Some Pakistanis have condemned the Pope's recent comments that the country should repeal its controversial blasphemy law.

Senior religious leaders have called the statement an "interference in Pakistan's internal matters" and an offence to Muslims worldwide.

The head of the Roman Catholic Church made the statement following the assassination of Salman Taseer, a Pakistani politician who was gunned down because of his opposition to the law.
