Christian woman sentenced to death in Pakistan 'for blasphemy' - Telegraph
This woman and her family would be a worthy candidate for asylum in Ireland(although the Indians really should be taking her), we could swap them for that Lad and his dependents from the Congo who scammed us for €70k in social welfare payments, the lad who we now are putting up in prison at more cost to the taxpayer.Asia Bibi, a 45-year-old mother-of-five, denies blasphemy and told investigators that she was being persecuted for her faith in a country where Christians face routine harassment and discrimination
"I haven't told two of my younger daughters about the court's decision," he said. "They asked me many times about their mother but I can't get the courage to tell them that the judge has sentenced their mother to capital punishment for a crime she never committed." Mrs Bibi has been held in prison since June last year.
The court heard she had been working as a farmhand in fields with other women, when she was asked to fetch drinking water.
