Bos News Life reported yesterday that the release of five Christians charged with insulting Islam has been negotiated in Pakistan. Under the arrangement, a Punjab court ordered the five released, and Islamic clergy will issue a fatwa declaring them innocent of blasphemy. The charges against the five grew out of communal violence that was triggered after an argument between a 12-year old Christian boy and a Muslim acquaintance. Their argument resulted in a sticker containing the name of Allah ending up on the ground. Meanwhile Pakistan's Federal Minister for Minorities, Shahbaz Bhatti, says he favors repeal of Pakistan's blasphemy laws.
