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.

For the past couple years, Compendius has written about the persecution and killing of Christians in select parts of the world. As Christians we must all embrace each others’ struggle and pray and proactively work to improve things for our brothers and sisters in the faith worldwide.
The terrorist group Boko Haram has been slaughtering Christians in Nigeria in big numbers, in conduct that must desist. Nigeria is half Christian and half Muslim. According to the Baptist Press, “The publicly reported Christian casualties in Nigeria last year were greater than the Christian casualties of Pakistan, Syria, Kenya and Egypt combined. In fact, Nigeria alone accounted for almost 70 percent of Christians killed globally. This makes Nigeria the most lethal country for Christians by a huge margin.”
