Story number 2 for 12 Aug 2003

By August 12, 2003

(Pakistan)–Elsewhere, Voice of the Martyrs reports a Pakistani court has upheld the conviction of two Christians accused of committing blasphemy against the Islamic holy book. The two Christians received life sentences–the maximum penalty for desecration of the Koran under Pakistan’s 295-B blasphemy law. They are expected to appeal the Lahore court decision to Pakistan’s Supreme Court. Pakistan is known to be hostile toward Christians. Please pray for those involved in evangelistic work there.
