Pakistan Christian Serving Life Imprisonment For “Blasphemy”
ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN (Worthy News)-- A Christian man continued serving a life sentence Pakistan's Punjab province Tuesday, February 23, on what international rights activists said are "false allegations" of blasphemy.
A Pakistani court in the city of Faisalabad sentenced Imran Masih, 26, to life imprisonment and fined him 100,000 Pakistani Rupees (about $1200) on January 11, after his Muslim neighbor accused him of burning the Koran, seen a holy book by Muslims.
Masih has denied the charges saying he came across Arabic literature while cleaning his shop.
He said that before trashing it, he asked his Muslim neighbor whether the book was Islamic literature. After being assured that it was not an Islamic book, Masih apparently burned the book.
His neighbor however showed the half-burned book to passersby and accused Masih of desecrating the Koran, Christians said. Soon after, local mosques apparently incited Muslims to attack Masih by announcing that he had desecrated the Koran.
