Bill proposed to change Pakistan’s strict blasphemy law

Pakistan’s draconian blasphemy law, which has seen Christians imprisoned awaiting execution, and innocent people murdered by vigilantes, may soon be tightened up to stop abuse.

A draft bill will shortly be put before the Pakistan government for approval. The proposed law will introduce severe penalties for people who make false accusations of blasphemy. It will also aim to stop vigilantes taking the law into their own hands.

  1. Finally a sensible thought has passed through the minds of these ignorant politicians. I hope this bill does get passed and is fully implemented afterwards. False accusations of blasphemy have ruined the lives of several innocents families.
