from washingtonpost:

"Wajid Gilani said a district judge in Islamabad granted his motion to acquit his client Khalid Chishti. He says the judge ruled that the prosecution had not brought forward evidence sufficient to convict.

"Chishti had accused the young girl of burning pages of Islam’s holy book last year. Weeks later, he was arrested for allegedly planting pages of a Quran in a shopping bag containing burned papers and ash.

"The girl, who now has taken refuge in Canada along with her family ..."

... was in fear for her life when Paki muslims wanted to burn her alive for desecrating their quran.

But now the Imam who ripped up pages of islam's holy book just to frame a Christian child with Down Syndrome for blasphemy is off the hook!!!!!

Only reason action was taken in the first place was that it received international attention.

Like everything else in islam, sharia is self-serving, esp. when muslims want the land of local Christians to build a madrassa; so then an Imam frames a girl for blasphemy knowuing that his fellow muslims will riot and cause her entire neighborhood to flee, leaving all their property behind.
