#ShortNews: Asia Bibi arrives in Canada. Christians: “Justice has been dispensed”

Asia Bibi, the woman unjustly sentenced to death for blasphemy and acquitted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan on 31 October 2018, has arrived in Canada, where she has reunited with her family. This was stated by sources of the Pakistan Foreign Ministry and confirmed by her lawyer Saiful Malook.

In Pakistan the news generated favourable comments among Christians. Bishop Samson Shukardin, at the head of the diocese of Hyderabad, speaking to Fides, states: “It is an important decision of the government to let her leave the country, it is also an act of justice towards a woman who suffered great injustice and suffering for a decade. In fact Asia was declared innocent and freed by the Supreme Court of Pakistan and has every right to go wherever she wants, for her protection, security and future life”.
