From a secret location in Canada where she now lives with her daughters, Bibi sent a series of voice messages to British newspaper The Sunday Telegraph. In her interview, she vehemently asked the world to take notice and listen to those who, like she was, are falsely accused and convicted of violating Pakistan’s harsh blasphemy laws. Others need fair trials, as well, she said.
“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.”
The 54-year-old woman, whose formal name is Aasiya Noreen, shared specific thoughts about the misuse of Pakistan’s blasphemy law that stole almost a decade of her life.
“I request the whole world to pay attention to this issue,” she said. “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.”
