While it is hoped that the petition signed by people from all over the world will save Asia Bibi from death by hanging on this trumped up charge, it is also intended to bring attention to the obscene Pakistan 'blasphemy law' which has been used far too long to kill innocent Christians and other minority groups in Pakistan, among other things, and to revoke this law.
- Up until now, the blasphemy law had not led to an execution of any accused or convicted. But 33 people charged with blasphemy were killed in prison by guards, or in the vicinity of the court. The latest such case involved two Protestant Christians, Pastor Emmanuel and his brother Rashid Sajjad, shot at point blank range as they left the court in Faisalabad on 19 July. However we can group these deaths with those killed in the massacres of entire villages, in Gojra, Korian, Kasur, Sangla Hill, where hundreds of houses belonging to Christians were burned and where women and children were killed or burned alive, just because one member of the village had been accused of blasphemy.
