Appeal Hearing Postponed for Christian Mother Asia Bibi

Appeal Hearing Postponed for Christian Mother Asia Bibi


The ACLJ has reported that the Pakistani Supreme Court has postponed an appeals hearing for Asia Bibi.  Asia Bibi is a Christian mother of five children who has been convicted of the crime of blasphemy and punished to death by hanging.  In 2009 Bibi found herself in an argument with a group of Muslim women with whom she was working after they accused her of insulting the prophet Mohammad.  Bibi’s family has been forced into hiding since her imprisonment after receiving death threats.

Bibi’s appeal was postponed because one of the justices had a conflict of interest and was recused.  A new hearing date has not yet been set.  Pakistan’s Chief Justice is expected to assign the case to  a new bench.  Read the full story, Breaking: Pakistan’s Supreme Court Postpones Christian Mom Asia Bibi’s Appeal Hearing, here.
