“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.
