A 25 year old, Christian boy, Sawan Masih, allegedly accused of committing blasphemy by his nearby residers, in Lahore.
Sawan Masih is a sanitary worker, and is said to have outraged the Muslim community by making reviling remarks about Prophet Muhammad. These accusations spring from a local barber, Shahid Imran who claimed that Sawan Masih had made derogatory remarks about the Prophet Muhammad; during a private conversation three days prior to these acts of ruination.
The local police officer, Multan Khan declares that Sawan Masih was arrested on Friday the 8th of March, 2013 while the incident of blasphemy is reported to have taken place on Wednesday the 6th of March. He goes on to reveal that the young offender is said to be drunk while during his offensive conversation. The police has filed a case of blasphemy against the convict under section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code.
Due to fear of counteraction the Christians of Sawan’s locality had earlier fled from their homes, as a result of which there were no casualities.
