Full Story: (Here, here and Here)
Asia Bibi, was just replying to Muslim women who were commenting on Christianity and calling Christians infidel while she opposed and called Islam a fake religion on which she was beaten and charged under blasphemy law subject to death penalty according to Pakistan Penal Code on June 19, 2009, in village Ittanwali, district Nankana Sahib, which was sub-district of Seikhupura in Punjab province of Pakistan.
Actually many versions, only with slight variations, were reported. What happened was that when Muslim women were abusing Christianity and Jesus, she, Asia Bibi, mother of five children, replied, "How different your Mohammad and Islam were". This was sufficient for them to persecute and arrest her. Now lets see how much those Muslims, who are trying to show Islam means justice, will stand up against this kind. Or better to say, try to imagine the instantaneous and reflexive frenzied reaction from Islam world to perceived, even slightest, insult to their religion in any form! Compare that to near absence of any concern in Islamic world with regard to this incident. Islamic world and Muslims lack conscience; in fact Koran transforms them (Muslims) in to such monsters and zombies. Anyway this case of Asia Bibi, is not the first one and will not be the last one.
All this was more ridiculous because she was never even allowed to defend herself in the court for entire full year during which she was lodged in prison, here:
SHEIKHUPURA, Pakistan, November 17 (CDN) ---Ashiq Masih, with his stooped posture, frail body and dull yellow eyes, stands in a small compartment in the Sheikhupura District Jail with his three daughters – Sidra, Eesha and Eeshum. The girls are weeping silently.
On the other side of a metal grille is Asia Noreen, the birth mother of two of the girls and the first woman in Pakistan to receive the death sentence on charges of blaspheming Islam’s prophet. Eeshum, 12-years-old and mentally disabled, whines like a baby for her mother, asking her when she will be back.
“I don’t know why – when I walked into court that day, I just knew,” she said, tears returning to her eyes and her voice shaking. “And when the judge announced my death sentence, I broke down crying and screaming. In the entire year that I have spent in this jail, I have not been asked even once for my statement in court. Not by the lawyers and not by the judge. After this, I have lost hope in any kind of justice being given to me.”
When I say Islam and Muslims lack feelings of humanity, I mean it. May God save this world from these beasts of Islam.
