Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five, was beaten, arrested and sentenced to death for drinking from the same cup as Muslim women in Pakistan. According to published reports, Muslims consider Christians dirty and unclean “pigs” and “swine” and for Bibi to have drunk water from a well Muslim women used, is considered blasphemy punishable by death.
Protests on behalf of Asia Bibi
The only thing dirty about this incident is the way Bibi has been treated, as though she is subhuman and not deserving of rights. We are all human beings and deserved to be treated properly as such. This type of segregation and scorn has no place in society anywhere in this world.
