A Christian housemaid and her daughter spent months as captives of a Muslim homeowner who tortured them in attempts to make them renounce their Christian faith. Shahbaz Bhatti, chairman of the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance (APMA), reported on Thursday, Dec. 7, that 40-year old Nareen Pervaiz and her 13-year-old daughter, Razia, were â€œtortured and illegally detainedâ€ in the city of Sialkot in Pakistanâ€™s Punjab province. After her husbandâ€™s death, Pervaiz and her daughter began working as a maid to support the poor family. When homeowner Muhammad Ikram discovered the two were Christians, he and his wife physically tortured them and forcefully ripped cross necklaces from their necks. â€œBoth mother and daughter were asked to change their Christian faith and embrace Islam,â€ Bhatti explained. â€œOn refusal they were tortured and often brutally beaten. When they wanted to leave the job, they were forcibly detained in the basement of the house and fastened with chains at night so they should not flee away.â€ The familyâ€™s eldest daughter contacted the APMA after the two disappeared earlier this year. A Pakistani court approved a rescue plan on Wednesday, Nov. 29, and the two are now free. (BosNewsLife) Â Â Subscribe to the Vision News by EmailÂ
