Pakistani lawyers have banded together to prevent the prosecution of one of their number accused of raping and murdering a 12-year-old girl, a Christian, going so far as to issue death threats to anyone participating in the case, and physically preventing access to the court.

The case in question concerns the murder of a 12-year-old girl who worked as a maid at the Lahore household of a family of a prominent lawyer. The girl was a member of Pakistan’s frequently persecuted Christian minority.

Police judged the girl to have been beaten to death, and a local hospital reported she had received a broken arm and jaw, and that she had suffered fatal wounds to her genitals.

The family claimed she died falling down the stairs, although doctors found her corpse was already days old when first reported.

After police took members of the alleged murderer’s family into custody, the city’s lawyers banded together under the auspices of the Lahore Bar Association in order to oppose the prosecution, which they claim is a media witchhunt. The head of the accused family is a former president of this body.

The city’s lawyers attempted to stop court proceedings by forming a mob outside the court and physically restraining anyone from entering, including the girl’s family and journalists.

So intimidating were their actions that no legal counsel has dared come forth to prosecute. One Christian group reports that the lawyers even threatened to “burn alive” anyone involved in the prosecution.

Police were said to be supportive of the lawyers, even as they abused journalists, human rights organisations, minority parties and bishops.

National politicians have condemned the murder and called for justice, though apparently stopping short of intervening.

    So the family tried to pass off fatal wounds to the genitals(among the others) by saying she got them falling down the stairs?

    Hang on.... Pakistan... was this the same country that recently got condemned for police shooting at peaceful protesters who were calling for a re-election?

    So they can SHOOT non-violent protesters... but they can't even reprimand violent riots?

    "The family claimed she died falling down the stairs..."

    That must be one badly-designed staircase.

    I wouldn't say all Muslims are pedophiles or extremists. Like any group of people, there are extreme points of view, and then you have the moderates (or fence-sitters, to put it politely).

    Like any person around the world, the vast majority just want to get through daily life without worrying about anything happening to themselves or their loved ones. It's just that when you get a group of moderates together being spurred on by an outspoken agitator, you get a mob. And the mob pretty much robs many of them of their rationality.

    'Fatal wounds to the genitalia'? Yeah, something fishy was going on at that house. Not sure if the lawyer was at fault, but sure as fuck someone beat and sexually-abused that poor girl to death.... and not the fucking stairs. >_<

    The prosecution doesn't seem to remember that death threats ARE criminal offenses.

    Death threats my ass, that's a criminal offense and I can sue all of you for that!

    No witnesses you say? We got FORENSIC EVIDENCE!"

    The corpse was days old with a broken jaw and arm, she also had fatal wounds in the genitals?

    All because of falling down the stairs...

    I wonder how long they took to come up with that excuse.

    No, no, no, you all don't understand! The lawyers are upset because:

    1. Under Islamic law no non-Islam can accuse an Islam of a crime!

    2. At least TWO Islamic witnesses to the crime against a non-Islam must testify!

    3. No witnesses have come forward saying they saw anyone rape and beat the girl to death, therefore no crime was committed, so the family's story that she fell down the stairs MUST be the truth!

    4. Therefore, this a witch-hunt to prosecute the former president of the lawyers association by falsely accusing him of raping and killing the girl.

    You see, it's all real simple.

    This is why Islam is a horrible religion that denies basic human rights to, and persecutes, anyone who isn't Islamic.

    This is about some Pakistanis.

    Islam hasn't even been mentioned. The fact the girl was a Christian is irrelevant - I bet the same would've happened if she was a Muslim, too.

    It's not like those other dodgy news posts about people claiming they can punish rape victims because of some blah blah Islamic law they read about, it's a bunch of Pakistani lawyers deciding to beat up and/or kill ANYONE who tries to go against them. They themselves said 'anyone', and that's exactly what they mean, Muslim or not.

    Seriously, some of these people kill their own family members over plots of land. My friend's uncle was shot in the head by his own brother over a plot of land barely larger than my garden!

    Someone should've taken advantage of the fact they were all together in one place and lobbed a petrol bomb at them or something. Would've taken out a good few. I imagine those suits would burn quite easily...

    This is interesting.... why would they band together to protect their FORMER president from being prosecuted? After all it's not he can really do anything for them. And don't give me that loyalty shit either - they're lawyers.

    Could it be that as their president he has blackmail material on all of them? Or could it be that some of them even participate in the raping of said maid?

    I think this bears an investigation.

    If those so-called lawyers know any better, stopping court proceedings by forming a mob outside the court and physically restraining anyone from entering, including the girl’s family and journalists IS THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE OF WHAT LAWYERS SHOULD BE DOING.

    And its ironic that they have banded under the Lahore Bar Association because this is the kind behaviour that should get them dissbarred.

    that's why Dog's are unclean in Islam. Dogs are to nice. Mohammed is recorded to have been a cat person this is why he blessed cats with 9 lives. I'm not joking I forget the name of his cat but he really loved that furball.

    Pretty easy to figure out WHY they are doing this;

    The lawyers are protecting their former boss thats all. Its like the 1960's Race Wars - Blacks vs Whites. But its just Islam vs Christians again - same SHIT for a thousand years. But christians dont rage and riot when the pope is made fun of but Towel Heads do riot when a drawing is made of some fictional man. FICTIONAL man. Theyre all Fictional.

    Can the media call what it is? A hate crime against a minority? In this its an entire political group of Islam Lawyers vs a Christian 12 year old girl's family.

    A Girl - STRIKE ONE
    A 12 year old - STRIKE TWO
    A CHRISTIAN - Strike Three

    3 strikes - Its fine to rape and kill her then. It is the way of our Heathen god Allah. He said it is okay.

    i think that all us anons should gang up on them and take them out. maybe hire some suicide bombers to take out the mob, or even go after the fucking asshole that did it. you know there are snipers that can pick off ppl from over a mile off, right? this really pisses me off, along with the fact that her family covered it up! "The family claimed she died falling down the stairs, although doctors found her corpse was already days old when first reported." i think that we just need to nuke those fuckers and be done with it. i don't see why we're wasting all this time trying to modernize them and trying to help them when all that does is to let them run rampant in our countries and do what ever they want to with blatant disregard for our laws and our citizens. this is bullshit and we need to put a stop to it!

    Sad part is that most lawyers i seen, (not all), are like this, these ones are just open to it. A lot people who know the loop holes in the law can do anything, and the other people who have the money can do all they want since they can pay ppl to do this. I would have made all cops and lawyers who had any take in this at all be arrested on the spot, and charged. That way, the entrance is freed and the case can continue.

    Also, isn't threatening to burn someone alive count as a death threat, meaning they can be charged?

    (not sure if all cops were part of this, but there must have been a way to punish all those doing this)
