(Evangelical Focus) — New reports highlight continuing concern over Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, six months after Asia Bibi was finally allowed to leave the country.
The reports come from sources as diverse as the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCRIF) and Humanists International. …
Release International says Zafar Bhatti was falsely accused of blasphemy to prevent his work as a Christian journalist and put his life in jeopardy.
He was arrested seven years ago after reporting on Christian persecution. Release Partner, Lahore Evangelical Ministries, says: “Somebody used his mobile to send a text against the prophet. This became a blasphemy case against him. Insulting Mohammed means anyone can kill him. His guard attempted to kill him and somebody gave him poison.”
