Aasia Bibi has not left Pakistan: FO

As per the Punjab government’s report private and public property worth Rs260 million was damaged during the sit-ins

A spokesman for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in an email Monday that Canada is in talks with Pakistan about Bibi.

"We are in discussions with the Pakistani government", Trudeau said in an interview with AFP in Paris, where he was attending a peace conference organised by French President Emmanuel Macron.

The mother of three was eventually set free, following years in jail, after the Pakistani Supreme Court overturned the conviction last month.

Bibi's husband, Ashiq Masih, has appealed for help to Britain, Canada, Italy and the United States.

She has since been flown to a "safe place" in the country as several governments have offered to grant her family asylum.

After SC's October 31 judgement that acquitted Aasia Bibi, a Christian woman, in a blasphemy case, TLP launched a countrywide protest, bringing several cities to a standstill for almost three days.

Bibi's ordeal dates back to 2009 when she went to fetch water for herself and fellow farmworkers.

Blasphemy is a highly charged issue in Pakistan, where mere allegations or accusations that someone had insulted the Prophet Mohammed can incite mobs into a frenzy of violence.

The government and the protesters from different religious groups, led by Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), reached an agreement two days later on Friday, November 2.

Bibi was put on death row for blasphemy in Pakistan nearly ten years ago, following allegations by Muslim women she worked with that she insulted Prophet Mohammed.

Approximately 40 people are believed to be on death row or serving a life sentence in Pakistan for blasphemy, according to a 2018 report by the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. In 2011, the governor of Punjab province was killed by his own guard after he defended Bibi and criticized the blasphemy law.

Since her acquittal and release, she has been threatened amid widespread protests that accelerated her departure from a Lahore prison and her transfer to Islamabad on Wednesday. A year later, Shahbaz Bhatti, the minister for minorities and a Christian, was shot and killed.
