BLOG | Rimsha’s Release: Christian Girl’s Freedom a Far Cry from Justice

Crouching in a corner of a dark cell in a high-security prison in Rawalpindi, Pakistan sat Rimsha Masih, a Christian girl with mental disabilities. “She was weeping and crying and full of fear,”the little girl’s lawyer said after visiting her. “She can’t even judge right and wrong because she’s a minor and she’s illiterate.”

Rimsha, determined to be 14 years old by a medical review (though relatives say she is only 11) had broken no laws to deserve imprisonment. She was not a murderer or a thief, as were the fellow inmates jailed next to her. Rimsha was, however, a Christian. Enraged mobs and local authorities needed no other reason to throw her behind bars.
