9-Year-Old Christian Student Accused of Blasphemy in Khanewal


Share post:

A 9 Year-old Christian Student accused of Blasphemy on 7th sept 2023 In Khanewal, a troubling incident unfolded at Government Railway School in Christianabadi, Landhi, Khanewal. A teacher falsely accused a Christian student of tearing a page from a book on Islam, even though later revelations showed that she herself had torn the page.

The Accusation

Accusing the young Christian student of blasphemy, an allegation that carries significant consequences in a country where religion holds a central place in society. The accusations, however, were false, and what followed was a disturbing sequence of events that has left Khanewal in turmoil. The incident occurring just before Friday, a day of communal prayer and congregation in the Islamic calendar, is causing tensions to rise, despite no FIR being registered.

The Severe Torture

Following the accusations, the student faced not only social stigma but also physical violence. He endured severe torture, a horrifying ordeal for any child. The incident has raised serious concerns about the safety and security of religious minorities in Pakistan.

High Tensions in Khanewal

Christian families fleeing the area, much like the situations in Jaranwala and Rawalpindi, underscores the pressing concerns surrounding their safety and well-being. Protests have erupted on the streets, with a number of Muslim clerics threatening Christians.

A Call for Tolerance

In the wake of this troubling incident, it is crucial to emphasize the importance of tolerance and understanding among people of different faiths. Pakistan is a diverse country with a rich tapestry of cultures, languages, and religions. It is essential that all citizens, regardless of their beliefs, coexist peacefully and respectfully.

Seeking Justice

The incident demands a thorough investigation by local authorities. The law must hold those responsible for making false accusations and inflicting harm on an innocent child accountable. Justice must prevail to restore faith in the country’s legal system.


The recent events in Khanewal, Landhi, starkly remind us of the challenges faced by religious minorities in Pakistan.This incident should serve as a catalyst for change—a change towards a society that values tolerance, compassion, and justice for all its citizens. This is a call to unite and work together actively to ensure that such incidents are never repeated, and that all individuals, regardless of their faith, can live without fear of false accusations or violence.
