A Pakistani Christian man was sentenced to death for a poem he allegedly wrote that insulted Islam.
According to The Daily Wire, 35-year-old Nadeem James sent the poem to a Muslim friend on WhatsApp. The poem supposedly contained derogatory comments towards Muhammad.
“James was handed a death sentence by the court on Thursday on blasphemy charges,” his defense lawyer Anjum Wakeel said.
Wakeel also said the trial was being held inside the prison due to security concerns because local Muslims had threatened James and his family.
“My client will appeal the sentence in the high court as he has been framed by his friend who was annoyed over James’ affair with a Muslim girl,” Wakeel added.
