According to an official, a Pakistani court has sentenced a Muslim woman to death for insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad in text messages she sent to a friend, finding her guilty of blasphemy.
In May 2020, Aneeqa Atteeq was arrested after a man reported that she sent him caricatures of Prophet on whatsapp — which are considered sacrilegious.
In Pakistan, blasphemy laws can lead to a death sentence for anyone found guilty of insulting religion or religious figures.
According to a government official, Awais Ahmed. The verdict was announced on Wednesday in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.
