Christian Woman Acquitted Of Blasphemy Leaves Pakistan
Asia Bibi has left Pakistan for Canada after spending eight years on death row for a blasphemy conviction. Her 2010 death sentence was overturned by the Supreme Court in October 2018, sparking nationwide protest and death threats. Bibi, a Roman Catholic, was accused by Muslim villagers in Ittanwala of blasphemy following an altercation with a fellow farm worker. The Supreme Court said there was no evidence to support the accusations.
