United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has welcomed the acquittal of Pakistani Christian citizens in Youhanabad lynching case.

“USCIRF welcomes the acquittal of 42 Pakistani #Christians (2 of whom died while in prison) and urges #Pakistan govt to release all those wrongly imprisoned simply because of their faith,” the USCIRF tweeted.

Following the compromise reached with complainants, an anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Wednesday acquitted 40 people accused in the Youhanabad lynching cases of two men, Babar Noman and Naeem.

The court also acquitted 47 members of the Christian community, who were accused of arson, rioting and damaging state property. ATC Judge Arshad Hussain Bhutta concluded four trials relating to the Youhanabad incident.
