Pakistani authorities have arrested an 11 year old Christian girl after she was accused of blasphemy and is being detained in Jalalabad. She was arrested after hundreds of neighbours, angry over reports she had allegedly burned religious papers, gathered outside her house in a poor outlying district of the capital, Islamabad. There are questions on whether the child is mentally handicapped and her age is reported to range from 11 to 16 years but she was unable to speak when brought to the station. It sounds like ProFam is needed in Pakistan. Finally samurai brings sword to gun fight.
