Absolute lunacy in Pakistan where mobs are protesting the overturning of a death sentence for Asia Bibi, a Christain woman who has been sitting on death row for nearly a decade. She was accused of blasphemy, which is a capital offense in Pakistan. Unfortunately, it is well known that the punishable-by-death blasphemy claim is sometimes used as an easy vendetta between neighbors and the like. It doesn’t just shut a person up, it gets them thrown in jail and then executed. And it needs little evidence besides just some verbal testimony.
Mass protests broke out in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad after Pakistan’s Supreme Court acquitted Asia Bibi. Now the Supreme Court justice who overturned her death penalty is afraid for his life. The Muslim mobs are out to kill him for overturning the sentence.
A number of people who were involved in the defending Asia Bibi in the past, and in trying to change the blasphemy law, have been murdered for their position on the matter.

Elated that Asia Bibi’s trumped up blasphemy conviction has been overturned by Pakistan’s Supreme Court after 8 years of her imprisonment.

The sharia penalty for blasphemy is death, and it’s clear that the angry mob intends to execute the “justice” that Pakistan’s court thankfully refused. Asia Bibi truly deserves asylum — her life depends on it https://t.co/PY79EP60wI

So violent Pakistanis are now demanding that the judges who determined that a Christian women, Asia Bibi, should not be executed…should be executed!
What a dark ages sh*thole.https://t.co/yPWQwbZXTK
