Asia Bibi has left Pakistan Arriving in Canada
Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian women who spent more than a decade on death row after being unjustly convicted of blasphemy, has left Pakistan and flown to Canada, according to reports.
Father Emmanuel Yousaf, National Director of the National Commission for Justice and Peace in Pakistan has spoken to ACN and confirmed the reports saying:
"Congratulations to ACN for all the hard work and prayers that have helped to make this day possible. We thank God that justice has prevailed and wish all the best for the family. We also thank God that the family is now being reunited at long last. We pray to God that they will have a better future and can put behind them nearly 10 years of suffering. There are so many who deserve our congratulations for all that they have done for Asia in her struggle to regain her freedom.”
The comments come amid breaking news that the Christian woman, formerly on death row for blasphemy, has finally left her native Pakistan and travelled to Canada, where her two daughters, Eisham and Esha, are now living.
