Aid to the Church in Need and the British Pakistani Christian Association have launched a petition asking the British Prime Minister to
"call upon the government of Pakistan to take action to promote justice and equal human rights for all irrespective of faith or any other diversity.
The Blasphemy Law of Pakistan (sections 298A and 295 B&C of the penal code) is being used to settle personal vendettas. We ask that the Blasphemy Law provide universal protection for all faiths, with better auditing of authorities involved with its practical application, or that the law be repealed in its current form"You can sign the petition here.
Please support the suffering faithful in Pakistan - and encourage friends and family to sign as well.
Aid to the Church in Need will also be joining a Protest March against Pakistan's blasphamy laws. The march is orgnised by the British Pakistani Christian Association and will bring together Christian and Muslim leaders, united against religious injustice.The march will take place in London next Saturday, 2nd July. I won't be in the UK, but would encourage any readers in or around London to consider showing their support.
