Pakistani Prosecutors Offer To Let Christians Go If They Convert To Islam

In a shocking move, prosecutors in the case of the hanging of two Muslims have said that a number of Christians could go free if they declare to have converted to Islam, reports CBN. On March 15, 2015 some Christians pledged to get revenge on Muslims after suicide bombers attacked two churches in the Lahore neighborhood of Youhanabad. The dual blasts—on Easter Sunday—killed at least 15 people and injured more than 70.

Christians took to the streets demanding justice, riots ensued, and vigilantes reportedly lynched two Muslim men who they believed were involved in the attacks. Police went on a mass raid in the Youhanabad neighborhood and arrested 42 Christians accused of participated in the murders.

Now two years later, attorney Joseph Francis, Executive Director of the Center for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS) says Deputy District Public Prosecutor Syed Anees Shah has told his clients they would be freed of the charges if they renounce Christianity and become Muslims!

"He told them if they embrace Islam, he can guarantee them their acquittal in this case," said Joseph. When asked by a reporter to explain his unorthodox approach to justice, Shah denied he asked the Christians to embrace Islam, but he reportedly conceded offering "them a choice."
