Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi has been on death row since 2010 simply for telling her co-workers about Jesus. For that she was accused and convicted under Pakistan’s widely misused blasphemy laws.

Her final appeal to the country’s Supreme Court is due next week.

If her death sentence is upheld by the court then her only hope would be a presidential pardon.

Asia, a wife and mother, is not alone in having suffered under these laws. Minorities such as Christians are often the target of accusations, sometimes made just to settle personal scores.
