Islamists Get Minority Rights Leader Jailed in Pakistan

Image

Lahore: July 17, 2009. Compass Direct News reports that Pakistani minority rights activist Joseph Francis and two other officials from the Centre for Legal Aid Assistance and settlement (CLAAS) were imprisoned for forged documents.

Christians believe the arrest was connected with a false charge of assaulting a woman he had counseled regarding her conversion to Islam, at the behest of her Christian parents. One of Francis’ lawyers told Compass that the court did not listen to arguments for releasing Francis as it was biased toward the Islamists who have urged the woman to charge the CLAAS officials with assault.
