Blasphemer Dies

Pakistani Christian Sentenced for ‘Blasphemy’ Dies in Prison

A Christian serving a life sentence in Karachi Central Jail on accusations that he had sent text messages blaspheming the prophet of Islam died today amid suspicions that he was murdered. Qamar David’s life had been threatened since he and a Muslim, Munawar Ahmad, were accused of sending derogatory text messages about Muhammad in June 2006, said David’s former lawyer, Pervaiz Chaudhry.

It saddens me that a fellow Blasphemer has died. In this case, for what he believed in - in my case, what I don't.

Texting is a bad idea, folks. Bad idea.
