A Christian family illegally confine of Muslim feudal and landlord

Bonded labour, also known as debt bondage, is probably one of the least known forms of slavery today but responsible for enslaving millions of people around the world.  A labourer becomes bonded when his or her labour is demanded in repayment for a loan. This advance is known as `peshgi’ in Pakistan. The person is then tricked or trapped into working for very little or no pay, often for seven days a week. The value of their work is invariably greater than the original sum borrowed. A child is considered bonded labour when he/she inherits debt; when the child is used as collateral for a loan; and when the child takes an advance on expected future wages.People are either born into bondage, sold into it by family members, or enter through loans they cannot repay.
LEAD is working for bonded laborers and legally try to make them release from imprisonment of landlord,brick kiln etc.
Mr.Safadar Masih told President/National Director LEAD that his son Mr.Shahzad Masih and his wife Mst.Uzma and two minors Children names Samra and Golo are under the custody of Mr.Muhammad Tariq Gujjar who has made imprisoned them and taking agricultural work from them the whole day under the supervision by one armed guard and they are not allowed and permitted to go anywhere.He also added that his son's Children also not allow to get admission in School for getting education. 

The writ petition has been filed in Lahore High Court for their release from Muslim landlord.
In addition, bonded labourers are routinely threatened and subjected to all kinds of physical abuse by employers. Threats and violence, both by the employer and the local police are used to coerce and discourage the bonded labourer from attempting legal redress or physical escape.

The Christian Family made released from the custody of Muslim landlord by High Court.
The writ petition filed in High Court Lahore No.1548.H-2012,the High Court passed order to release on dated 7 August 2012 all the detenues and set free them.The family was happy very happy after getting release and freedom from landlord.
