Canadian PM Trudeau says in talks with Pakistan over Asia Bibi

The UK has the moral responsibility to offer asylum for Pakistani Christian woman Asia Bibi who recently acquitted of blasphemy, said British Conservative MP Rehman Chisti.

Dr Muhammad Faisal tweeted that the Canadian foreign minister during the phone call "appreciated Supreme Court's courageous decision" acquitting Bibi and the prime minister's "positive speech".

"We urge the Government of Pakistan to secure Bibi's and her family's safe exit from the country", said Paul Coleman, executive director of ADF International, the human rights organisation that advocates for religious freedom and that has organised the letter.

Canada is also considering granting the family asylum, with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier describing the matter as a "delicate domestic" issue, adding that "Canada is a welcoming country".

"We are in discussions with the Pakistani government", Trudeau said in an interview with Agence France Presse in Paris, where he attended a ceremony marking the end of World War One.

Following Ms Bibi's release on the 7th November, crowds took to the streets in cities across Pakistan baying for her death.

More than 1,300 people have been charged in the last 30 years and many of them have been murdered before their trial is even complete.

The Netherlands offered temporary asylum to Bibi's lawyer, Saiful Malook, after he faced death threats.

It stems from an incident in 2009 when Bibi was asked to fetch water while out working in the fields.

A deal with Islamist parties ended three days of protests up and down the country included a concession to begin court proceedings that would put Asia Bibi on the country's no-fly list. The neighbors claimed later that Bibi had committed blasphemy by insulting the prophet Mohammed.
