Two points in this Hector Aleem update need to be brought to the front burner and reinforced.
- Sunni Tehreek forced to start the trial on 18th September 2010 because a large mob gathered in front of the court so the judge had to obey what they said.
- But the most interesting point I want to mention here is that when our lawyer asked the plaintiff (Muslim Cleric) that how do you get income? Because Sunni Tehreek is a religious organization and it can’t make much money; then the Plaintiff (Maulvi) replied that he got a sound system business which means that he sells DVDs and songs. And because of that the whole court laughed at the plaintiff.
mob ruleInstead of impartial justice, Pakistan has mob rule. The courts bend to the will of the mob. Since Christians are a minority, they can not obtain justice.
plaintiff sells musicThis point may go over many heads. The audience laughed when the plaintiff's source of income was exposed because the Taliban and their allies forbid many forms of entertainment. They burn down music shops and beat their owners, killing many. The revelation reduced the plaintiff's probity as a witness several notches.
Islam forbids musical instruments & entertainments because Moe hated anything and everything that distracted his army from preparing for war. He wanted them to spend time honing their archery skills, not singing & dancing.
The reputation of a witness is an important matter, as shown by this quote from Reliance of the Traveller. [Emphasis added.] Testimony is accepted from one who...

no absolute standards for it, but rather it varies

Mehwish Aleem September 20 at 2:53pm
The hearing was on 18th September 2010, as you all know that we have applied for the quashment (Cancellation) of the case in the High Court. But the opponents i.e. Sunni Tehreek (a terrorist organization) wanted to start the trial in the session court. Sunni Tehreek forced to start the trial on 18th September 2010 because a large mob gathered in front of the court so the judge had to obey what they said. The mob also chanted death slogans against daddy and Christianity, they had long beards and were shouting a lot and that’s how they were trying to confuse our lawyer but they failed. And thanks to your support and sister Elizabeth who donated 50 Pounds which I gave to the lawyer and made him ready to go to the hearing. Our lawyer went to the court and he argued plus questioned the plaintiff marvelously. Our lawyer raised some very good and legal points. He continued to argue for about two and a half hours. There were some very interesting points which went against the plaintiff but I won’t disclose any information now as the judge has not given any decision yet. But the most interesting point I want to mention here is that when our lawyer asked the plaintiff (Muslim Cleric) that how do you get income? Because Sunni Tehreek is a religious organization and it can’t make much money; then the Plaintiff (Maulvi) replied that he got a sound system business which means that he sells DVDs and songs. And because of that the whole court laughed at the plaintiff. I don’t know about the court but according to my observation, everything was on our side and I saw the plaintiff’s face which was really upset. Our lawyer was very happy but the procedure has not finished yet. I told you that this lawyer is very good for our case but he asks for a lot of money. So that is why you can donate any amount you can. You can even donate one Dollar because Penny Penny makes many many.
*****Target for the Donation*****
The target for donation is $5000 which is still a huge amount but I hope that all who can support us will support us financially and those who can’t donate can just pray for us. Prayers really help, so don’t forget to pray for daddy. And please also pray for our donation, this is the target so please keep the target in your prayers and pray that we achieve the target ASAP. Because I think that the case is at the end and Daddy (Hector Aleem) will be released very soon thanks to all of you.

And here is the picture I took; it’s a picture of a message by Sunni Tehreek which is written on a wall. The message translates “Non Muslims are still alive” and below that message they have written the name of their organization i.e. Sunni Tehreek and they have also given their phone number.
