Christian Nurses Re-instated

Justice Iqbal of the Supreme Court of Pakistan has ordered that the five Christian nurses accused of blashphemy at the Mandi Bahauddin Nursing Hostel be allowed to resume their humanitarian duties. The five were accused of defacing Quranic verses on a water-cooler, however the accuser is linked to Lal Masjid / Jamia Hafsa, madrassas that are more political than religious, and the accusation is suspect.

A full investigation and report has been ordered, but a cloud hangs over the Nurses heads for the next four weeks as a charge of blasphemy in Pakistan is very serious. Story at The Pakistan Observer.
