Charity Commission Continues Investigating Allegations Against British Pakistani Christian Association After Director Wilson Chowdhry Resigns

The Charity Commission for England and Wales is continuing its investigation into a host of allegations against the British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA). The investigation began over a month after former BPCA Director Wilson Chowdhry resigned.

The commission confirmed with the Ilford Recorder that “it is investigating a charity which regularly worked in Redbridge” and that it is “aware of concerns relating to British Pakistani Christians Ltd.”

BPCA—an organization sometimes referred to as BACA (British Asian Christian Association) that operates out of Redbridge, England—is known for its work with helping persecuted Christians from Pakistan.

In June, former director Chowdhry resigned from the BPCA. He was officially removed as director from the U.K. Companies House in July.

Chowdhry is well-known for his involvement in Asia Bibi’s case in Pakistan. Bibi was imprisoned in June 2009 after being accused of blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammed. In May, Bibi was allowed safe passage out of Pakistan and granted asylum in Canada.

Chowdhry says he was in daily contact with Bibi’s husband earlier this year and that BPCA was “grateful … to have been able to be a part of this family’s journey to freedom and will continue to pray for them and assist them where we can.”

Chowdhry told the Ilford Recorder that he “stepped down due to personal reasons,” though two sources claim his departure came after an alleged moral failure.
