Amjad and Asif claim that the police officers set fire to the book themselves because they refused to pay a bribe. However, the Lahore High Court has agreed with the prosecution, saying that, "The act of the accused was calculated to outrage the religious feelings of the Muslim(s)."

It is expected that the decision will be appealed to Pakistan's Supreme Court. Please pray for Amjad and Asif, as well as their families. Pray for protection in prison and for a successful appeal. Family members of those convicted of blasphemy regularly face discrimination and threats. Pray for protection and strength for their families.
