    A Christian couple has been arrested in Gojra district of Pakistan's Punjab province for sending 'blasphemous' mobile phone text messages to Muslims.

    Complainants Tehsil Bar Association President Anwar Mansoor Goraya and trader Malik Muhammad Hussain told police that the Saint Cathedral School watchman Shafqat Masih and his wife Shagufta Masih had sent them blasphemous text messages. A Gojra judicial magistrate yesterday sent the couple on judicial remand.

    The police registered a blasphemy case under section 295-C of Pakistan Penal Code against the accused, residents of Gojra Christian Colony, some 200 kilometres from Lahore.

    The accused, however, denied the allegation. Two weeks ago, a Pakistani court had handed down life imprisonment to a 27-year-old Christian man for sending 'blasphemous' mobile text messages to some Muslim clerics in the same district.
