A Protestant Pastor and other Christians accused of blasphemy in Crapistan

Lahore (Agenzia Fides) – Protestant Christian Pastor Aftab Gill and three other Christians from Gujrat, in Punjab, Pakistan, have been accused of blasphemy. They are accused of having used the word “rasool” (apostle) during an event made public by their community, the “Biblical Church of God”. According to local Muslims the use of the word “rasool” is considered blasphemous because the term is used as an attribute of the Prophet Muhammad. Unitan Gill, Pastor Aftab’s younger brother, was arrested but, as reported to Fides, the NGO CLAAS (Centre for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement) has managed to get bail.
