Despite the high-profile case in Pakistan of a Christian mother who faced execution for blasphemy, things are only getting worse for Christian believers in the majority-Muslim country.
After sitting on death row for nine years awaiting her fate, Asia Bibi was allowed in May to flee her home country for Canada after Pakistan's supreme court annulled her sentence.
Yet there are dozens more blasphemy cases in the country.
According to International Christian Concern, false allegations against Christians are common to settle personal scores or incite religious hatred.
ICC spokesman William Stark says a report is coming soon from ICC that will alert the public about other Christians, also accused of blasphemy, who are mired in the country’s judicial system just as Bibi was.
“And see what they can do,” he says of fellow Christians, “in order to perhaps adopt one of these cases as a prayer point or speak out on behalf of one of these cases."
One current case is two teen friends, Sunny Mushtaq and Noman Asghar, who are accused of blasphemy for possessing sketches of Mohammad. Both are currently in jail for the alleged offense.
According to Stark, a Muslim sent the sketches to the teens via WhatsApp, a messaging app, but that teen is not being punished. In fact, he is the one accusing them of the blasphemous crime.
Stark calls that a perfect example of how Pakistan’s blasphemy laws are misused against Christians to punish them but adds that hopefully the teens’ case will get as much attention as Bibi.
