Canadian bishops’ conference calls for release of imprisoned Pakistani girl
CWN - September 07, 2012
The chairman of the Human Rights Committee of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops is calling upon the Pakistani government to work for the “freedom, peace, and security” of Rimsha Masih, the mentally impaired Christian girl who has been jailed since August 16 on blasphemy charges.
“These measures would be a testimony to the encounter of our two religious traditions and their Holy Books in their appeal to God’s mercy,” said Bishop François Lapierre of Saint-Hyacinthe.
