British Pakistani Christian Association:

 

We, the undersigned, call upon the government of Pakistan to take action to promote justice and equal human rights for all irrespective of faith or any other diversity.

The Blasphemy Law of Pakistan (sections 298A and 295 B&C of the penal code) is being used to settle personal vendettas. We ask that the Blasphemy Law provide universal protection for all faiths, with better auditing of authorities involved with its practical application, or that the law be repealed in its current form.

On the 1st August 2009 in Gojra a mob of 3000 extremists destroyed 200 homes and 2 churches when they set the city ablaze after a purported Quran descration.  Police later confirmed the allegations had been based on false premise.  9 people lost their lives.  

On the 2nd July 2010 Sajid and Wajid Masih two pastors were arrested for writing blasphemous messages and were later acquitted of the false charges. They wer shot dead outside the Faisalabad High Court before they could enjoy their new found freedom.
