Asia Bibi and Her Case – Everything You Want To Know
Asia Bibi who had been in protective custody since being acquitted of blasphemy by the SC last year has left Pakistan for Canada. The country had offered her asylum along with her family.
She had spent eight years in jail for a crime she did not commit. After her acquittal last year, religious extremists were on the streets protesting the verdict and demanding her execution. But since the news of her leaving Pakistan, there has been silence from such groups. Perhaps because the leaders of TLP including its head Khadim Rizvi are detained.
