Three witnesses whose testimony could absolve a 14-year-old Pakistani girl facing life in prison have changed their statements.
It’s the latest twist in the case of Rimsha Masih, a Christian teenager who was charged more than a month ago under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws for allegedly burning pages of Islam’s holy book for cooking fuel. She has denied the charges.
The three witnesses initially told police they saw Khalid Jadoon Chishti, a Muslim cleric, tear pages out of a copy of the Quran and put them with police evidence that led to the charges against Rimsha.
But they recanted those statements on Monday at a bail hearing for the cleric, according to the imam’s lawyer, Wajid Ali Gilani. A fourth witness stood by his initial statement.
The witnesses are a critical part of the police investigation that determined last week that the imam framed the teen. Based on that investigation and a lack of witnesses, her lawyers are now appealing to have the blasphemy charges dismissed.
There are many differences between Christians and Muslims, with one of them be this: If a Christian girl burns pages from the quran, she is persecuted thrown in jail, tortured or kill. It is a violent following with many muslims refusing to accept Christ as their Savior.
If a muslim girl burns pages from the Holy Word of God, the christian will pray for her.
The quran is filled with violent verses such as these: Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”
Yet the Holy Word of God tell us:
Mark 11:25 “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive your sins.”
The persecution of Christians will get worse for the Bible says so, but in the end the result will be Christ coming in great power and glory.
Matthew 5:10-12 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

They made false allegations against jesus and they know only too well now that it was a big mistake, all whom persecute the Lords chosen will not escape justice, the justice they face is worse than any sharia court, may the lord strengthen His servants to stand firm through the process and ready to recive a glorious resurection, He will prepare a table for them in the presence of their enemies.
When we read of the suffering
which our brothers and sisters in
Christ endure for the sake of His
Name, our hearts are moved and
we long to bring them before the
throne of grace. But sometimes it
is difficult to know exactly how to
pray, especially if we have never
experienced such injustice or
persecution ourselves. The Bible
tells us that the Church will be
persecuted. So if the Lord will
continue to allow persecution, what
exactly should we ask Him for
when we pray about these
situations? And hoped that our God will protect this girl from her enemies especially those satanic islam
Folk WHEN are “other religions going to realise that there is only One God Who Is Alive. The Christian Bible is Living… They can ALL be burnt + out Jesus is Still alive… He already died for us and lives in The Heavens – He is God as is The Holy Spirit. You can Burn every “religious book in the world and Jesus, The Living Word Will Always Prevail, cause He Is Alive FOREVER MORE…
