11-year-old girl arrested in Pakistan on charges of blasphemy

An 11yo Christian girl, with Down Syndrome, has been arrested in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad, being charged with blasphemy, after she was accused of burning pages of the Q'uran last week.

The NGO 'Christians in Pakistan' has reported the girl was falsely accused of burning ten pages of the Q'uran.
ISLAMABAD: An 11-year-old Christian girl has been arrested in Pakistani capital on a charge of blasphemy after she was accused of burning pages of the Q'uran, police said on Saturday. The accusation was made by a man who lives in the same sector as she does.

However, an NGO named 'Christians in Pakistan' reported on its website that the girl has 'Down Syndrome' and had been falsely accused of burning 10 pages of the Quran.

It seems as though this is an orchestrated 'land grab' to get this small group of Christians out of the G-12 sector of Islamabad.
