Munir Asi Case
In Mian Channu six Muslim men (Ghulam Rasool, Muhammad Atif, Muhammad Amjad, Kashif and two men and still not identified) killed a 36 year old Christian man Rasheed Masih very brutally with axe. The reason for this brutal attack was Rasheed masih grew his potatoes business and succeeded beyond all those Muslim men. The rival merchants killed after luring him at farmhouse and left him roadside.
Rev. Iqbal Masih shared about the men Rasheed Masih and his younger brother that they were both devoted Christians and both refused to embrace Islam in spite of pressure of Muslim people. His younger brother Muneer Aasi is representative of Mian channu council. According to Asi some men called his elder brother on their farmhouse to buy potatoes at approximately 5:30 pm and those Muslim men were waiting for him with axe, rods and clubs and they brutally attacked him continuously with their deadly weapons. Aasi and two Christian friends went to see Rasheed Masih when he did not come back to home after several hours. Those men saw Aasi and his friends and immediately left Rasheed and rushed. According to medical, Rasheed Masih received 24 wound which were enough to kill him. Aasi appealed for assistance from Christian rights groups and politicians and still his family is receiving threats and he said that he is powerless against Accuses.
