Can someone accused of blasphemy ever receive a fair trial in Pakistan?
With a panel of expert speakers, the seminar will provide a holistic overview of the current outlook for the freedom of religion or belief and the persecution of minorities in Pakistan. It will examine the challenges faced by lawyers who represent the most vulnerable minorities and what the international community can do to support those at risk, particularly those accused of blasphemy. The panel discussion will also consider the current situation regarding the nationalisation of Edwardes College in Peshawar.
