ICC Note:

Two Christians and a Hindu received excellent news that blasphemy charges against them were dropped. The two Christians were accused of burning a government document that had verses from the Quran in it. The incident occurred on September 28. Despite the good news, the Christians are constantly in danger of mob violence. Just because they are no longer officially charged with blasphemy, angry radicals may think otherwise. Pakistani Christians must be aware of both judicial and extrajudicial persecution.
