The President of the European Parliament has warned Pakistan that it is making a ‘big mistake’ in its treatment of Asia Bibi, a mother-of-five facing execution for blasphemy.
President Antonio Tajani raised the case against Bibi during this week’s plenary session at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, during which he called for a fair trial and urged Pakistan to end religious prejudice.
‘I ask that she is guaranteed a fair trial and to stop this discrimination and religious prejudice,’ he said.
He made further comments in answers to journalists, in which he spoke of his desire to see Bibi freed.
‘We need to save Asia Bibi. She is in prison only because she is Christian,’ said Tajani, according to Evangelical Focus.
