  1. Pakistan should not execute Aasia Bibi as she is also a citizen of Pakistan and if she pleads herself to be innocent, people should believe her. Only Allah has the right to punish someone and if she did insult the Holy Prophet, that is her opinion and Allah will decide her fate. However, it is wrong to accuse someone since there is no evidence to make a final statement against her. Extremists in Pakistan should not be manipulating the court or government since it is supposed to bring justice and not inquality. Additionally, Allah has also said in the Qur’an that true believers are those who forgive, have control over anger and show mercy.
