The leaders of the All Christian Parties Conference have decided to take to the streets on Christmas Day to call on the government to repeal the blasphemy law. As the High Court in Lahore prepares to set the date for Asia Bibi’s appeal against her death sentence on blasphemy charges, the controversy over the law continues to fuel intense debate in the country. Islamic parties have already announced a nation-wide strike to protect the law, threatening strong-arm tactics if amendments proposed in a private member bill presented by Sherry Rehman are discussed.
By the way, I also want to remind all my readers about Asia News.it, one of the leading Catholic news websites as Catholic Culture.org. Both of them need money to continue their work. You can donate them as stated in their websites (here and here).
UPD: The marches have been postponed for fear of clashes.
