An application for the transfer of Younus Masih from Mianwali toLahoreprison has been filled by CLASS lately.
Younus Masih- a convict of blasphemy has been imprisoned since 8 years, subsequent to a death sentence by a local court. He suffered from a severe heart attack on 8th January, 2013. He was rushed to the Civil Hospital Mianwali upon requisition from CLASS. The jail superintendent was reluctant to shift Younus Masih to the hospital due to security concerns but later on gave his consent to the request made by CLASS.
The organization has filed an application with the High Authorities of the Home Department for his relocation to the Lahore prison, to make certain a trouble-free access of his family, while he awaits a final verdict from the Lahore High Court.
