MPA wants Christian girl released, blasphemy law abolished

KARACHI: MPA Saleem Khursheed Khokhar, who represents the Christian community in the Sindh Assembly, has called for the immediate release of a Christian girl arrested recently near Islamabad. She was accused of desecrating the Quran and charged under the blasphemy law.

Speaking at a press conference at the Karachi Press Club on Friday, Mr Khokhar appealed to the government to abolish the blasphemy law, claiming that it was being misused to settle personal scores and victimise the minorities.

He said that the 11-year-old girl was also suffering from Down’s syndrome, adding that she had been framed in the case. Many Christian community leaders and members, who were present at the press club during the press conference, supported the MPA’s call to release the girl and abolish the blasphemy law.
