Accusations of blasphemy are surging in Pakistan, according to an Islamabad-based think-tank, the Center for Research and Security Studies. The report comes as Pakistan has handed a death sentence for blasphemy to Mohammad Ashgar, a Briton with a history of mental health problems.
Many analysts see the blasphemy claims as score-settling or a front for property grabs. The charges are hard to fight because the law does not define what is blasphemous and presenting the evidence can sometimes itself be considered a fresh infringement.
