The Legal Evangelical Association, a Christian organisation in Pakistan, publicly detailed the horrific story: “The extremists exerted pressure on him to abandon Christianity and convert to Islam.. Aqeel however, did not give up on his Christian faith and refused to comply with their demand.. Notwithstanding…his rebuttal, they chopped off his both arms, and absconded”.
Aqeel Masih is to this date puzzled by what has happened to him as the Quran states: “Let there be no compulsion in religion”. The man declared he filed a lawsuit against the extremists that tortured him as he went into the Ghalib Market police station for further inquiries. Police forces currently do not believe the man’ story due to lack of more evidence to support it. They are considering the possibility that Aqeel might have lost his arms in a train accident.
