(LAHORE) - After making a pledge to do all he can to help free Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman Advocate Sardar Mushtaq Gill, a Christian Human Rights Defender and Chief of LEAD (Legal Evangelical Association Development) was threatened to be pursued in Punjab Bar for the cancellation of his bar license.

On 26 March, 2014, there was a court hearing for Asia Bibi's appeal on her blasphemy conviction in the Division Bench Lahore High Court, Lahore. The date was postponed and set for 14 April, 2014. Gill was present at the court hearing along with his team.

"Today, 2 April 2014, one white collar unknown person came to Civil Court, Lahore and met me at our sitting place and he instructed me to be careful because there is apprehension that someone has a plan to wage an attack against me and it might involve some false criminal cases due to my human rights work," Gill said.

He further added that Rana Latif Anwar, advocate High Court, also instructed and advised him to be careful, otherwise he might be killed by someone and he was also told that he was on hit list from last year to till now. He was told that there were some black sheep who often did such things for their vested interests.

Gill says that it is written in Psalm 118:6-The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

and

Revelation 2:10-Don't be afraid of what you are going to suffer. Look! The devil is going to throw some of you into prison so that you may be tested. For ten days you will undergo suffering. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the victor's crown of life.

"I and my other staff members were threatened and attacked many times by some unknown persons due to our human rights work in Pakistan but we were not be afraid of such threats and attacks,we know that death is the result of the campaign which we have started against blasphemy law and in the support of persecuted Church," said Gill.

"Now we are between Judas Iscariot and Roman soldiers who are in plotting to hang us on cross," said Gill."Life and career both are at stake," added Gill.

Gill says, "we believe in this Gospel Verse 1 John 3:17 -But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?

"We have full belief in God Who saved Paul from Jews: Plot Uncovered; Paul Taken to Caesarea in the same way He must make stand someone for us to rescue us from the plots which are being made for us. As Paul's nephew did. Paul's nephew, a young man probably in his early twenties, heard of this plotted "ambush". He reports it to Paul, who then sends him with his message up the chain of command through a centurion to the commander.

"We are motivated by God, we have no fear of any loss even our lives but our voice for our brothers and sisters no one can make stopped to raise for them. We will not stop our human rights work because The Lord has commanded us to do this. We have heard His voice as Paul heard: Acts 23:11 The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.
