In Past years , we proved to be best advocacy group to defend the victims of the Blasphemy laws Once again our legal team was successful in get the freedom of Usman Liaquat.

Usman Masih, was falsely accused for committing Blasphemy against the Prophet of Islam on 25th May 2016 in Punjab Pakistan. after 21 months of struggle we were able to set him free on 16th Feb,2018.

In Open Court ,Muhammad Moeen Khokhar, the Additional and session judge of Ferozewala, Punjab Pakistan, announced his acquittal from the jail.

In 2016, Liaqat , the father of Usman requested us for the help of his son. Our team investigated the whole issue, and we found that there was a gang of who took the pictures of the girls and women and posted them on the Facebook and black mail them. Prior to this Blasphemy accusation, Usman  had a fight with these men in which he got seriously injured and he submitted a Complaint against them in the same police station, but police did not act against them. Few of the persons involved in this racket were influential and rich and they wanted to fix Usman in such a case that he may end his life in the jail and Blasphemy law was the best case to fix Usman.

With the support of the police and some local influential people, this gang registered an FIR against Usman under the blasphemy law. They accused Usman for posting and sharing the Anti Islam material on the Social media whereas Usman used to work at the Honda Factory and he hardly had little time for the family. He never involved in any of such activities.

Police took his Cell phone and computer in the custody for the investigation and later SSP Investigation Mr. Najeeb Ullah Khan testified in the Court that he did not found any blasphemous material from Usman’s Cell Phone and Computer. He further told that the Forensic laboratory analyzed his computer as well as his Facebook account and found nothing sub verse against Islam.

Ehsan Asmat, the complainant was failed to provide any evidence against Usman Masih.

In last 8 years, Farrukh Saif and Team has proved to be one of the best advocacy group works practically on the ground despite the high risk of being killed for helping alleged blasphemy perpetrators. Life is vastly miserable and unpredictable for minorities in the Pakistan. However we will keep fighting for thousands of crying eyes and broken families who yearn for justice, respect, rights and dignity.
