Pakistan: another Christian arrested on unsubstantiated 'blasphemy' charges
Catholic World News - August 13, 2012
Pakistan’s blasphemy laws have been exploited to bring highly questionable charges against another prominent Christian, the AsiaNews service reports.
Rev. Zafar Bhatti, who heads the Jesus World Mission, has been jailed after Muslims complained that he had insulted Islam in text messages. Christian leaders say that the charges reflect personal animosities against the Protestant minister.
