Nauman Masih, the 14-year-old Christian burnt alive

Nauman Masih, the 14-year-old Christian burnt alive

Following the mysterious death of Nauman — a 14-year-old Christian boy attacked and burned by Muslims for his faith — some in the Pakistani media have changed the narrative, suggesting he was attacked over a family feud, not religion.

However,  Christian lawyer Aneeqa Maria Anthony, coordinator of the NGO “The Voice Society,” says these are all lies: “Nauman gave his explanation of the fact [before he died]. His was attacked by two strangers when he said he was a Christian. The rest are rumors and false leads,” said the lawyer.

Nauman’s uncle, Nadeem Masih, filed report (FIR no. 308/15) at Gulshan-e-Ravi Police Station, in the presence of police, family members and political and religious leaders, when his nephew was still in hospital.  He wrote:

As stated by my nephew, today [Friday 10 April], when he was returning to the shop [where he worked] at about 12.30pm, two unidentified men on a motorbike came. They stopped my nephew and inquired about his faith, at which he told them that he was Christian. Then the two men doused him with petrol and set him on fire.

Moreover, the boy’s death is controversial:  ”We are shocked,” said Anthony.  ”The death of Nauman Masih, the 14-year-old Christian burnt alive by a group of Muslims, is surprising. Two days ago the doctors said that despite the severe burns, the boy would survive, because no internal organs were damaged…. We are waiting for the coroner’s report and the autopsy. His sudden death is not convincing. A thorough investigation is needed. Nauman said he was able to recognize his attackers, who now go unpunished.”

    How sad. The violence in the Islamic community against Christian has reached a fever pitch high. I think the West’s weak posture doesn’t help.
