Ashfaq Masih, Shagufta and Shafquat in Pakistan


More wicked blasphemy charges when a Muslim has a grudge against a Christian believer or believers  like Sadhu who refused to pay for a repair to his bike and an argument ensued. Ashfaq, who lives in Green town, Lahore was arrested and  will have to stand trial.

Pray he will be totally exonerated and the government will take steps to outlaw this evil practice.

The Lahore High Court in Pakistan has set June 25 as the next hearing date for Shagufta Kausar and Shafqat Masih – a Christian couple that was sentenced to death for blasphemy in 2014. The accused couple denied the allegations and claimed that the false accusation was meant to punish them over a previous dispute between their children and the children of the mosque cleric. 
HOW TO PRAY: Pray for all false charges against the couple to be dropped. Pray for the freedom of Shagufta and Shafqat. Pray for those who falsely accused the couple to be held accountable.
