Pakistani Protestant denounced for blasphemy after citing Qur'an in sermon on violence
CWN - May 29, 2012
A Protestant minister in Pakistan is being denounced for blasphemy after he quoted from the Qur’an in a sermon on inter-religious violence.
Rev. Irfan Gill received death threats, and a local Islamic leader is pushing for prosecution of the minister on criminal blasphemy charges. A local Catholic priest suggests that the minister, who roused the indignation while preaching as a guest to a Christian community in the Punjab region, should return and apologize.
