Pakistan Moves to Protect Girl over Alleged Qur'an BurningSalem-News.com
Shortly after William Gomes reported a heated case involving the religious persecution of a little girl, Pakistan's President moved in and ended it.
(SALEM) - A government intervention for the sake of Human Rights has taken place in another extraordinary turn of events involving the writings of our Human Rights Ambassador, William Nicholas Gomes.
In a letter to Mr. Asif Ali Zardari; President of Pakistan, Mr. Gomes called attention to a serious situation involving the religious persecution of a child, and a government intervention has taken place.
There will be no prosecution of a young Christian girl described as having Downs Syndrome, who allegedly burned pages of the Holy Qur'an.
Both BosNewsLife Asia Service, and Pakistan Christian Post, published reports about the detention of the 11-year old Pakistani Christian girl; Mr. Gomes' credits those reports as source material for his letter to Pakistan's President.
Dawn, one of Pakistan's largest media outlets, wrote today:

It is fantastic to know that these events connect and to have a role in an incident that brings relief to an innocent child being hounded by a political/religious system that often bears little compassion. The President's intervening actions in this particular case are extremely commendable.
We seriously applaud the fact that we can publish good news in relation to this story.
