Ooberfuse an English Christian music band has created a song titled, “Free Asia Bibi” in order to urge for her release from prison. The British band has urged the authorities to free her immediately, by singing “free her now.”
The song Free Asia Bibi is from the album Seventh Wave, whereas the song feature Wizard MC also.
50-year-old, Asia Bibi has been on death row since she was convicted of committing blasphemy. She was accused of committing blasphemy in June 2009 by her fellow-workers. In 2010, Session’s Court in District Nankana, ruled capital punishment for Asia Bibi. Her defence lawyers filed an appeal against the decision while she remained in police custody since then. However, on July 22, the Supreme Court of Pakistan temporarily halted her execution, citing a lack of evidence against her.
Meanwhile, Asia Bibi is kept imprisoned in Multan jail in a dingy small cell which has no window. The confinement cell where Asia Bibi is kept is highly secured due to fear that anyone of the inmates or even the policemen on duty may try to kill her. There are threats to her life, as she was able to win the Apex court’s decision to halt her death sentence. “She could be killed by any inmate or even a prison guard, so we have to be careful,” a prison official said. The authorities are “concerned for her life,” another official said.
