Blasphemy Case Finally Dismissed

pakistan-map2ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN (Worthy News)– The Supreme Court of Pakistan dismissed an appeal against the decision of the Islamabad High Court to revoke the First Information Report formerly lodged against Rimsha Masih under Section 295 B and C of the Pakistani Penal Code, finally putting a legal end to her controversial blasphemy case.

During the hearing, Justices Tasaduq Hussain Gillani and Nasir ul Malik dismissed the application filed by Malik Ammad to reopen the blasphemy case against Masih.

Abdul Hameed Rana, Masih's counsel, said now that the High Court has declared that Masih — a 14-year-old Christian girl who suffers from Down Syndrome — is innocent, there's no longer a case pending against her.

Masih was first arrested in the Mehrabad colony of Islamabad after Ammad had lodged a complaint with the Ramna police accusing her of burning pages of the Quran. When word of this got out, Muslim mobs attacked her home and other Christian homes in Meherabad, so the Masih family was secretly moved to an undisclosed location in Pakistan.

Masih and her family were apparently granted asylum in Canada after local Canadian news recently spotted them and then broke the story.
