A British man jailed for “posing as a Muslim”, has spoken for the first time since returning to the UK.
Masud Ahmad, 73, was arrested in Pakistan in November under blasphemy laws but fled while on bail.
The 73-year-old is part of the minority Ahmadiyya sect, who are considered heretics in Pakistan.
They were declared non-Muslim in 1974 by the Pakistan government because of their belief in a subservient prophet after Muhammad.
One of the restrictions on their religious freedom is that they cannot publicly recite the Koran.
