Italy urges Pakistan Government to drop Blasphemy case against Asia Bibi.
The Italian Government intervenes and insists on the Government of Pakistan to invalidate the Blasphemy charges against Asia Bibi. Asia Bibi was allegedly accused of committing blasphemy in a consequence to which she received a Death sentence from a local court. An appeal against the death sentence was filed, since then she has been waiting long behind the bars. The Italian Government advocates that her death sentence be terminated.
This incitement from the Italian Government comes at a time, when a Christian girl Rimsha Masih had already been acquitted of Blasphemy charges few months earlier.
