Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said on Thursday that Asia Bibi is a free person now. She is living in Pakistan. The Supreme Court of Pakistan has set her free from the case of blasphemy that was filed against her years ago.
After the review petition, The Supreme Court has finally declared her innocent rejecting the petition. In an interview with the BBC, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said, “She is a free person. The Supreme Court has found her innocent. They have acquitted her.”
After a life long struggle, Asia Bibi is finally free to live her life the way she wants to. She can live in Pakistan for as many years as she can. And the government will protect her from offences and protests. If there is someone who is willing to help her then he may do this. “We have asked friends around the world if they want to help her,” said Qureshi.
However, those who are opposing her and are protesting against her freedom, the government will take strict and serious actions against them. He goes on saying, “People were taken into custody and put behind bars.” He further cleared out the concept of blasphemy and make an appeal for not using the law of blasphemy illegally. People must have a clear understanding of the law.
This is surely a great news for those who consider Asia Bibi guiltless.
