Pakistani court again delays ruling on girl's blasphemy charge
Catholic World News - October 17, 2012
A Pakistani court has postponed a ruling on the blasphemy charges against Rimsha Masih, the young girl who was accused of blasphemy.
The High Court in Islamabad announced that it would rule November 14 on a motion to dismiss the charges against the accused girl. The motion to dismiss the charges is supported by testimony from three people who say that the evidence against the girl was planted by a Muslim leader.
While Christians (aided by human-rights activists) have called for the immediate release of Rimsha Masih, Islamic militants have sought to postpone a judicial decision—to date, successfully.
