Falsely accused man set free after nine years in Pakistan prison on blasphemy charges

A man has been exonerated after serving nine years of a life sentence for blasphemy in Pakistan.

A two-judge panel on the Supreme Court ruled that Mohammad Mansha was falsely accused, citing lack of evidence.

The 58-year-old was arrested in 2008 after the imam of a mosque in the Bahawalnagar district in Punjab province told authorities he had desecrated a copy of the Quran.

Just wait… he’ll be lynched or worse by a Muslim mob.
