How many of you are aware of the situation that's happening with Asia Bibi in Pakistan? Excellent discussion about the situation, I suggest you carefully listen to the entire interview, Nina Shea discussion with Raymond Arroyo Her lawyer has fled to the Netherlands. Something really notable in that video that I thought jumped out, the lawyer Saiful Mulook said: "As for as myself is concerned, I being a muslim, it was really very very difficult to us to make the people understanding, that why I'm defending a Christian woman..." The Pakistani muslims want her dead, and it's very likely she won't survive. Just a few highlights from the transcript: Arroyo: "Now, her lawyer is on the run. Can he really defend her from the Netherlands? When we should say, the Supreme Court has a petition to review the case before it, might the overturning of this case get overturned?" Shea: "It's quite possible, anything could happen, because as you said, the justice is on the line now, his life is on the line, and there's an ever expanding circle of people: the jailer who lets her out, the driver who drives her to the airport, any of those people could be killed, they have been threatened, anybody who facilitates her escape... And this has happened, there have been acquitted defendants murdered on the steps of the Supreme Court in Pakistan, judges, lawyers killed; and human rights lawyers and journalists are also very much a targeted group over there." Arroyo: "Give me you sense about these blasphemy laws, we have talked about these in the past... and in Pakistan, from 1986 just to give people some historical perspective, General Zia added a new clause, that mandated the death penalty for anyone who blasphemed the prophet. Now, between 1927 and 1986 there were seven cases. In 2015 alone, it reached 1300 cases, plus. What is happening, and what can we in the West do about it?" Shea: "Well, these kinds of laws - and by the way, I feel the same way about the hate speech laws, and they are proxies in Europe now for Muslim blasphemy laws - "
