Its time to fight back!
This is the true story of one mans continuing fight for a world free of religious persecution.
Majed El Shafie was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to die after he converted from Islam to Christianity. His dramatic story, and those of others worldwide who are suffering persecution, are told in shocking, yet sensitive detail. Especially startling is the true story of rescuing a very young Pakistani girl who experienced horrific sexual abusebecause her family would not convert to Islam.
Although hard to imagine and even harder to accept, this important truth about religious persecution is blatantly exposed. Millions of families are praying for help. They are suffering daily in China, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, and many other countriessolely because of their beliefs.
Freedom Fighter is Reverend El Shafies outreachit follows his heroic work over a four-year period as he traveled to Pakistan and Afghanistan to investigate claims of abuse, persecution, and slavery and to speak truth to governments that neglect and violate the human rights of their citizens.
This fight involves all believersplease help.
Majed El Shafie was born in Egypt to a prominent Muslim family of judges and lawyers. After his conversion to Christianity, he experienced torture and a death sentence, prompting him to establish One Free World International, a human rights organization committed to religious freedom. Reverend El Shafie lives in Canada and continually pressures governments and challenges spiritual leaders on behalf of persecuted people worldwide. Please visit www.onefreeworldinternational.org.
"Majed El Shafie is a rare human being. Having survived extreme persecution and torture for his faith in Jesus, he has devoted his life to rescuing others who are also being persecuted for their faith, often putting his own life on the line to do so. What could be more Jesus-like? I admire his courage and find it enticingly contagious!"
-- Sid Roth - Host, Its Supernatural! television program
"With his film, Freedom Fighter, and now its subsequent book, Majed El Shafie has done another service to the many families and people around the world who are viciously persecuted because of their religious faith." -The Honourable Jason Kenney Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism
