Pakistani Christian in final court appeal against blasphemy execution
Pakistan’s Supreme Court will begin hearing the final appeal Monday of a Christian mother on death row for blasphemy, a notorious case which could see her become the first to be executed under the controversial laws.
Asia Bibi, a mother of five, has been on death row since 2010, when Pope Benedict XVI joined in international calls for her release.
In 2015 her daughter met with Pope Francis, who as the head of the Catholic Church offered prayers for her mother.
It was not clear if the three-judge Supreme Court bench would issue their ruling Monday. If they uphold Bibi’s conviction, her only recourse will be a direct appeal to the president for clemency.
Hardliners in Pakistan regularly call for her execution, including in Islamabad’s Red Mosque. One of the most vocal groups, the Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP), has vowed to attend the hearing.
