka and want to move to our new country as soon as possible.

MY ORDEAL WITH PAKISTAN HIGH COMMISSION IN SRILANKA


I begged Pakistan High commission to help me but to no avail....




For 7 long months I kept begging Pakistan High Commission in Sri Lanka. My only demand from Pakistan High commission In Sri Lanka was to ask Friendly and brotherly Govt Of Sri Lanka to return our passports to us. 7 long months have passed, Pakistan failed to do so. 
This failure is by choice.
