Let my mother leave Pakistan, urges daughter of Christian woman Asia Bibi who faced the death penalty for blasphemy

The daughter of a Christian woman who faced the death penalty for blasphemy has pleaded for her mother to be allowed to leave Pakistan.

Asia Bibi was on death row for nine years after being wrongly accused by fellow villagers in Pakistan of insulting the Prophet Mohammed.

She was finally cleared by the country’s Supreme Court last year, but riots broke out following the verdict and she was taken into protective custody.
