"Asia Bibi was the first woman to be sentenced to death under Pakistan's blasphemy laws. She has been on death row for nearly five years."

"A Pakistani Christian woman on death row for blasphemy has had her appeal adjourned after one of the judges refused to hear the case"

"Hundreds of riot police had been deployed around the Supreme Court in the capital, Islamabad."

"Thousands (assuming Pakistani Muslims) have protested against her and said they would kill her if she were ever released - including the imam in her own village. Her husband and four daughters live in hiding and say they have received many death threats."

"Pakistan has never executed anyone for blasphemy but some people accused of the offence have been lynched by crowds. Lawyers, judges and those seeking to reform the blasphemy laws have also been threatened, attacked or even killed."

It generally depends on what she specifically she has said that is initiated this 'blasphemy' law. Regardless of this, some countries should realise that sometimes people will say something that is against any of your beliefs and you should acknowledge that. Threatening or putting someone to prison if they ever did this clearly shows that some people just can't take criticism.

Quite frankly, we should annex them into a New British Empire and stamp out this kind of barbarism once and for all.

Those who insult the Religion of Peace must die.

Good God, someone rescue this woman and her family from that insane country.
