Pakistan: Asia Bibi What Next?

Islamic religious leaders in Pakistan have defended the court’s decision to free Asia Bibi.

Mufti Akeel Pirzada, President of the ‘Council of the Ulema for Peace’ in Pakistan, which is committed to building inter-religious harmony in the country, said: “No one tolerates a blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad and we are ready to sacrifice our lives for him. But how can the Court ever punish a defendant when there is solid evidence of her innocence? The decision of the Supreme Court of Pakistan to absolve Asia Bibi is remarkable and gives a message to the whole world: justice exists in Pakistan, for all citizens, regardless of religion, culture or ethnicity.”
