Lahore: October 31, 2018. (PCP) On October 31, 2018, the Supreme Court of Pakistan has announced to declare the verdict of Assia Bibi, the Christian women who is in jail on the charges of blasphemy since 2010 and had appealed at the Supreme Court against her death sentence by the High Court. In Response, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, the Chief Cleric of Hardcore Extremist Group Tehreek Labek Pakistan in his video message has called upon his followers to come out on the roads and be ready to do and die in case the verdict of Supreme Court comes in favour of Assia Bibi. Mumtaz Qadri, the killer who killed Governor Salman Taseer in daylight in the capital in 2011 belonged to this school of thought and group. Governor Taseer was killed for supporting Assia Bibi and opposing the misuse of Pakistan's Blasphemy Laws. This is a highly tensed and threatened situation for the religious minorities, especially for Pakistani Christians and there is fear of persecution of Christians and attack on their Churches and other properties. Therefore, we call upon the Government of Pakistan and the Supreme Court to take notice of the threat call made by Khadim Rizvi and his Group prior to the announcement of Assia Bibi verdict. We also call upon to ban Tehreek Labek Pakistan and all similar Extemist Groups who are involved in hate speech and use religion as a tool to promote violence in the society. We also call upon the Government and law enforcement agencies to beef up the security and ensure the deployment of military troops to safeguard the lives and property of religious minorities, especially the Christian Community.
