9-years later, Asia bibi is finally free today. The court acquitted her of all the blasphemy allegations made at her in 2010. Asia Bibi’s case was not unnoticed – the allegations faced by Asia bibi resulted in the assassination of Salman Taseer, a liberal Pakistani politician who stood up in support of the Christian minority woman.

Mumtaz Qadri, Salman Taseer’s gunman shot the politician 28 times because he felt it was his duty to kill a man who was supporting a woman alleged of blasphemy. The charges on Asia Bibi included disrespecting Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

While a lot of havoc was caused, lives were taken and justice was delayed, Asia Bibi is finally a free woman, but the country is now suffering in the hands of religious parties.

Religious Parties All Over the Country are Protesting Against the Courts Which Acquitted Asia Bibi

From burning tires to blocking the roads and sitting outside the courts to harassing the reporters, the religious parties such as TLP are causing havoc all over the country. The religious parties believe Asia bibi is guilty and they are on the roads, ruining the country, demanding for justice.

Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Pindi and Motorway are the most effected areas at the moment.

This is Happening in Lahore

And Here’s One from Islamabad

Khadim Rizvi, the Chairman of Tehreek-i-Labaik, Orchestrated a Sit-In Outside Punjab Assembly

For All the Right Reasons, The Media Currently Is Not Covering The Protests Happening Across the Country

A good reason because it would just add fuel to the current situation and they won’t stop.

All the locals are advised to stay indoors till the situation mediates. Using public transport must be avoided at all costs.

The reason behind these protests is pretty clear – the Islamic political parties are not in favor of this verdict and are pressurizing the courts and the government to do something about it.

For now, Asia bibi walks a free woman, and this itself is a happy news. On the other hand, please stay indoors and stay safe.
