Family of Christian woman sentenced to death for offending satanic death cult idol Mohammed await appeal ruling

Eisham Ashiq was just nine years old when she witnessed her mother Asia Bibi being beaten bloodied by an angry mob, accusing the 44-year-old Christian mother-of-five of insulting the Prophet Mohammed.

Ms Bibi, now 53, was convicted of blasphemy in 2010, a crime which carries a death sentence in Muslim-majority Pakistan, and she has been in solitary confinement on death row ever since.

This week, the Supreme Court reached a decision on Ms Bibi’s final appeal, and the family are now waiting anxiously for the announcement of their ruling, which will seal her fate.
