On October 16, 2014, an appeals court in Lahore Pakistan has upheld the death sentence for a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, who was falsely convicted of "blasphemy" (speaking against the prophet Muhammad) in 2010.
As the lone Christian household in her town, she was targeted for being a Christian when an argument broke out over a cup of water as she was picking fruit in a field with Muslim women. Asia Bibi was convicted on trumped up charges and sentenced to execution by hanging on November 8, 2010. This wife and mother of five would be the first woman to be executed under Pakistan’s Shariah blasphemy law.
Not only has she been sentenced to death, but she also has a price on her head issued by a radical Muslim cleric encouraging the Taliban to carry out her execution. Her husband and family have suffered for the past several years, fearing for their safety, but with the hope that her conviction may be overturned. Now that decision rests in Pakistan’s Supreme Court.
This vile attack on a Christian wife and mother cannot stand. Asia Bibi must be freed. We’re mobilizing our international offices, including our international affiliate the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ) and its partner in Pakistan which have been successfully fighting these blasphemy laws for years, to fight for her freedom. There is still much to be done. Your voice can make the difference. Share her story on social media using #FreeBibi and #BeHeard.
