RAWALPINDI: Police have arrested prayer leader Khalid Jadoon on charges of fabricating evidence, which he had used to accuse Rimsha Masih of committing blasphemy by allegedly burning Quranic pages, Express News reported early on Sunday.

Express News correspondent Qamarul Munawar said that Hafiz Muhammad Zubair, who witnessed Jadoon adding pages of the Quran, recorded a statement with the Rawalpindi magistrate on Saturday.

According to Zubair’s account, he was sitting in Iteqaaf in the mosque when some people handed burnt pages to the prayer leader. After a little while, Jadoon added additional pages of the Quran to the pile.

Zubair, in his statement added that three other people present with him in the mosque asked Jadoon why he was adding documents to the pile of burnt paper, to which prayer leader said that such an act was necessary to strengthen their case.

Munawar reported that Islamabad police has now arrested Jadoon who are now questioning him.

Rimsha has been in custody since she was arrested more than two weeks ago accused of burning Quranic papers, in breach of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. According to medical reports Rimsha is 14 year old minor, and has a mental age below her real age.

  1. Please dont use word imam for Khalid Jadoon aur Alim. How can an Alim accuse some one wrongly he is not alim. Actually the case of Balsphemey should be against Khalid Jadoon and he should be punished in the chowk. And innocent child should be protected and let her go and all the christians should get compensation from trying to remove them from their houses. It seems some land grabbing media used Khalid jadoon and pay some money to him or may be he has some % of it. it is more of case to grab the land then Balsphemy. I grown up in a small village where over 50% population is christian. And I found them very respective of islam and Muslims. And they were so nice when we were building our masjid swear to Allah they helped us building masjid and did not accept any money in regard. Our christian community is very good peace loving and loyal to pakistan. Please as a muslim it is our duty to protect our minorities and these kind fake molvies please kick them out of masajid they are not imam they are bay-iman.
