Sharing losses in a partnership

Q: One Christian man invested in my business but unfortunately the business suffered a loss and I was in debt of 1 crore. This Christian man told me to give him interest every month and he put pressure on me and my family. What can I do according to shariah?

A: In a partnership, all the partners share in the loss and gain proportionately.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
