Asia Bibi, has been in detention since 2009. She was charged of Blasphemy allegations, and subsequently, received a death sentence in November, 2010. Two eminent leaders of Pakistan lost their lives in connection to the Asia Bibi case. Salman Taseer and Shahbaz Bhatti were assassinated on account of supporting Asia Bibi.

Asia Bibi, on the other hand has lodged an appeal to the High Court, against the death sentence, but the process, in its absoluteness is a lengthy one. The case being hypersensitive its essentiality, withstands noticeable delay at the moment.

This case has been minutely, screened by the CLASS, Mr. Chaudhry, the defense lawyer of Asia Bibi has been provided with substantial assistance by the CLASS. This issue is also being set forth on international forums. What’s more, CLASS raising the matter with the EU leaders.

Despite being severely distressed and afflicted, Asia Bibi stands firm in her Christian Faith as her opportunity remains very much vague.
