Pakistani Accused of Blasphemy over Anti-Muslim Film

Ad Feedback

A Pakistani businessman accused of blasphemy against the Islamic Prophet Mohammed has been threatened with death.

Haji Nasrullah Kahn owns 120 shops and is chairman of a local shopkeepers association in southern Pakistan.

The accusations came because Kahn refused to close his shops in protest of the anti-Muslim film "Innocence of Muslims."

The film has been blamed for protests across the Middle East.

Angry demonstrators demanded that Khan shut down his business in a show of solidarity.

When Khan refused, he was accused of supporting the film and one man said he blasphemed Mohammed during the argument.

Protesters then ransacked Khan's house and Muslim leaders in the city have called for his death.

Khan and his family are now in hiding.
