ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Police in Islamabad have arrested three Muslims for pistol-whipping a Christian and his teenage nephews after they refused to convert to Islam, sources said.
The assailants in an Islamabad suburb allegedly have links to a banned Islamic extremist group. The primary suspect, Muhammad Nadeem, and others approached a 43-year-old Christian, low-level government worker Boota Masih, the night of Oct. 4 in the Khokhar Town area of suburban Islamabad, Masih said.
Nadeem said Christians had altered the Bible over the years and that Christianity was “a distortion of facts.”
“He then bluntly asked me to convert to Islam,” Masih said.
Masih said that when Nadeem refused to back down, a scuffle broke out between them. The assailants left him and his two young nephews lying on the road, bleeding profusely, he said.
