Christian persecution

Post  Hannah on Wed 10 Nov 2010, 6:56 pm

Asia a 45 years old farmhand and a mother of 5 children is sentenced to death under Blasphemy Law of Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

The incident took place when Asia offered water to other Muslim women who refused to drink because Asia is Christian and according to them she is "UNCLEAN".

The incident was forgotten until a few days later when Mrs Bibi said she was set upon by a mob.

The police were called and took her to a police station for her own safety.

Shahzad Kamran, of the Sharing Life Ministry Pakistan, said: "The police were under pressure from this Muslim mob, including clerics, asking for Asia to be killed because she had spoken ill of the Prophet Mohammed.

"So after the police saved her life they then registered a blasphemy case against her." He added that she had been held in isolation for more than a year before being sentenced to death on Monday.

Ali Hasan Dayan, of Human Rights Watch, while condemning the law said,
"It's an obscene law," he said. "Essentially the blasphemy law is used as a tool of persecution and to settle other scores that are nothing to do with religion.
