(LAHORE) - Eventually reality prevailed and 56 year old Agnes won her case after a difficult three years. According to the report publicized by "Sharing Life Ministry Pakistan" (SLMP), Agnes, a mother of 5, was arrested on blasphemy charges on January, 2011, when a regional property dealer filed a first Investigation Report – FIR no. 136/2011 beneath section 295–A (PPC) with police station in the city Faisalabad.

Due to the ill therapy and pain experienced during the period that the woman was jailed, she began to develop diabetes and kidney problems. Her family looked at the event but because of the lack of resources to solve it. Fortunately somehow, SLMP had taken this case and looked at the concerns of the woman family troubles.

Soon, SLMP positioned an attorney at law for Agnes inside the court and on July 14, 2011 she was bailed out without having to furnish the particular surety bonds of Rs. 100, 000/- towards the satisfaction of the learned judge. SLMP served her family when she was in the jail and also provided the woman legal assistance.

About October, 2013; SLMP turned to attorney Nadeem Anthony who filed an application under 249-A, and drew the attention of the particular Magistrate who examined the dishonest attitude of the complainant as well as the prosecution. Finally December 07, 2013, the judge acquitted and released the particular victim Agnes from the blasphemy event.

Sohail Johnson, chairman SLMP, explained the heaving charge of fighting true has driven her family deeply into debt, and put a tremendous strain on relationships. Sohail referenced a falsely arrested minor girl who was earlier released in Islamabad, although keeping in view the order of the Federal Sharia Judge to enforce a mandatory death time period for blasphemy, it could result in the execution of anyone who has been falsely arrested of blasphemy.
