A PAKISTANI court has sentenced to death a Christian mother-of-five for blasphemy, the first such conviction of a woman and sparking protests from rights groups overnight. Asia Bibi, 45, was sentenced on Tuesday by a local court in Nankana district in Pakistan’s central province Punjab, about 75km west of the country’s cultural capital of Lahore.
Pakistan has yet to execute anyone for blasphemy, but the case spotlights the Muslim country’s controversial laws on the subject which rights activists say encourages Islamist extremism in a nation wracked by Taliban attacks.
Asia’s case dates back to June 2009 when she was asked to fetch water while out working in the fields.
But a group of Muslim women labourers objected, saying that as a non-Muslim, she should not touch the water bowl.
A few days later the women went to a local cleric and alleged that Asia made made derogatory remarks about the Prophet Mohammed.
The cleric went to local police, who opened an investigation.
She was arrested in Ittanwalai village and prosecuted under Section 295 C of the Pakistan Penal Code, which carries the death penalty.
Sentencing her to hang, Judge Naveed Iqbal “totally ruled out” any chance that Asia was falsely implicated and said there were “no mitigating circumstances”, according to a copy of the verdict seen by Agence-France Presse.

This is how it is done: We call our Congressperson and Senators and ask them to call Secretary Clinton and ask her what she’s doing to get Ms. Bibi pardoned or exiled to the US. I am. Will you too?
Then, after we have done that, we ask other people to do that, and help them with the process if useful, like by helping them figure out who our Congressman is and Senators are and their phone number. ( we have provided information below to help).
If Secretary Clinton gets enough calls with enough urgency from enough elected officials… there’s a way, and she’ll find it. Don’t argue. Just ask. Call your federal legislators and ask them to ask her.
That actually works. Few things are as powerful as voters calling our elected officials with a specific request.
This case is too tragic for words. Let’s bring about a happy ending for Ms. Bibi and her children. Fast. Call your Representative and Senators and ask.
CONTACT INFO, Ask your Represenative and Senators “WHAT is Secretary of State Clinton doing about the Asia Bibi case?”
