Pakistan: Christian sentenced to 25 years in prison for blasphemy released

This could be good news, if he is not harrassed from now on (or killed…)

Munir Masih, a Pakistani Christian sentenced to 25 years in prison for blasphemy, has been released on bail by order of the Lahore High Court, which is expected to overturn the verdict. Masih was accused by his neighbor of touching the Qur’an with dirty hands— a charge he denies. Masih’s wife, also sentenced to 25 years in prison, is expected to be released soon as well.

Let’s hope he is not killed after being released.
