A special court in Pakistan has rejected claims that Mohammad Asghar, a British national of Pakistani origin, has mental health problems and sentenced him to death for blasphemy, AFP reported.
The special court inside Rawalpindi's Adiala Jail near Islamabad, where the Briton is being held, "declared him as a normal person" Javed Gul, a government prosecutor, told the news agency.
Asghar claimed to be a prophet even inside the court. He confessed it in front of the judge.
Asghar used to write it even on his visiting card.
