Asia Bibi, the Christian farm labourer whose blasphemy case has triggered violent protests and assassinations in Pakistan, has been freed from jail but remains in protective custody, a week after the country’s supreme court overturned her conviction.
Officials said that she left a detention facility in the Punjab province amid tight security on Wednesday and was flown to Islamabad, where she was at a secure location because of threats to her life.
“She has been freed. I have been told that she is on a plane but nobody knows where she will land,” her lawyer Saif-ul-Malook said in a message sent to AFP.
Martyrs for Christ wants to thank each and everyone who prayed continuesly for her safety and freedom, above all for Father’s hand of safety that was over her all the time. Blessings
