There is no provision in Pakistan's blasphemy law to punish a false accuser or a false witness. Since 1990, more than 65 Christians have been killed for "blasphemy;" more than 165 cases are waiting for verdicts
In recent years, the Christians of Pakistan have become one of the most vulnerable religious communities in the world. Most of the time, the Pakistani extremists use two common accusations to persecute the Christians: defamatory remarks toward Mohammed, and burning pages of Quran.

The conference, organised by the Pakistan Minorities Rights Organisation (PMRO) UK, was hosted by Baroness Berridge who chairs the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on International Religious Freedom. I am not sure that this committee will have the willingness to properly address the problems raised by the people at the conference.
