Pakistani Christian Charged for Blasphemy

May 05, 2003 03:38 PM EDT

Voice of the Martyrs reports that a Christian in Punjab, Pakistan faces life in prison, charged under their strict blasphemy laws. Ranjha Masih has been held without bail since his arrest five years ago. Pray his conviction is repealed and that it helps dismantle the blasphemy law, frequently used against Christians. Pray too, for those involved with evangelism in Pakistan who face strong persecution.
