"This is how we get rid of Christians"

A Pakistani imam has been remanded in custody, accused of planting pages of the a [fixed it for yah..ed] Koran among burnt pages in the bag of a Christian girl held for blasphemy.

The girl was detained two weeks ago near the capital Islamabad after an angry mob demanded she be punished.

Imam Khalid Chishti allegedly told a witness that this was a "way of getting rid of Christians", a prosecutor said[...]

"The imam was arrested after his deputy Maulvi Zubair and two others told a magistrate he added pages from the a [fixed it for yah...ed] Koran to the burnt pages brought to him by a witness," an investigator Munir Hussain Jaffri said.

He said Mr Zubair and some others had told the imam not to interfere, urging him to "give the evidence to the police as he got it".

According to Mr Jaffri, Imam Chishti had told them: "You know this is the only way to expel the Christians from this area."

What, no angry crowds screaming for his death?
