December 16, 2010

Joined by other non-Muslim religious leaders, Pakistani bishops are urging Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani to prosecute the imam who offered to pay 500,000 rupees ($5,900) to anyone who kills Asia Bibi, the Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy. Several prominent Muslims, including members of parliament, joined with the bishops in signing the letter.
