Liberty and Freedom
The story of Aftab, a Christian Pakistani teenage girl:
" Aftab tried to block the arc of battery acid, but it melted much of the right side of her face and left her with swirling, bone-deep burns on her chest and arms. She ran for the door, but a second man grabbed her hair, and they poured the acid down her throat, searing her esophagus."
"A woman heard her screams and threw her head cover on Aftab so she could touch her without getting burned. The woman took Aftab to her home and poured water on her. Others eventually came to help take her to the hospital.
"People in the neighborhood detained the two men who assaulted her until police arrived.
Why did you do that? the men were asked.
Notice the response of the community. This is not just a Muslim or two, but an entire community that sought to kill her and her family:
"They said Aftab insulted Islam, that she said Muslims are living in the darkness and are going to hell.
“They all turned against me,” she said. “Even the people who took me to the hospital. They told the doctor they were going to set the hospital on fire if they treated me.”….
"Aftab quickly learned that in her old neighborhood, she was a pariah. Her mutilated face was plastered on the news, associated with insulting Islam. Her family was persecuted, and their house was burned down."
This is Islam. In Pakistan, in Dearborn, wherever.
The Islamic Organization of North America (a mosque complex) is headquartered in Warren, Michigan, with primarily Pakistani membership. Muslims who have immigrated from Pakistan. They are no different than the Muslims who are still in Pakistan.
There are over a thousand members. And that is just one mosque.
