Nazir Ahmed is purportedly forcing Bashira Bibi, to convert along with her entire family or else she would be fired and would have to leave the area. Seeing the situation worsening, Bashira Bibi started working at another landlord’s house, where she was warned that her daughter was now wife of a Muslim and has converted; which means Bashira Bibi and her entire family must convert.

Consequently, Bashira Bibi quit the newly found job as well. However, on September 22, she when she was hired for domestic work at a local wedding, her second employer was also invited. She was bashed by her ex-employer along with his brother as they humiliated the Christian woman harassing her for refusing to convert.

She was severely injured as a result of the bashing and was taken to a hospital where she was treated for her bruises.
