The Supreme Court of Pakistan has just overturned Christian mom Asia Bibi’s death sentence.
The court just issued its decision in her appeal, overturning her blasphemy conviction and sentence of execution by hanging.
This is a massive victory for this Christian mother of 5, who since 2009 has been imprisoned because of her faith. She was arrested on false accusations of blasphemy, because she (who as a Christian is considered unclean) offered a Muslim co-worker a cup of water.
For years, we have been aggressively advocating across the globe for her freedom – through our office on the ground in Pakistan (where we have successfully defended numerous Christians in court), at the U.N., and on Capitol Hill.
