He further added that the Christian community along with the victim family protested against the police who did not register the case under section 354-A PPC and the police did not arrest any suspect.He also told that  the alleged suspects brothers attacked her because she had argued with their mother and sister.He added while they were beating her no body dare to rescue her because they threatened if anyone came forward to help and rescue her,the same would be happened with him.

The women of  religious minorities are easy target of violence in the form of physical torture particularly against Christians, in general, is increasing in Pakistan since after 9/11 incident. The issue of prejudice arises in a country where the Christians are a small minority in Pakistan; they represent only 1.6% of the 180 million Pakistanis 96% Muslims.
