Several thousand protesters hit the streets of Pakistan calling for the Christian woman accused of insulting Islam be put to death. Asia Bibi would become the first person executed for blasphemy if her appeal fails.

The Pakistani city of Lahore was the center of Friday’s protests, which were organized by the anti-blasphemy party Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP). Demonstrations also took place in a number of other cities across the country, including Karachi and Rawalpindi.

The rallies came after Pakistan's Supreme Court heard the final appeal of Bibi, a Christian laborer accused of blasphemy against the Prophet Mohammed in 2009 by Muslim women she was working with in a field.

According to Bibi's autobiography ‘Blasphemy: A Memoir: Sentenced to Death Over a Cup of Water’ the incident began when she went to retrieve a cup of water from a well during a hot day of fruit picking.

When a Muslim woman nearby saw her doing so she shouted, “Don't drink that water, it's haram (forbidden)!” She then turned to the other women in the field, telling them that Bibi had dirtied the water in the well by drinking from their cup.

“Now the water is unclear and we can't drink it! Because of her!” the woman said. Several women called Bibi a “filthy Christian” and told her to convert to Islam.

“I’m not going to convert. I believe in my religion and in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of mankind. What did your Prophet Mohammed ever do to save mankind? And why should it be me that converts instead of you?” Bibi said.

At that point, one woman spat on her while another shoved her. Days later, she was accused of blasphemy.

Friday’s protests came despite the court saying it had reached a judgment at a hearing on Monday, but that it would not be released immediately for “reasons to be recorded later.” It also said that it had ruled on a petition that would put Bibi on the no-fly list if released, but did not publish that judgment either.

Bibi's case has prompted international calls for her release, with Pope Benedict XVI joining in the calls in 2010. Pope Francis met with Bibi's daughter in 2015.

Although Pakistan's law takes the accusation of blasphemy very seriously and people have been sentenced to death, no one has ever actually been executed.

There is zero coverage on any media outlet.
nor is anyone else talking about it.

Thus, either the news is exaggerated or the government is trying to keep it cool and under control.

Not to deny the fact, there indeed are some right wing goons who will do all sorts of drama
not because they are interested in this woman's fate, but because they will get good TV coverage
nationally and internationally.

TLP is indeed an extremist party and is a reflection of religious transformation of Pakistan.
This version of Islam, which sprouted in Pakistan was unknown before 9-11 and TLP was noticed after the defeat of TTP.
They are a mischief (fitna). Least Pakistan can afford is religious extremism in streets and mafias dictating state.

Because there is No supremacy of Law in Pakistan
Mafiaism has become a popular culture in Pakistan, when Mafiaism become wide spread, concept of nationhood is over, what is left behind is BIGOTS talking about nationhood and religon.

Lately a criminal called Faisal Reza Abidi is arrested for obvious contempt of chief justice but today his mafia is out demanding state his release.
I bet soon this lunatic will be freed by his comrades.

Mafiasm is a way of Life imposed as cultural Import from neighbours left and right.

This spineless government cobbled together by the Mafia will fall flat on its face.
