Pakistan: Misuse of the blasphemy law

For many years, we have been hearing stories from Pakistan of Christians being falsely accused based on blasphemy laws in Pakistan. If you had a business conflict with someone and he happened to be Christian, just accuse him of blasphemy and you were guaranteed of his demise. If you don’t like your Christian neighbour, or if you are a zealot and just hate non-Muslims, make up a blasphemy charge and there you go. Several Christians have suffered under these laws.

It looks like the government starts to realise that now as well. Steps are being made to address the abuse of this law. Voice of the Martyrs reports on this at their website, read it here.
