A campaign to save a Pakistani Christian sentenced to death for blasphemy is being supported by Christian Voice. Asia Bibi has been in prison for eighteen months after her Muslim neighbours fell out with her and accused her of blasphemy when, in response to being asked what Jesus had done for her, she asked them what Mohammed had ever done for them. That was just the culmination of a campaign of intimidation against Asia Bibi.
Stephen Green of Christian Voice and Wilson Chowdry of BPCA discussing the plight of Christians in Pakistan, opposite 10 Downing Street.
We supported the British Pakistani Christian Association by attending a witness for Asia Bibi on Saturday 4th December at the Pakistan High Commission at 12 noon before moving to
10 Downing Street
PRAY: That President Zardawi of
will respond to international calls for Asia Bibi to be released. There is a story around that he wants to release her, but that the Supreme Court of Pakistan has blocked the move until all legal process has finished, which could take months if not years. Meanwhile this determined young woman's children need their mother.
