Demanding Asia Bibi’s Immediate Release

By ACLJ.org1477665756988

Several weeks ago, we sent an emergency advocacy letter to Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States demanding Pakistan free Asia Bibi—the Christian mother of five currently on death row in Pakistan.

This week we sent a second letter to Ambassador Jilani. In this letter, we expressed our dismay with the Supreme Court of Pakistan’s decision to further delay justice for Asia by postponing her appeal hearing. Again, we urged the Ambassador to do everything in his power to “advocate for Asia’s freedom.”

Our letter states:

This further delay in Asia’s case is unacceptable. As we stated before, Asia’s arrest, imprisonment, and death sentence violate international agreements Pakistan has ratified without reservations.  Asia has already spent seven years in prison waiting for the final outcome of her case. Now the Supreme Court has further delayed her case. This is utterly unconscionable in light of the well-known fact that most blasphemy cases are based on false accusations, followed by faulty investigations and trials full of errors. This is precisely what happened in Asia’s case.

Asia’s only crime was affirming her faith in Jesus Christ. Her firm stand for her Christian faith has cost her dearly. Her case is a controversial one, with radical Islamic clerics calling for her to be hanged. This controversy, however, does not excuse Pakistan from honoring its international and domestic legal obligations. Asia is still on death row, her fate is still uncertain, and Pakistan’s Supreme Court has yet to reschedule her hearing. In the face of this uncertainty, we are a constant -- working continuously to advocate for Asia’s freedom.

Asia is not forgotten, or alone. Currently, over 540,500 people from around the world have signed our petition for Asia’s freedom. These signatures are important as we are able to show Pakistan that the world is watching this case.

Sign our petition and add your voice to those advocating for her immediate release.
