I am asking the world to help save my daughters' lives.

My family is caught between two religions in Pakistan, a country known for religous persecution.

People here are hunted and killed by their own familes in the name of religion and family "honor."

This is my story: I was raised Christian but married a Muslim man. This has led to threats and attacks from both of our families.

My uncle and cousins, who claim to be Christians, injured me even before I was married. Because I would not break contact with my fiance, they beat me and even once poured a flammable liquid on me and set me on fire.

My father saved me from being severely burned, but it still took me two months to recover.

Since then, my father has died and can no longer protect me. I am married now, and my uncle and cousins are determined to kill me and my family.

Meanwhile, my husband's Muslim family did not know I was a Christian until my father's funeral. Now they are threatening to take my daughters from me unless I convert to Islam. If I go to the Pakistani government for help, they will also require me to convert.

My husband and I have fled to a province far from his family, but they are still trying to find us. We are not safe.

It might be hard to understand the role of family "honor" in a country like Pakistan. Many people go to any extreme in the name of family reputation. They will murder their own family members to preserve it.

I want my daughters to know a better world than this. They are six and eight — too young for this terror. I would die for their sake, but I want them to be safe and resettled in another country.

My dream is for them to live in a culture where all religions are respected, where they can decide for themselves what they believe.

Please help me find this life for my daughters. Please show your support by signing this petition.
