Pakistan: Christian sentenced to death without hearing evidence

A judge in Pakistan’s anti-terrorism court heard no hard evidence, yet sentenced a Christian school principal to death under the charges of blasphemy.

It happened ten days ago. The death sentence was handed down despite the fact that the judge was not permitted to hear the recording of the alleged blasphemy – for that itself would have been the same capital offense of blasphemy.

    I believe that I read recently that the Christian population in Pakistan is actually growing – presumably because of a high birthrate (I imagine that any converts there would have a very short life expectancy indeed). Rather amazing, if true, considering the continual bigotry, hatred, discrimination and violence directed against them – and all non sunni muslims – in that cesspool of a nation.
