Pakistani Jew claims was ‘verbally, physically attacked’ by ‘Islamist’ in Karachi


Pakistani Jew, Fishel Benkhald‏, has claimed that he was “verbally and physically attacked” by a “Pakistani Islamist” outside a private bank because of his public demand for making religious pilgrimage visit to Jerusalem.

“The bank has the CCTV footage of the incident,” he claimed.

On his Twitter account, Benkhald wrote: “I’m verbally and physically attacked by a Pakistani Islamist because of my public demand for making religious pilgrimage visit Jerusalem, Israel. HBL Bank DHA Khayaban e Ittihad Karachi has CCTV video. What about my dignity?”

Further sharing details of the incident, Benkhald wrote: “Police was called by the bank and I was put in the police vehicle & taken to the police station at Nisar Shaheed Park DHA Karachi, the attacker later came in his own car and he is demanding the police to register an FIR against me and asking them to give copy of my CNIC & home address.”

Asking for the CCTV footage, he wrote: “Dear @HBLPak I have a question about the process of getting CCTV footage of yesterday’s attack on me by an extremist Jihadi at HBL Bank in Khayaban e Ittihad. Dear @ArifAlvi & @ImranIsmailPTI @PTI_KHI I’m a voter of NA-247 PS-111 you asked me for my vote now I’m asking for your help.”

Earlier on August 9, Benkhald appealed to the government allow him to visit Jerusalem in Israel on the Pakistani passport.
