Lecturer sentenced to death for blasphemy

Lecturer sentenced to death for blasphemy

A university lecturer has been sentenced to death for blasphemy in Pakistan. Junaid Hafeez, 33, was arrested in March 2013, accused of posting derogatory comments about the Prophet on social media. Hafeez’s first lawyer was shot dead in 2014 after agreeing to take on the case. Hafeez has spent time in solitary confinement, after repeated attacks by other prisoners.

So his defense lawyer was shot dead "extrajudicially". And the prosecutors celebrated by passing out sweets upon the verdict. That is not a justice system at all. The guy had a liberal education in the West and appears to have liked the values of it. I can only imagine that he went back to Pakistan to try and make it better; if so, he's brave as hell.
