Last week while American Christians were heading to the polls to participate in the freedom that we enjoy here in the United States, two of our fellow Christian siblings were dying for their faith in Christ.
It seems that the story of Shahzad Masih and his wife Shama are very similar to the stories of other persecuted Christians in the Muslim world. He couple had run afoul of a local Muslim man to whom they owed money, and when this man saw his chance to for payback he took it.
Shahzad’s father recently died and so his wife collected some of his things and burned them before throwing the ashes in the garbage. Shahzad’s employer to whom they owed money charged that he had seen them burning the Koran and unless they paid him the money they owed - he would not let them go.
The news that a Koran had been desecrated (though seemingly false) traveled quickly to the local mosque and a mob soon arrived at the place where the couple ws being held. The mob forced their way into the room, violently beat the Masihs and then burned them alive in the furnace of a kiln.
The BBC was told by Pakistani security forces that they tried to save the couple “but they were outnumbered and attacked by the angry crowd.”
