The fact that this happened at all is disgusting. Beasts. Beasts we’re funding with our tax dollars. While they do in the story, notice with the below link how VoA neglects to mention in their headline that the girl is a Christian. It’s the headline most people read as they scan the news.
Pakistani officials say a mentally-challenged Christian girl accused of blaspheming Islam has been released from jail.
Rimsha, believed to be 14 years old, spent the last three weeks in jail near the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, after neighbors accused her of burning pages from the Quran…Pakistan’s minister for national harmony told the French news agency (AFP) she was flown to a safe place where she was reunited with her family.
On Friday, Amnesty International said Rimsha is still in serious danger even after a judge ordered her freed.
The human rights group called the decision an encouraging step. But the group says the Pakistani government must urgently reform its blasphemy laws. It says current laws cannot be used to settle disputes or let private citizens take matters into their own hands.
Pathetically funny story point? A nation of cavemen has a Minister for National Harmony.
This is also excellent news. I’m wondering if the tyrants of the world are beginning to realize their friend Obama won’t be in office much longer.
Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who was originally sentenced to death in his native country for his Christian faith, was acquitted of apostasy charges and released from custody.
Nadarkhani, 32, was imprisoned for three years and waiting execution for refusing to renounce his Christian faith. His charges were lowered to evangelizing to Muslims, which carried a three-year sentence. He was released with time served, according to the American Center for Law and Justice, a Washington-based watchdog group that had been campaigning for the pastor’s release.
“Today our sources in Iran reported that Pastor Youcef was acquitted of apostasy and released from prison. After languishing in prison for almost three years, he has been reunited with his family,” Jordan Sekulow, executive director of ACLJ said in a statement to FoxNews.com.
