Asia Bibi – sign the petition for repeal of death sentence


asia-bibi-pakistanIt came to my attention today that a Pakistani mother of 5 has been held in jail in Pakistan since 2010 awaiting the death sentence for blasphemy.  The charge relates to her giving the following reason for not converting from Christianity to Islam:

Our Christ sacrificed His life on the cross for our sins. … Our Christ is alive.

If hanged, Asia Bibi will be the first Pakistani woman to die under the blasphemy laws.

You can sign a petition for her release at http://www.callformercy.com/

To date, only 9221 people in the United Kingdom have appealed for mercy in this way. Let’s make it many thousands more. You can easily share this request through Facebook and Twitter.

It might also be possible to write to Asia Bibi directly and to support the campaign for her release through the British Pakistani Christian Association.
