Pakistan: judge asks Christian accused of blasphemy to leave country
CWN - September 16, 2011
A Pakistani court has advised a Christian accused of blasphemy to leave the country.
The Fides news agency reports that an anonymous Christian teacher in a Punjabi public school was accused by Muslim students of blasphemy after he reprimanded one of them. Fearing for his life, the teacher sought redress in the courts, only to be asked to leave Pakistan.
