Asia Bibi’s youngest daughter has appealed to Pakistan’s Prime Minister to let her mother leave the country, according to press reports. She’s encouraged Asia to have faith that God will bring her out.
Asia Bibi, who has been declared not guilty of blasphemy charges by Pakistan’s Supreme Court, is still reportedly unable to leave the country. Release sources say she is in good health, contrary to other reports.
She is said to be in protective custody to keep her safe from vigilantes as she endures an agonising wait to fly to freedom.
According to the The Mail on Sunday, Asia’s daughter Eisham has appealed to Pakistan’s prime minister to let her mother leave the country.
Eisham, who’s 18, has encouraged her mother to continue to have faith that God will bring her out to safety.
The MoS says Eisham is able to call Asia from Canada where her daughter now lives with her 21-year-old sister Esha.
Eisham said she missed her mother and thought about her all the time. ‘I say to her: “Have faith in God, because if God can release you from jail, God can release you from where you are now. He will bring you out.”‘
It has been nine years since Eisham was last able to hug her mother. She has appealed to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan to allow her to leave the country. She hopes Asia will one day be able to join her daughters in Canada.
Asia Bibi is innocent of blasphemy and has been acquitted – twice – by the highest court in the land. With militants still calling for her death, Release International believes she will never be safe in Pakistan and must be allowed to leave.
