    Lahore court sentences Christian man to death over texts   says news from Land of pure

    Quote
    A sessions court in Lahore on Tuesday sentenced a Christian man to death after convicting him of sending text messages containing “blasphemous content”.

    Asif Pervaiz, 37, has been in custody since 2013 fighting blasphemy charges that were levelled against him by the supervisor of the garment factory he once worked at. The supervisor had accused him of sending derogatory remarks about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to him in a text message.

    The court order issued by Additional Sessions Judge Mansoor Ahmad Qureshi, seen by Reuters, said Pervaiz would first serve a three-year prison term for “misusing” his phone to send the derogatory text message. Then “he shall be hanged by his neck till his death.” He was also fined Rs50,000, the order said.

    Pervaiz's lawyer Saiful Malook told AFP that Pervaiz has denied all charges against him and had merely forwarded the text messages in question.

    “This case should have been thrown out by the judge,” Malook said, adding he would appeal the verdict in the Lahore High Court.

    Quote
    “He has already spent seven years awaiting the court's decision. Who knows how many more years he will have to wait till this is over?”


    Pervaiz claims his supervisor, who had been trying to convert him to Islam, had accused him of blasphemy after he quit his factory job.

    Human rights groups say blasphemy laws are often misused to persecute minorities or even against Muslims to settle personal rivalries. Such accusations can end up in lynchings or street vigilantism.

    Up to 80 people are known to be imprisoned in the country on such charges — half of whom face life in prison or the death penalty — according to the US Commission on International Religious Freedom.

    In July, a US citizen of Pakistani origin on trial over blasphemy allegations in Peshawar was shot dead in a courtroom by a teenager who told bystanders he killed him for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.  Since his arrest, the alleged shooter has been glorified as a “holy warrior” by supporters and thousands of people have rallied to demand his release.

    that is the news...

    Another day.. Another Blasphemy case comes out in to the news... The News says

    Blasphemy suspect remanded in police custody

    Quote
    PESHAWAR: A local court on Tuesday remanded into police custody a suspect arrested a day earlier on charges of committing blasphemy through a video message on social media. The suspect, Bashir Mastan, was produced before a judicial magistrate amid tight security and was brought to the court in an armoured personnel carrier.

    The investigation officer said that he was arrested after his video went viral on social media which had resulted into public outcry. He requested the court for physical remand of the suspect so as to interrogate him further.

    The court remanded the suspect into three-day police custody with the direction to again produce him on Sept 11. The FIR of the occurrence was registered with the Inqilab police station in Peshawar on Sept 7 by SHO Tehseenullah.

    Quote
    In the FIR the SHO claimed that a video had gone viral wherein the suspect could be seen making false claim of his being a prophet. The police claimed that the suspect, who was a resident of Charsadda, was traced though his cellular phone connection and was taken into custody from residence of one of his relatives at Ghareebabad locality in Pandhu area. It was alleged that at the time of the arrest the suspect was also having a pistol.


    The FIR was registered under sections 295-C (derogatory remarks in respect of the Holy Prophet) and 298 (uttering words to wound religious feelings) of Pakistan Penal Code and section 15 of the Arms Act.

    well that is the news..
