Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced that Asia Bibi, the Christian woman whose death sentence for blasphemy against Islam was overturned, will leave the Muslim nation in two weeks and be reunited with her family, according to WorldNetDaily (WND).
But WND says Jihad Watch Director Robert Spencer cautions that supporters who followed Bibi’s ordeal for the past nine years should hold their applause.
“Why is Khan making this announcement now?” he asked. “Why not in two weeks, after she is safely out of the country? Is he giving the furious Muslim mobs who have been baying for her blood and hunting house to house for her time to mobilize and renew their efforts to find and murder her?
“Why would he make this announcement otherwise, instead of secreting this poor woman out of the country without saying a word until the mission was completed?”
WND stated last month that contrary to the reported claim of her lawyer that she was safely reunited with her family in Canada after her conviction was overturned last October and reaffirmed in January, Bibi remained in protective custody in the Muslim nation and was said to be “very unwell.”
WND said authorities have been protecting her from the threats of radical Muslims who immediately took to the streets in protest of the October decision. Some searched house to house to carry out what they viewed as unfulfilled justice under Islamic law.
The review in January was part of a deal the government struck with the Tehreek-e-Labbaik party, whose members sought to kill her.
