He was accused of blasphemy for faking the burned Qur’an pages that he used to accuse the Christian girl — falsely — of blasphemy. But in his own trial the prosecution case broke down as all, not some but all, of the witnesses withdrew their accusations. Could they have been pressured in some way? I know it is hard to believe that in the Pure Land itself, in an upright Islamic Republic like Pakistan, that an imam could flout justice, as people would not dare to draw the wrath of Allah by prosecuting him for doing nothing but persecute a filthy kaffir, but here it is.
“Pakistani imam acquitted of blasphemy,” from AGI, August 18 (thanks to C. Cantoni):
(AGI) Islamabad, Aug 18 – A Pakistani court acquitted the imam Hafiz Mohammed Khalid Chisti of blasphemy exactly one year after he falsely accused a Christian girl, Rimsha Masih of the same crime. Chisti had originally accused the girl of desecration, having burnt some pages of the Quran, a crime that is punishable by death in some countries. Chisti’s lawyer, Wajid Ali Gilani, explained that prosecution had failed to prove the charges while all the witnesses had withdrawn their accusations. . .
