Million signatures sought for Pakistani mom facing death for talking about Jesus

“Our Christ sacrificed His life on the cross for our sins. … Our Christ is alive,” those are the words that Asia Bibi, a wife and mother, used to defend her faith against mocking co-workers who tried to make her convert to Islam.

She was later convicted of blasphemy and sentenced to death. She now awaits her fate in a Pakistani prison.

In Pakistan, more than 150,000 Christians have signed a petition demanding justice for persecution victims, including Asia Bibi. However, Voice of the Martyrs, an advocacy group for persecuted Christians hopes to get 1 million signatures, which it will deliver to Pakistan officials.

she has done the great job that she pass the good news of jesus christ who is only the saviour and who has given a life to forgiving our sins because we already born on sin and our life is full of sins so when does the human being of this earth understand and agree to follow the commandment of jesus christ the king of heaven.

Hopefully they will be successful in preventing her death. It’s not easy being a Christian in a Muslim country—it can be down right deadly.

I trully support this mother,citizen in proclaiming Jesus,Christ our Lord as the Saviour. I would love to add my name to the petition to save her life. What a privilege we as American’s have to publicly declare our faith in God, Jesus Christ Ala, Jehovah of whomever we believe in as the superior being. The best wishes goes out to this individual and all who have the courage to stand up for what they believe in.

The Pakistani government should leave the woman to her faith because what she is proffessing is not in any way inimical to the running of the government of Pakistan or else the FIRE of God is iminent

this lady spoke pure truth. JESUS is alive an will come back for his children. no one has the right to kill this lady for telling the truth. people can believe what they want an have the right to do that. but dont kill this lady for speaking out an up for my SAVIOR n hers. GODS word does say some will die in his HOLY NAME. I pray GOD will intervein an save this lady from death for her an her children. I pray she stands her ground an tells the world about JESUS as we all christians should do. she is a awesome example of GODS true children. let her go.

All Christans have a moral obligation to bear witness to the truth. To proclaim that Jesus is alive, because there is no other.
