Pakistan Christians feel threatened

Unease spreads among the Christian minority as blasphemy law reignites controversy.

    Pakistan's blasphemy law has been in the spotlight since November, when a court sentenced to death a Christian woman for insulting Islam.

    The government, under intense pressure, has repeatedly said it will not scrap or amend the law, and rallies have been held in support of it.

    The recent furore has left many in the Christian minority feeling increasingly threatened, as  Kamal Hyder reports from Lahore.
