European Union: “Asia Bibi is in prison only because she is a Christian”

Asia Bibi, the Christian woman accused of blasphemy imprisoned in Pakistan since 2009.

The chair of the European Parliament clearly expressed his support for Asia Bibi, the Christian woman sentenced to death in Pakistan accused of insulting Islam.



“We need to save Asia Bibi. She is in prison only because she is Christian”, the President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani said in answers to journalists.

“This is a big mistake, it is against human rights. We want to defend human rights everywhere. For this, we need to save Asia Bibi”, he added.



 



EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: RELIGIOUS PREJUDICE MUST BE AVOIDED



Speaking during the European Parliament session of October 24, Tajani denounced the case, saying: “After being attacked and denounced for blasphemy, Asia Bibi now risks to be hanged. I call on the Pakistani authorities to guarantee that she receives a fair trial, and any form of discrimination or religious prejudice are avoided”.







IMPRISONED SINCE 2010



Asia Bibi has been imprisoned since 2010. She appealed her case, and her lawyers and supporters hope she will be released soon. Dozens of organisations have campaigned for her in the last years.



“She always has said that Jesus is her life and she is living in the name of Jesus, and [trusting] that Jesus will help her”, Asia’s husband Ashiq Bibi told Premier in a visit to the UK raise awareness about the case. “We are suffering without Asia because she is the mother, she is the wife. As the husband, I am missing Asia and the daughters are also missing Asia”.
