KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief (MQM) Altaf Hussain, expressing sorrow over the recent blasphemy case filed against a Christian girl, called Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Thursday.
Hussain told Malik that such episodes are exacerbating the insecurity felt by religious minorities and such incidents needs to be stopped.
Malik, in turn, assured Hussain that the case will be resolved soon.
Earlier in August, Rimsha Masih, an 11-year-old reported to have Down Syndrome, was arrested for allegedly burning pages inscribed with verses from the Holy Quran. She was taken into custody in a low-income area of Islamabad on Thursday after a furious mob demanded she be punished.
However, recently a Christian activist, who met Rimsha, has seen a medical report which states that the girl has no mental illness.
Xavier William said that, “She was frightened and traumatized.”
