Free At Last- Asia Bibi
“I was going to die because of a glass of water.” After drinking water from the same glass as Muslim women, Asia Bibi, a Christian woman, was sentenced to death by the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in 2010 on charges of blasphemy. Bibi’s case polarized all of Pakistan and garnered international support from politicians, journalists, and countless individuals who fought for her freedom, which would not come for nine long years, all while Bibi suffered in prison. Now a political exile, Bibi returned to her family, but she would never be allowed to return to her homeland. Asia Bibi’s is the story of a woman who refused to denounce her faith and became the global symbol of the fight against religious extremism.
