Qari Muhammad Salaam, who submitted the review petition, requested the court maintain the death sentence awarded to her by a trial court. Salaam had filed a case against Aasia Bibi and accused her of blasphemy.

The court said that the petitioner’s lawyer could not prove anything wrong with the court verdict.

Please pray that Aasia and her family will now be reunited, be relocated to a place of safety and enjoy the Lord’s permanent protection.

The Express Tribune reported on 25 January that Aasia’s daughters and their guardians have already migrated to Canada.
