Lahore: A Pakistani Christian man has alleged that both his hands were chopped off by some Muslim men for his refusal to convert to Islam, media reports said on Wednesday.

Police, however, have dismissed the victim’s allegation, claiming he lost his hands in a train accident.

Aqeel Masih, 25, complained to police, on Tuesday alleging that the unidentified Muslim men chopped his hands off with an axe for not converting to Islam on June 24, the Dawn reported.

“Some people came to me and asked me to convert to Islam.

On my refusal, they attacked me with an axe and cut my both hands off,” said Mr Masih, who was treated at Jinnah Hospital.

He said he did not know the name of the attackers and could only recognise them if he saw them.

Lahore police senior officer Amara Ather, however, said that according to a medical report submitted by a doctor, Mr Masih had lost his hands in a train accident near a beverage factory in Gulberg.

Quoting eyewitnesses, Ms Ather said Mr Masih was lying unconscious on the track near a railway track when a train engine crushed his hands up to the elbows.

“Some people rushed to the railway track after hearing his cries and shifted him to Jinnah Hospital,” she was quoted as saying by the daily.

She said some four to five people were present on the spot.

The police officer said evidence was being collected and a case would be registered against unidentified people after recording Mr Masih’s statement.

  • Under the doctrine of ‘EYE FOR AN EYE’ may be some western countries may consider and announce that they may will do the same against citizens of the countries which practice of ‘chopped off’ for refusal to convert to country’s main religion.
    Gandhi said that if both side do the same then the world will have only blind people but then to-day the
    WORLD IS BLIND TO THE CONDITION OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS INNOCENT MEN-WOMEN-CHILDREN WHO ARE VICTIMS OF THE GREED FOR POWER AND WEALTH AND LIVING LIVES WHICH MAY BE WORSE THAN THOSE WHEN SLAVERY WAS COMMON EXCEPT THEN THE SLAVERY WAS BY PHYSICAL FORCE AND TO-DAY BY ECONOMIC GREED.
