International Christian Voice is reporting that Pakistan has dropped all charges against Rimsha Masih under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. Masih is a 14-year-old Christian girl who was accused of having burned pages of the Qur’an in August. She was subsequently released on bail, after which she and her family went into hiding. ICV and other organizations had been working tirelessly and praying for her freedom, which has finally come. However, this does not spell the end of the frequent abuse of the blasphemy laws, the brunt of which has been borne by the Pakistan’s Christian community.
