LAHORE, Pakistan, May 14 (Compass Direct News) - A low-wage Pakistani Christian said his Muslim employer last week forced him to sell his kidney in an effort to pay off a loan his boss made at exorbitant interest rates charged only to non-Muslims.
John Gill, a molding machine operator at Shah Plastic Manufacturers in the Youhanabad area of Lahore, said he took a loan of 150,000 rupees (US$1,766) - at 400 percent interest - from employer Ghulam Mustafa in 2007 in order to send his 17-year-old daughter to college.

I doubt this too....mainly because Muslim posters on ATS have said a Muslim would under no circumstances have an organ from a non-muslim.
They would consider they were contaminated. Perhaps a muslim will come along and clear this up.
Rights groups, however, have complained that hundreds of rich foreigners come to Pakistan every year to buy kidneys from live, impoverished donors.
