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

Pakistani Christian family persecution in sri Lanka

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.,

In a desperate effort to save our life I cut my self very badly and put it on YouTube, no one helped.

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.

Naazneen Khan wants to save my life as well and her own

Guest Post, 
Written by Naazneen Khan
Dear all,

During last two days I received a large number of private messages suggesting me to be careful and not to put my own life in danger.  I am thankful to all of you worried for my safety.  Please be informed that I am very careful and have taken precautionary steps to continue my campaign to save Sadia as well as to keep myself safe.

I am in touch with Sadia on internet and Google video chats. In case Sri Lankan special forces arrest her she will be killed along with her family to avoid any trials. They would also ask her about my identity and location.
She doesn’t  know my location neither she knows me personally that’s what will keep me safe and sound.
Sadia has removed her website and sent it to me as well as to 2 other bloggers in the west.
In case we loose our contact with her and she stops coming on the video chats, I will put her website on the internet and let people know that this is the website which took 3 innocent lives. I hope this doesn’t happen and God finds a better way and things get settled without bringing bad name to Pakistan and Sri Lanka and a peace loving blogger is allowed to live.

With love,

UNHCR in Sri Lanka gives confidential information to the Defence Ministry?

originally posted by: eelamaran

UNHCR Diplomatic circles are currently discussing whether the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) office in Sri Lanka was providing information on foreign refugees to the Defence Ministry.

The reason is the directive issued by the Immigration and Emigration Department under the Defence Ministry that all 150 refugees from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan leave Sri Lanka within four days. What was most troubling was the fact their reference numbers at the UNHCR office had been included in the letters sent to these refugees by the Department. These numbers had been given to the Defence Ministry by the UNHCR office in Colombo.

These persons who have been asked leave the country live in difficult conditions at the Grand Mosque in Negombo.

According to the agreement between Sri Lanka and the UNHCR, the Sri Lankan government does not have the mandate to deport any refugee who is registered with the UNHCR.

Some of the persons if deported back to Iran would directly fall into the prisons maintained of Iranian President Ahamadinejad, who is a close friends of the Rajapaksas.

Also, their deportation would be in violation of the UN policies.

In the event the Rajapaksa government deports these people who are registered with the UNHCR, the matter is to be taken up at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva.

The local officer who is employed as the head of providing for the refugees earning a foreign wage is Rajapaksa loyalist and Reuter’s cameraman Waruna Karunathileka’s wife, Menik Amerasinghe. There are so far no records of action taken by her to safeguard the rights of these refugees.

Sarfaraz Shah

This boy Sarfaraz Shah was shot dead in  the posh area of Karachi in a park.The boy was dating a girl.A man complained about this to the rangers and later draged him to  them  who were already   waiting for him. After killing him the rangers rushed to the police station and filed as many crime reports against the teen as they pleased. In the video he clearly says that he is helpless because of his heart.
..  As a usuall statement of higher authorities led by isi was told that the boy was a criminal and he was wanted in 40 cases while the fact was that they could not produce a single first info report in any police station against him
His brother was a news reporter  while dying he kept on begging the beasts in uniform for his life and kept on saying that he should be taken to a hospital When he was pulled to the rangers he said he is helpless because of his heart meaning that he can not stop loving that girl.

Please be informed that Pak rangers are very use to of killing anti Taliban Pushtoon youth in war torn tribal areas of Pakistan.They kill them conveniently and name them Taliban. Since media is bared from those areas no body knows what is going on.
No body.....

Innocent unarmed youth attacked by rangers in Karachi

Sarfaraz Shah dead after bleeding and pleading for his life

Sarfaraz Shah would have been one of those thousands of young men who get killed by the terrorists in uniform and later on named either suicide bombers or criminal if this video was not shot by some camera man who was incidently there to shoot some tv programme.
When this video got on air Mr DG rangers came up with the statement
"That the involved rangers would be punished if convicted and the charges proved against them"
After many days Blind chief justice of Pakistan also realized that he should play some part so in a show of justice he took so called suo moto notice of this incident He made head lines in Pakistan when he issued orders of termination  of DG rangers from his post.....actually he only got transferred from Karachi after a couple of months he is back on the same post of Dg rangers and both of them sit shamelessly next to each other in news photos discussing Karachi deteriorating situation Mr Dg is very actively cleansing of Karachi of liberal people and helping terrorists in the name of carrying out oppressions against militants.And Mr Chief justice is there to help protect the terrorists.
 those rangers were trialled in Antiterrorism court confirming that Pakistani rangers and terrorists are one and the same
 As a rule of law they should have been  court-martialed .

Another funny thing about this trial was that police brought these rangers to the court with covered faces  wearing kameez shalwar and  bending down with covered faces they exactly looked like their brother terrorists actually police has been very  strictly advised by the ISI personnels that they should cover the faces of militants  so that they can not be recognized and they can carry on later....
