A court in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore has sentenced a Christian man to death for having committed “blasphemy”, his lawyer says, in the latest case of Pakistan’s strict religious laws being applied against minorities.
Asif Pervaiz, 37, has been in custody since 2013 when he was accused of having sent “blasphemous” text messages to a former supervisor at work according to lawyer Saif-ul-Malook.
The court rejected Asif Pervaiz’s testimony wherein he denied the charges and sentenced him to death on Tuesday.
