petitions against blasphemy laws
I just discovered the change.org site today. I have been wondering for some time what could be done about the blasphemy laws in Pakistan. These mean usually innocent Christians get lynched after they have spent years languishing in prison awaiting a presidential pardon. I am most moved by the case of Mohammed Samiullah, who as far as a I know, is still in prison on account of his Theology exam.

I have links for people who feel the same way as me to sign:
Pakistani president and government: Repeal the blasphemy law

Government of Pakistan: Release Asia Bibi
