At our reader’s request, AsiaNews has decided to launch an international petition to be sent to President Asif Zardari to save the life of Asia Bibi, who was sentenced to hanging for blasphemy. AsiaNews is also asking President Zardari to cancel or change the unjust blasphemy law, which kills many innocent victims and destroys coexistence in the country. We are asking you o support this initiative by sending a message to the following email:
salviamoasiabibi at asianews dot it
Or you can send a message directly to the Pakistani President:
publicmail at president dot gov dot pk
The letter can be like this one:
I’m aware of the sentence condemning Christian woman Asia Bibi to death by hanging after she allegedly blasphemed against the prophet. Considering that she is not a Muslim, that the sentence constitute an abuse of Human Rights and that she is the mother of three minors, I ask you to free her.
I also ask you to repeal the “Blasphemy Law” that kills peaceful people who contribute so much to society, just because their beliefs are different from the rest.
Background: Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy.
