Secret plea from victim of blasphemy laws
The family of this Pakistani Christian rights activist secretly videoed his plea for help, under the noses of the prison guards. The interview is from about 0:55 on, and shows the desperate situation and how effective false accusations of blasphemy, particularly against bread-winners. In addition it tells of the mistreatment (denial of medication, discrimination and torture) he suffers in prison.
In addition BPCA has seen plea's for prayer for the bail hearing of Mr.Khuram Masih, who has been falsely charged with blasphemy and held in prison for 9 months. His hearing is in Lahore High court on the 28th of August.
