Essa Nagri Christians pay jizya at gunpointMarch 28, 2012
Don’t believe the lies from the Muslim apologists who claim that the jizya hasn’t been imposed since the 1800s. The jizya humiliation tax is imposed today in locations from Egypt to the Philippines with government approval. From the British Pakistani Christian Association on Mar. 25:
Jizya Tax imposed on Christians in Essa Nagri, Karachi.
Essa Nagri is a densly populated Christian community in Karachi. The total population of Essa Nagri is said to be close to 50,000 men, women and children.
Christians living there suffer great poverty, however, they are strong believers and church attendance is very good. Essa nagri is served by over 15 established churches of varying denominations; Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Church of Pakistan, Philadelphia Pentecostal, Seventh Day Adventist, Salvation Army. In addition to this many other large and small Ministries are also working in Essa Nagri.
During the last six months, Essa Nagri people have been subjected to increasing attacks from local Islamic militants. The militants are entering Essa Nagri with guns, machine guns, pistols and other modern weapons. They enter the Christian colony and loot the community. Incidents include; snatching mobile phones, obtaining Jizya tax (Islamic religious tax for protection of minorities) under duress – often at gun point and violent attacks on innocent victims simply for fun. As they leave they celebrate their haul by firing their guns in the air and whooping! This is causing significant fear in the local community…
And those jizya payments are funneled right back into the grand jihad.
