Turmoil Around Asia Bibi’s Release Reveals Depth of Muslim Extremism
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan is being called out for his fear of the Muslim extremists in Pakistan who are pressuring him not to let Asia Bibi leave the country.
The World View spoke to Wilson Chowdhry of the British Pakistani Christian Association about the situation.
CHOWDHRY: “At any point in time when Asia Bibi is set free, which we believe will happen, because she is innocent and has been proven so, by the most senior High Supreme Court judges in the country, there is going to be a fury and a backlash that will affect the whole nation. The longer Imran Khan delays that process, the worse the situation will get.”
Chowdhry said Bibi’s case has revealed to the world just how much the Christians suffer in Pakistan.
CHOWDHRY: “They’ve finally realized that the minorities in Pakistan do suffer greatly. The zealots or extremists have illustrated how venomous they can be to minority individuals, especially those who are caught in the blasphemy web of Pakistan, laws that persecute and discriminate minorities and have been used as a tool to do so.”
