It comes after former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, and other politicians, urged the government to help her.

  1. She deserve asylum. We all know if she remained in Pakistan some fanatic will kill her. And there are a lot of them there.
    I wish her and her family peace and security.

  2. I hope that poor woman is already safely out of Pakistan, out of reach of those barbaric and primitives who are a danger to the world, but seem to have a great deal of influence in that country. It’s again an example of someone having to leave a Muslim country to ensure ‘Compassionate Living’.
