Additionally government is urged to nail such sorcerers who are misleadingly using the word “Masih” (Urdu word for Christ) with their names and subterfuge as Christians. Apprehensive Christians also pointed out to the fact that it has now become a common practice for such sorcerers to use word “Masih” with their names and advertise in newspapers; which is bringing defamation to Biblical teachings.

Sections of Christians are also calling that the government must issue directive to the newspapers not to advertise for such sorcerers who are offending Christians and Christianity. It was further declared that if newspapers and other publication who are publishing such advertisements do not cease from circulating offensive advertisements against Biblical teaching, Christians will be liable to take legal action against such newspapers and sorcerers.

Representatives of Christian community claim that sorcery, divination and all such practices are repeatedly prohibited in the Holy Bible, therefore, government must impose a ban on all such advertisements which are a vilifying Christianity at the same time sorcerers misusing Christianity for their vested interest should be hooked.
