Blasphemy on social media : Man sentenced to death

A government prosecutor says a judge has sentenced a Pakistani Muslim to death for sharing blasphemous content about Islam on social media.

Shafiq Chaudhry says Judge Shabir Ahmed announced the sentence for 30-year-old Taimore Raza on Saturday in Bahawalpur, a city in eastern Punjab province Pakistan.

Raza was arrested last year for allegedly posted derogatory content about some religious leaders and wives of the Prophet Mohammed(PBUH) on Facebook.

Under Pakistan’s harsh blasphemy laws, anyone accused of insulting God, Islam or other religious personalities can be sentenced to death.
