Sawan Masih bail petition filed!

Here is an update on Sawan Masih's Case provided by Mushtaq Gill of Lead (sic):

LAHORE:Today 10 April,2013,LEAD has filed bail petition for Sawan Masih and followed his case.

Lawyers for Sawan Masih, a Christian accused of blasphemy and jailed, are hopeful for his bail. He has a petition for bail scheduled to be heard on 15th April 2013, in the Session Court of Lahore.

An Additional District and Sessions Court last week on Tuesday 2 April,2013 handed over copies of case record to Sawan Masih, an accused of blasphemy Advocate Sardar Mushtaq Gill was present in the Court.The court had adjourned the proceedings till April 15 2013. Sawan is likely to be indicted on the next hearing. It is said the Joseph Colony arson had happened after the alleged blasphemy by Sawan Masih. The police had booked Sawan under 295 C PPC.

A 35-year-old Pakistani Christian street sweeper, Sawan Masih, who has been accused of blasphemy by a close friend, is now awaiting for justice in his bail petition.

Today 10 April,2013 Advocate Sardar Mushtaq Gill National Director of LEAD along with Sawan's family members visited Sawan in Camp jail Lahore and prayed with him.Sawan's mother,sisters and brothers wept bitterly when they met with Sawan Masih.They are very happy to see and visit Sawan Masih specailly his sister and mother.

According to the FIR story there is not any word by which the allegation under section 295 C PPC was made out, but after given of the second written application to SP Investigation City Devision by Complainant Shahid Imram mentioned that Swan said "Our Jesus will come back again and must come back,and He is the Son of God" and said SOME DEROGATORY WORDS about PROPHET OF ISLAM" which is after thought and consultation,which makes the story of the prosecution highly doubtful, said Gill.
