‘Aasia Is Out.’ Christian Woman Acquitted of Blasphemy Leaves Pakistan for Canada


Quranmetropolitanmuseum1.jpgFinally, Aasia Bibi could leave Pakistan and go to Canada. This is daily nightmare for millions of Christians living in Muslim nations. They never know when they will be charged with blasphemy laws. These laws are not some fringe ideas. They come from Sharia which originated 1400 years ago.

Let us pray for Pakistan. It is under the death cult of Islam. What they need is the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. They need His forgiveness and grace.

Below is the story from Time.com


A Christian woman acquitted of blasphemy after spending eight years on death row in Pakistan has left for Canada to be reunited with her daughters, Pakistani officials and others involved in the case said Wednesday.

Aasia Bibi was convicted of blasphemy in 2009 after a quarrel with a fellow farmworker. The Supreme Court overturned her conviction last year, and she had been in protective custody since then.

Islamic extremists have rioted over the case and threatened to kill her. The same radical Islamists, many of whom have been jailed for their threats, also urged the overthrow of the government following Bibi’s acquittal.

Wilson Chawdhry of the British Pakistani Christian Association told The Associated Press that he received a text message from a British diplomat saying “Aasia is out.” A close friend of Bibi also confirmed that she had left the country, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal. Her lawyer, Saif-ul Malook, said she had already arrived in Canada.
