Demand that the Government of Pakistan Release Shagufta Kausar and Shafqat Emmanuel
In June 2014, Shagufta Kausar and Shafqat Emmanuel were falsely accused of committing blasphemy. Following the accusation, the police arrested Shagufta, tortured him, and threatened to torture his family if he did not confess. The government imprisoned the husband and wife in separate prisons and continues to hold them on false charges.
The accusations are even more appalling due to the fact that Shagufta and Shafqat are illiterate. The couple cannot write in Urdu, let alone English, and the fact that the text messages were written in English makes the accusations even more preposterous.
Time for Action
It is time to call on the authorities in Pakistan to demand justice for these wrongfully imprisoned believers.
We are raising our voice to urge the government of Pakistan to unconditionally release Shagufta and Shafqat.
