14-Year-Old Pakistani Christian Boy Dies 5 Days After Being Beaten and Set on Fire by 2 Muslim Men

Nouman Masih

Young Christian boy Nouman Masih who was burned alive by 2 unknown man on last Friday. He was 55% burned, today he passed away.

Another addition to the deadly atrocities Christians in Pakistan face. This one comes due to proclamation of faith in Jesus Christ. Nouman Masih, the 14 year old boy who was burnt alive because of his faith, died today in Lahore.

Nouman had suffered 55% burns after kerosene oil was thrown all over him and he was set alight by two men who inquired him of his religion. Nouman faced this attempt of hatred bravely was attempted to be rescued by two local men. This shows the hatred that is still breeding amongst our country men. Days after the public lynching Lahore Police raided every house of Youhanabad and rounded more than 400 Christian youth by breaking doors of Christian homes or climbing boundary walls in middle of night.

Unfortunately young Nouman could not survive his wounds and lost the battle of life today. Proclamation of his faith proved fatal for him. Local Christians say that they have been living under fear because of the hatred against them. Upon becoming stable, he had been question on the hospital bed by the police as a FIR was lodged.

Chief Minsiter Shahbaz Sharif had taken notice of this act of brutality and had commanded the immediate arrest of the two men involved in it. A special medical team had also been formed for the treatment of Nouman. Member Punjab assembly Shahzad Munshi reached the hospital upon news of Noumans death. Pastor Anwar Fazal has met the family and demanded that the culprits be immediately punished. The question that looms large over all of us is till when will this lawlessness prevail and till when will this fire keep on eating the innocent?

  1. Jesus said, “Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.” – Luke 9:23-24 (NKJV)

    I believe that God allows terrible things to happen to show us the terrible result of a sinful world, and as a witness for others. This young man risked death to proclaim his faith in Jesus Christ. While tragic from an Earthly perspective, we should focus on his strong faith, His witness will serve as an example that despite the horror of our world, some things are worth more than life itself. This young man took his stand with Jesus and the many Christian martyrs who died for their faith in Jesus Christ!

    May our faith be as strong as the faith of this young man!
