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.

Iranian Christian pastor, Youcef Nadarkhani, has been sentenced to death, for being a preacher of the gospel living in Iran. Nadarkhani has been charged with apostasy by the Muslim state, who have been placed under a significant amount of world scrutiny for this decision, drawing the condemnation of a number of nations. Nadarkhani has been given the option of recanting his Christian faith or being hanged.
He has refused to renounce his faith and the Iranian government has not called off the execution. A person should be able to freely practice their faith without harm or retribution. Here’s hoping the Iranian government will do the right thing, drop the charges and not execute pastor Nadarkhani. God bless you and your family, Youcef.
