Good that they have their priorities straight. Jihad terrorists roam free with the blessing of the Pakistani government. Hafiz Saeed has a U.S. bounty on his head and his protected by the Pakistani government. Osama bin Laden was hidden for years by the Pakistani government. But a Christian accused of insulting Islam? Call out the special forces!
Pakistan is not a U.S. ally in any sense. The money train should be halted.
“Police in Pakistan search for Christian accused of insulting Islam in WhatsApp poem,” Associated Press, July 12, 2016:
Pakistan police say they are searching for a Christian man facing blasphemy charges after a Muslim friend accused him of insulting Islam with a poem.
Local police official Mohammad Asim said on Tuesday that the accused, Nadeem Masihm, is on the run….
Asim said police are also guarding a local church to avoid any violence.
Under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, anyone accused of insulting Islam can be sentenced to death. However, the laws are often misused to settle personal scores and target minorities.
In 2015, Muslims beat to death a Christian couple and burned their bodies in a brick kiln for allegedly desecrating the Koran.
