Lahore: November 2, 2018. (PCP) The Islamists in Pakistan with violence force establishment to enter name of Asia Bibi in ECL and to not file any objection to a Review Petition against judgment of Pakistan Supreme Court decision to release blasphemy accused Christian woman sentenced to death by lower courts.
The violent clashes and attack on public properties erupt by religious groups as on October 31, 2018, a Division Bench of Supreme Court of Pakistan acquitted Asia Bibi from blasphemy charges and ordered her release from jail after 10 years.
BPCA Chairman Wilson Chowdhry said: "They have applied to an embassy for asylum though they have declined to identify the country but the process is dangerously slow in a situation as emergent as this one.
"Acquitted blasphemy victim Asia Bibi may be summarily thrown to the lions by the world if her family is not quickly given asylum in a foreign country and anything delays her exit from the country.
"Every moment that she stays in Pakistan Asia Bibi remains a lightning rod for radical extremists."
Meanwhile, Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC have strongly condemned violence by Islamists on SCP decision to acquit Asia Bibi, a blasphemy law victim Christian woman behind bars from 10 years facing death sentence.
