Asia Bibi, a Christian woman who was acquitted by the Supreme Court in a blasphemy case has left Pakistan for Canada, as her travel documents were made one month ago. Asia Bibi’s arrival in Canada was confirmed by her lawyer Saif Ul Malook.
The Supreme Court on October 31, 2018 acquitted Asia Bibi, a Christian woman sentenced to death over blasphemy allegations. She had remained in prison as the Supreme Court’s decision triggered protests in the country from religious groups led by the Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan.
Protesters were called off when the government agreed to impose a travel ban on Asia Bibi and not to challenge a review appeal against the verdict.
