The New Indian Express - - WORLD -

Three mem­bers of the per­se­cuted Ah­madiyya com­mu­nity have been sen­tenced to death and fined D200,000 each in Pak­istan’s Pun­jab prov­ince for com­mit­ting blas­phemy by tear­ing up posters that de­manded boy­cott of the mi­nor­ity sect. A blas­phemy case reg­is­tered against them in May in 2014 for tear­ing re­li­gious postes, urg­ing so­cial boy­cott of the Ah­madiyya com­mu­nity.
