Pakistan: "As Good as Dead": The Impact of the Blasphemy Laws in Pakistan
Pakistan’s blasphemy laws are broadly worded leaving them open to abuse. Inadequate safeguards then mean the accused have few means to defend themselves. In a perversion of the justice system, the accused are often presumed to be guilty, on the basis of little or no evidence. This report documents cases which illustrate the broad scope for human rights violations and abuses, in order to highlight the need for urgent repeal of the laws and – until their repeal – the need for effective procedural safeguards to be put in place.
