CWN Editor's Note: A Pakistani Christian who was convicted in 2017 of blasphemy against Islam has been sentenced to death.

Ashfag Masih, a young husband and father, insists that he did not express contempt for the prophet Mohammed. He says that a false charge against him was brought by neighbors with whom he had a business dispute.

Pakistani Christians have frequently complained that the country’s blasphemy laws are abused by people who have grudges against members of the religious minority.
