Formerly Kidnapped Christian Teenager Goes Into Hiding for Safety (Pakistan, muslims)

A Pakistani Christian teenager kidnapped for more than two weeks in November has been forced into hiding to avoid recapture by Muslim extremists.

Leaders of a fanatic Islamic school have vowed to send Zeeshan Gill, who just turned 16 last week, to fight in Kashmir as a newly-converted Muslim jihadi (holy warrior).

Abducted November 7 on his way home from school in Sargodha, the boy was taken to the Jamia al Qasim al Aloom Islamic school.

Kept there under guard, Gill was forced to recite the Islamic creed, an act that makes one a Muslim under the tenets of Islam.

The boy was beaten by his captors, who declared that they would kill him if he tried to run away or convert back to Christianity.

In late November, four days before they planned to send him to Kashmir, the boy returned home to tell his mother what had happened.

Mrs. Gill fled the city with Zeeshan, who remains in hiding at press time.

According to Joseph Francis of the Lahore-based Center for Legal Aid and Assistance Settlement, the Gill family’s dilemma is not unusual among Pakistan’s tiny Christian minority.

Let's see if I understand. We are all supposed to be tolerant of mo-slimes. They, however, are not supposed to be tolerant of me or anyone else. And that's OK.

What an amazing bit of nonsense, eh?

Didn't some Pakistani pigs recently kidnap a Christian fourteen-year-old
girl, rape her, then tell her that she would have Muslim babies?

Islam is the religion of peace--NOT. This ain't cultural, folks, this allah-approved activity comes direct from the Koran and Hadith wherein Mohammad admonishes his followers to enslave and rape pagan women.

I foresee a time when we're gonna have to do that crazy, nutty eye-for-an-eye stuff with these animals.

I got one of my dogs at the pound and he behaves better than that race.

How do we know they were extremists? Do the extremists carry cards? Could it be they were just Muslims?

What do the remainder of their Muslim countrymen have to say about this instrument? Bet their silence is deafening.

And will this make national media? Probably not. Sad.

DISCLAIMER: I've had a sick kiddo and my TV has been unable to access FOX news for sever days. If it has made national news, kudos to whomever ran the story.
