Pakistani Christian Charged With ‘Blasphemy’ For Asking Muslim To Pay For His Repaired Bike


He was accused of insulting the prophet Muhammad for asking a Sadhu person to settle his bill.

A Pakistani Christian man has allegedly been charged with blasphemy for simply asking a Muslim man to pay for the repairs that he carried out on his bike.

Ishfaq Masih, a 23-year-old father of a 2-year-old baby, runs a bicycle repair shop in Lahore. He was accused of insulting the prophet Muhammad when asking for the guy to settle his bill.

“I am a Sadhu (Indian word meaning religious ascetic) person and you should have to give me free services,” the man said to get out of paying, according to Morning Star News.¬†However, Masih reportedly responded by saying: “I only believe in Jesus Christ not others, so please give me the payment since I repaired your bicycle.”

First Information Report against Ishfaq Masih.

“During the argument, Irfan said that he obeys only one master, Prophet Muhammad, to which Ishfaq said that he was a Christian and his faith ends at Christ,” Mahmood Masih explained. “Upon hearing this, Irfan raised a clamor that Ishfaq had blasphemed against Muhammad. Soon a mob gathered at the spot, and someone called the police, who took Ishfaq into custody.”
