There has not been an execution in Pakistan over blasphemy laws, but they continue to condemn those found guilty. In the most recent example, a Christian sanitation worker was found guilty of the crime based in large part on rumors and circumstantial evidence. This comes over a year after the same incident sparked riots and attacks against Christian towns in the Muslim nation.
The mess started when a friend of Sawan Masih claimed that he had insulted Muhammad, the prophet of Allah. That was enough to turn Joseph Colony into turmoil with 170 homes and two churches burned to the ground. Now, the accused is condemned.
