‘Jailed Pakistan Christian ‘Tortured To Death’ For Refusing To Abandon Christ’

Pakistani Christians demand an investigation into the death of Indaryas Ghulam, a 38-year-old Christian man who they say was tortured and sentenced to death by hanging after refusing to abandon his faith in Jesus Christ.

Ghulam was among 42 Christians detained on charges of lynching two Muslims who allegedly participated in a Taliban group attack against two churches that left at least 19 people dead more than 70 wounded in Youhanabad, a poor Christian settlement adjacent to Lahore city, church sources said.

He denied lynching Muslims after the church attacks on March 15, 2015. The prosecution allegedly promised to release him in exchange for abandoning his faith in Jesus Christ, according to Christians familiar with the case. Christians said that he could have saved his life, but decided to bear witness to his Christian faith onto death.

Reaching Pakistani officials for comment was difficult.
