The Voice of the Martyrs launches petition for Asia Bibi


The Voice of the Martyrs USA has launched a web campaign calling for the release of Asia Bibi.

Asia Bibi, a Pakistani woman, was arrested in June 2009 on charges of blasphemy. After a lengthy trial, Asia was sentenced to death. The ruling has been appealed, but she remains in prison.

Visit the Call for Mercy website to fill in the petition. VOM-USA will deliver the petition and the list of signers to the Pakistani Embassy in Washington DC.

The petition reads, “I, the undersigned, respectfully request the immediate release of Asia Bibi from prison in Pakistan and the dismissal of her blasphemy conviction and death sentence. We ask that you have mercy on our Christian sister. Please allow this wife and mother to be set free and to be reunited with her husband and children.”

As of July 25, 2011 there were over 186,500 signatures on the petition.

Since her arrest, VOM has supported Asia and her family. Join with us by signing and sharing the petition at www.CallForMercy.com!
