Clemency for Asia Noreen Bibi in Pakistan.

Clemency for Asia Noreen Bibi in Pakistan.


Why this is important

Asia Noreen Bibi was sentenced to death by hanging in Pakistan for the alleged crime of blasphemy. She is a Christian in an Islamic country. Notable people who have publicly supported her case, like Salman Taseer, have been murdered and there are fears for Asia's safety while in custody. A local Muslim leader has offered a $6,000 reward to anyone who murders Asia Bibi. The family of Asia Bibi is also getting death threats. I call on the Pakistan Judicial System for clemency for Asia and her family and for them to be given asylum in a place of safety. This is a Human Rights issue of crucial importance.  Here is a link to a BBC video about the plight of this unfortunate lady and her family:
