A Christian man reportedly had his arms cut off when he refused to convert to Islam after being kidnapped by Muslim extremists.

Petrol pump worker Aqeel Masih says he was taken from the LDA quarter of Lahore, Pakistan.

He claims his kidnappers whipped and tortured him, even though the the Quran states: ‘Let there be no compulsion in religion.’

When he refused to renounce Christ and accept Allah as his God, they cut of his arms in brutal punishment, he said.

A Christian organisation in Pakistan wrote: ‘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,’ wrote Legal Evangelical Association Development.

Masih has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the extremists and yesterday appeared at Ghalib Market police station.

But police do not believe his story and think it is more likely that he lost his arms in a train accident.

A senior police investigator yesterday told The Nation that three suspects are detained in connection with the incident.

But officer Ammara Athar said: ‘The circumstantial evidences do not support the claims of the victim. Apparently, it seemed that the man lost his arms in a train accident.’

Police sources told the outlet that Aqil Masih is a drug addict who got too close to an oncoming train after an overdose.
