Police in Pakistan say Rimsha Masih is innocent

Police in Pakistan have submitted an interim charge sheet to the court in the case of Rimsha Masih, the young girl accused of desecrating the Qur’an, and have concluded that she is innocent of the charges.

The charge sheet, lodged with the court on Saturday, suggests that Mohammed Khalid Chishti, the local imam, is guilty of burning pages of theĀ Norani Qaida, a Qur’an study guide, and placing the pages in Rimsha’s bag in an attempt to stir anti-Christian feeling in a district of Mehrabadi, Islamabad.
