Persecuted Christian Woman Asia Bibi to Be Allowed to Leave Pakistan in Two Weeks

The Christian woman who was accused of blasphemy against Islam and kept in Pakistan will be released soon.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said this week that Asia Bibi will be allowed to leave the country “in a couple of weeks.”

Earlier this month, British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt told the U.K. Parliament that Bibi’s freedom was being negotiated.

“Making sure that she is safe and has somewhere safe to go is a top priority for this government,” Hunt told legislators. “We have had numerous discussions in private with [the] Pakistani government about how to progress on this. We are making progress, and I’m very hopeful that this will have a positive outcome.”

According to The Jerusalem Post, Bibi’s travel documents are ready for her when she is released.

“She is all set to travel abroad. We are waiting for the green signal from concerned authorities in this regard,” a senior government official told The Media Line.

Bibi had been on death row in Pakistan since 2010. She was accused of blasphemy in 2009.
