If you caught this on the BBC News Facebook page last night, you may have been a little confused over who they tagged in one of their posts!

Pakistani Law Minister, Zahid Hamid reportedly resigned after protests were staged against a perceived “softening” of the nation’s blasphemy laws.

According to the New Straits Times, the minister resigned when he was accused of blasphemy for leaving out a reference to Prophet Muhammad in a revised version of the country’s electoral oath. Protests were called off not long after his resignation.
