Pakistan Supreme Court to review Asia Bibi’s blasphemy acquittal

Pakistan’s Supreme Court will on Tuesday begin a review of its acquittal of Christian woman Asia Bibi charged with blasphemy. Bibi has been in hiding since the Supreme Court freed her in October, a verdict that sparked days of religious protests. If the verdict is upheld, Bibi is widely expected to seek asylum abroad due to safety concerns.

Good for her that she was acquitted. Let's hope she can escape the shithole alive. Meanwhile, there are currently over 180 Christians in Pakistan charged with blasphemy, which is punishable by either life imprisonment or death. https://zenit.org/articles/pakistan-nearly-200-cases-of-christians-on-blasphemy-charges/
