The case against Rimsha Masih, the teenage Pakistani Christian girl, has today been dropped by the court in the Pakistani capital Islamabad. "This is the first case of its kind when a person charged under the strict blasphemy laws is exonerated from the accusation," said Naveed Chaudry, one of Rimsha’s lawyers.
Rimsha Masih and her family will remain in Pakistan after her legal ordeal is over, one of her lawyers says. The teenage Pakistani girl, who was arrested in August on suspicion of desecrating Islamic texts, is due to appear in an Islamabad juvenile court Oct. 17.
