The 22-year-old son of a Muslim landlord allegedly raped a five-year-old daughter of a Christian tenant.
There is no substantial proof because of failure to obtain a medical report within 7 days, as the family of the assaulted child was reportedly harassed and threatened, and thus barred from reporting the incident. The 22-year-old Muslim has not been detained by police for any investigation.
The incident took place in Karachi’s Korangi Dhayee, in the jurisdiction of Zaman Town Police Station.The Pakistani government has been criticised by local Christian leaders and urged to enforce its law in an unbiased manner.

- Pray for justice for this girl and her family; pray that enough evidence would be found for an unbiased outcome.
- Pray the Lord will pour out His ministering Spirit on this young girl to bring physical and emotional healing. Pray her family will cling to the promises of God and take great comfort in His Word.
- Pray this outrageous crime and subsequent action may be used by the Lord to highlight the opposition and injustice faced by Christians in Pakistan; pray for change.
