Musings of a Recovering Lutheran: Update on Asia Bibi
O LORD, God of my salvation,
         I have cried out day and night before You.
Let my prayer come before You;
         Incline Your ear to my cry. 

Psalm 88:1-2 (NKJV)

Update on Asia Bibi



An interview with Asia bibi's husband.

Key quote:

Ashiq Masih ... fears that something might happen to him or his daughters. Yet he wants to tell the story of his wife to the world. He has already collected more than 18,000 signatures through the Catholic relief mission.

On February 24, he is set to talk at this year's Human Rights Summit in Geneva, seeking more international support for his wife.

And he has a clear message: "I call on the human rights organizations and the international community to continue supporting us with the effective handling of the Asia Bibi case."

Since that summer day in 2009 when, according to Muslim villagers, Asia Bibi made derogatory remarks about the Prophet, his family has lost everything. "My children do not have their mother anymore. They are missing something very important. I need my wife, the children need their mother."

Giving up is not an option for Ashiq Masih, who has vowed to keep on fighting: "We trust in God's help and hope that one day my wife will be with us and then we can live in peace."

Read Asia Bibi's own words.

The online petition calling for mercy for Asia Bibi can still be found here.

For those who do not know who she is, here is the story about Asia Bibi's unjust imprisonment and death sentence for "blasphemy" against the Prophet Muhammad.

Please pray for Asia Bibi and her family. Also, please pray for those who are risking their lives to free her.
