Rescue The Persecuted - ECSPE

On June 17, 2012, in Lahore, Pakistan, we established ourselves as one of the top teams dedicated to safeguarding and defending persecuted Christians in the country. Our reputation was further solidified today as we successfully secured the release of a victim of the Blasphemy law from jail, highlighting the urgent need to address the misuse of blasphemy accusations.

On May 18, 2012, Shahzad Masih aka Sajid Masih was apprehended in Farooqabad, Sheikhpura district, facing charges under section 295/B of the Blasphemy laws. However, after 28 days, on June 16, 2012, we managed to secure the freedom of Sajid Masih from District Jail Sheikhpura. This accomplishment underscores the imperative to address the wrongful application of blasphemy laws and protect innocent individuals from unjust persecution.

This accomplishment seemed insurmountable, but our dedicated ground team invested all their efforts to make this remarkable event a reality. Sajid Masih’s father, Inayat Masih, and other family members expressed their joy and gratitude, acknowledging our efforts. Yet, we attribute this success to the grace of Jesus. While we, as humans, exert our efforts, miracles unfold only when He extends His grace.
