BREAKING NEWS: ASIA BIBI’S APPEAL AGAINST DEATH SENTENCE REJECTED
Barnabas Fund has today received the sad news that the appeal made by Pakistani Christian mother Aasia Bibi against her conviction underPakistan’s “blasphemy law” has been rejected and the death sentence she was given confirmed.
Aasia Bibi has been languishing in jail since June 2009
Aasia’s appeal was dismissed this morning at a hearing held at the High Court in Lahore. She has been languishing in prison since being falsely accused of defiling the name of Muhammad during an argument with Muslim co-workers in 2009.
Please pray for Aasia and her family at this extremely difficult time, and please also consider writing to your elected representative on Aasia’s behalf. Guidance for how best to do so can be foundhere.
