From an undisclosed location in Canada, Asia Bibi says while she's grateful for her freedom there are others like her languishing on death row.
Bibi spoke to the Sunday Telegraph last week about her experience of spending eight years in Pakastani prisons on false blasphemy charges. Bibi was falsely accused of insulting the prophet Mohammad by two women after an argument with them. She was convicted and sentenced to death before that ruling was finally overturned by Pakistan's Supreme Court.

“There are many other cases where the accused are lying in jail for years and their decision should also be done on merit. The world should listen to them," Bibi says.
“I request the whole world to pay attention to this issue. The way any person is alleged of blasphemy without any proper investigation without any proper proof, that should be noticed. This blasphemy law should be reviewed and there should be proper investigation mechanisms while applying this law. We should not consider anyone sinful for this act without any proof.”
Bibi is a Christian, but the US State Department estimates there are 77 others in Pakistani prisons under blasphemy charges, and most of them are Muslims.
Even after Bibi's acquittal, she remained captive for another four months, before finally being allowed with her husband to join their daughters in Canada. Bibi told the newspaper she hopes to move to an undisclosed European country.
