Pakistani court dismisses Rimsha Masih blasphemy case
Pakistan Rimsha Blasphemy Case Dropped
A court in Pakistan has dropped a controversial blasphemy case against a Christian girl accused by her neighbour of burning pages from the Koran.
The 14-year-old girl, known as Rimsha, was held in a maximum security jail in August, prompting global concern.
Her arrest followed accusations by a Muslim cleric who is now facing allegations that he planted evidence.
Rimsha’s lawyer said the case had been a misuse of law. Her family received death threats and went into hiding.
There are fears that even though the case has been dropped, Rimsha and her family will not be safe in Pakistan.
