Aasia Bibi Still Incarcerated

Over a week after the Pakistan Supreme Court upheld the acquittal of Aasia Bibi on blasphemy charges, she remains confined in a locked room and is being prevented from leaving Pakistan to join her daughters in Canada, where they have been granted asylum.

Quoting Aman Ullah, who spoke to Aasia Bibi by telephone yesterday, Aljazeera reported that she is frustrated and frightened, uncertain of when she will be able to leave Pakistan.

“The door opens at food time only,” said Ullah, and she is allowed to make phone calls in the morning and again at night. He said she usually calls her daughters.

Bibi’s husband is with her, he said.

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