Husband of Pakistan Blasphemy Case Woman Pleads for Asylum in U.S., Canada or U.K.
The husband of a Pakistani Christian woman at the center of a divisive blasphemy case has pleaded for sanctuary in the U.S., Canada or the U.K, saying he fears for his family’s safety.
Asia Bibi’s husband Ashiq Masih made his plea a day after he criticised a government deal with hardline Islamists that left her in legal limbo.
Bibi — who had been on death row since 2010 on blasphemy charges — was acquitted by the Supreme Court on Wednesday after the case was thrown out on the basis of “flimsy evidence.” That set off large street protests by ultra-conservative Islamists who convulsed Pakistan for three days, blocking roads and disrupting traffic.
