Christian Sentenced to Death in Pakistan When Refusing to Convert to Islam

A Christian man has been sentenced to death in Pakistan for refusing to deny his faith on a text message – an act that is considered ‘blasphemous’ and punishable by death.

Asif Pervaiz, 37, has been in jail for the last seven years and today was found guilty of insulting Islam by text message in 2013. Asif denies any wrong doing.

The problem started when Asif’s Muslim boss tried to convert him to Islam. Speaking in his own defence, Asif claimed his boss grew agitated when he refused to convert to Islam and aggressively confronted him after he quit work at the hosiery factory. Asif said that his boss has also tried to convert other Christians as well, but the other factory workers refused to testify – which is understandable, given that they too might be sentenced to death alongside Asif.

BTJ is currently working in remote areas of Pakistan preaching the Gospel. They need your prayers. Evangelism in Pakistan is illegal and conversion is extremely dangerous.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
