Praise Report: Christian Girl Cleared of Blasphemy Islamabad, Pakistan
In August, a neighbor accused Rimsha Masih--a fourteen-year-old, mentally challenged girl--of burning pages of the Koran, the holy book of Muslims. Later, authorities arrested Rimsha on blasphemy charges which can carry the death penalty in Pakistan. After a three-week detention, she was released on bail and she and her family moved to an undisclosed location. On November 20, a Pakistani court cleared Rimsha of blasphemy charges.
Praise God for the release of Rimsha Masih. (The Bible, Exodus 15:2).
Praise God for authorities and courts that do not bend to pressure from fundamentalists and extremists. (The Bible, Deuteronomy 10:21).
Pray for continued protection of Christians in Pakistan. (The Bible, Psalm 27:1-3).
