The birth of the Prisons Mission Society came about because Rev.Maurice shahbaz,Director of the Prisons Mission Society  was given a prison life sentence in July 1986, as the result of dispute between two families.He was 13 years old and was not involved, but was arrested with people who were fighting.He experienced many difficulties and extreme trials during 12 unjust years in prison.During these years,He also closely observed the pain of people suffering hopelessly in the prisons.  Sometimes, due to illness and many other reasons, they cannot see any light in their dark future.  Even very skilled inmates do not have much chance to improve their lives in any way, but he accepted the challenge and completed my education from Matriculation, F.A., B.A, Diploma in Advanced Studies in Urdu, Diploma in Advanced Studies in Punjabi, and M.A.

Being in prison, living among other prisoners of all ages,He provided an example that education can make even a prisoner acceptable in society once again.  After his release,he completed a Master of Divinity from Gujranwala Theological Seminary.

He know personally that criminals can be educated successfully.He  was put in prison when hardly 13, due to none of my own fault, but God made it possible for him to be released after 12 years.  At the time of his release, he decided to serve the suffering community that he  left behind in the prisons.His  aim is to love and serve all mankind.  In 1999, after my release, I founded the Prisons Mission Society.
