When a Christian student was accused of offending another religion, several of his classmates began beating him, ceasing only after he was lying dead in a pool of blood. However, the school was forced to hand over the teacher to the police when they heard what he was doing instead of intervening to save his pupil’s life.
While leftists demand that the Muslim minority in the West be given an elevated status and special protection from criticism, religious minorities in Islamic countries are persecuted and brutalized for even requesting basic minority rights. In over 50 Muslim nations, the so-called religion of peace and its Sharia law deny Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, and any other non-Muslims liberties, echoing a hostile period like that of pre-abolition. Although millions of religious and racial minorities remained literally enslaved to Muslim masters in Sharia nations, even the “free” dhimmis living under Islamic law find it nearly impossible to survive their daily routine as one unfortunate student discovered.
When Sharoon Masih enrolled at an esteemed high school in Punjab, Pakistan, he defied the odds by not only holding his head high amid a sea of Muslim peers but also attaining the highest scores of any student. Since a Christian student excelling in one of Pakistan’s government-run schools is virtually unheard of, Sharoon began to anger his Muslim classmates solely by being a Christian. However, once he drank from a “Muslim-only” water cooler, he apparently gave the Muslim supremacists all the reason they needed to execute him.
According to the British Pakistani Christian Association, Muslim students beat 17-year-old Sharoon to death in the middle of class for contaminating a Muslim water cooler by drinking from it. As Sharoon cried out for help with his last dying breaths, witnesses say that the head teacher ignored the grisly murder but is now claiming that he didn’t notice the deadly brawl was taking place just feet from him because he was busy “reading the newspaper.”
Breitbart reports that, initially, the teacher at MC Model Boys Government High School excused his refusal to intervene by alleging that the murder took place in between classes while no teacher was present. When his story was found to be false, he changed his alibi, claiming that he was too distracted by news reports to hear both the Muslim killers and Sharoon screaming.
Sharoon lasted only 4 days at the respected school where he was expected to graduate at the top of his class. Weeks after the horrific slaughter, the teacher was dismissed from his post, although there have been no reports suggesting that he is under investigation by authorities.
Despite Sharoon being “an incredibly bright student,” as described by his former Christian teachers, his Muslim classmates only saw him as the Quran teaches — a vile, evil unbeliever deserving of death. From day one, students admit that Sharoon was the victim of bigotry and persecution, with Muslim teens telling him, “You’re a Christian. Don’t dare sit with us if you want to live,” Christian Today reports.
Sharoon’s parents are Christian slaves who have been forced into hard labor by their Muslim debt-holders. In order to give their son a better life, 35-year-old Elyab Masih and his wife, Razia Bibi, saved every last cent they could to send Sharoon to the prestigious school. If they had not, Sharoon would already be working in the brick yards and kilns with his impoverished parents.
“My son was a kind-hearted, hard-working and affable boy, Razia said. “He has always been loved by teachers and pupils alike and shared great sorrow that he was being targeted by students at his new school because of his faith. Sharoon and I cried every night as he described the daily torture he was subjected to. He only shared details about the violence he was facing. He did not want to upset his father because he had such a caring heart for others. The evil boys that hated my child are now refusing to reveal who else was involved in his murder. Nevertheless one day God will have His judgment.”
When Sharoon refused to convert to Islam on his first day of school, students slapped him and labeled him a “filthy Christian” and “chura,” a derogatory anti-Christian term. Although they warned him not to drink from the public water cooler, Sharoon became thirsty, prompting him to take a drink. It was this simple act that led to his gruesome death.
Of course, the prohibition of non-Muslims drinking from the same water source as Muslims is a rampant issue in Pakistan and other Muslim-majority countries. For allegedly drinking from the same cup as Muslim women, Christian Pakistani Asia Bibi was sentenced to death in 2010 only to waste away for years on death row in a Pakistani prison once her story garnered an international outcry.
Bibi’s charges quickly upgraded to blasphemy after her Muslim accusers claimed she not only drank from the same bowl as them but insulted the prophet Muhammad, a crime for which the sentence is death, according to the Quran and hadith.
There will likely never be justice for those involved in Sharoon’s murder as nearly all hate crimes against Pakistan’s non-Muslim minorities go unpunished. Because the once Hindu nation has fallen to Muslim migration, birth, and conversion, the population implemented Quran-based Sharia law.
The Quran not only teaches that non-Muslims are “unclean” and “the vilest of creatures” but also that disbelieving and insulting Islam is worse than murder and, as such, deserving of death. With 1.6 billion Muslims adhering to a religion that teaches such a mentality, every non-Muslim in their wake is in danger of them carrying out their ideology’s violent and oppressive commands.
