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



New threats against the life of Asia Bibi.

Key quote:

The fear spread among Christians in Pakistan when news appeared in section of press to hang Asia Bibi by group of Muslim followers of Mumtaz Qadri who was hanged in Rawalpindi Jail on February 20, 2016, on murdering Punjab Governor Salman Taseer on seeking clemency for Christian mother Asia Bibi sentenced to death on accusations of blasphemy.

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.
