Beaten in Broad Daylight

“I was beaten and humiliated in broad daylight just because I belong to the Christian community,” said Elishba Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman.  She was talking of what happened to her on 16 November 2014 when she was beaten and had her clothes stripped from her by two Muslim brothers whose family employed her as a maid.  The attack followed an alleged argument between Elishba and the mother and sister of the men who attacked her.  Elishba, a 28 year old mother of four, was pregnant at the time and suffered a miscarriage after the attack.  Although Elishba was able to name her attackers, the Pakistani authorities have not filed charges against the two brothers.  Pray that Elishba will heal from her assault and that the two brothers will be brought to justice.
