    Maulvi Mohammad Hussain, the prayer leader at a local mosque in Gojra, lodged a complaint against couple on July 21 last year for sending him a text message which he said was insulting to the Prophet Muhammad.(they send msg to Maulvi:scared2:)

    Hussain accused the husband of sending the message from his wife's cellphone.

    However, defence lawyer Hassan said that the text originated from a cellphone which the couple had lost some time before the incident, so they could not have sent the message.

    The defence lawyer said that the couple had suspected rivals of implicating them into blasphemy case to settle personal scores and that they had ties with the complainant.

    Pakistan has extremely strict laws against defaming Islam, including the death penalty for insulting the Prophet Muhammad, and rights campaigners say they are often used to settle personal disputes.

    In 2009 a mob attacked a Christian neighbourhood in Gojra and burned 77 houses and killed at least seven people after rumours that a Quran had been desecrated.

    Allah should have outlawed technology, especially modern communication systems. Would have saved a lot of trouble.

    At-least sms send would have been recorded in servers for a long time and so can be verified. But, worse are the witch hunt from hearsay accusation of blasphemy.

    This is why shariah should not be allowed in a modern muslim country.

    Mullahs are the cancer of our society.

    May Zia-ul-Haq rot in hell for implementing Blasphemy and Hudood law.
