Rimsha Masih, a Christian girl who was accused of blasphemy for allegedly burning Islam's holy book in Pakistan, is now living safely in Canada according to Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.

The case focused international attention on Pakistan's harsh blasphemy laws.

Her lawyer said she fled Pakistan with her parents, three sisters and a brother, on March 14. because of concerns for her life.

The girl was arrested in August in Islamabad after a Muslim cleric accused her of burning the Koran. The cleric was later arrested for faking evidence.

Pakistani mobs have attacked and killed people accused of blasphemy in the past. Two prominent politicians who have discussed changes to the blasphemy laws have been killed according to The Guardian.
