Imtiaz Masih, whose case has not been made public until now, was acquitted on 7 February. The court found that witnesses testifying against him were unreliable...
...Masih's acquittal follows several high-profile cases of Christians being accused of blasphemy, which is an offence punishable by death in Pakistan.
In November 2014, a Christian couple near Lahore were been beaten and tortured by a mob for allegedly desecrating the Qur'an. Shama, 24, and her 26-year-old husband Shehzad were then burned to death in a brick kiln where they worked while the police stood by and watched.
Found guilty of blasphemy in November 2010, Asia Bibi has been on death row for more than four years. She continues to deny accusations that she insulted the Prophet Muhammad – charges levelled at her by former colleagues.
