Why is it every time I write something with passion on the petition site page comments, it will not then come up on the correct page to verify my signature (the sign page)? It comes up with a petition I would have signed previously.....????
This has happened to me more than a few times in the last weeks....all I can do is backtrack and sign again with no comment, because then it will come up with the correct petition........This frustration is sort of like an incorrect feedback loop...... Is someone censoring our comments? (I asked why the Pope, who is supposed to be the spiritual head of the Christian church, does not do anything?)
Anyway, why isn't there an international outcry about this poor woman? What kind of protection can she apply for? Why don't the christian churches do anything to save her? This is barbarism at it's worse!! Our government should step in and offer her amnesty.....how is it that this isn't front page news!?

This is terrible! These people are barbaric! I absolutely support her right to be a Christian as I support the rights of Pakistanis in the UK to practice their faith peacefully and without interference from anyone else! Has there been/is there international support from the Pakistanis in other countries who are free to practice Islam where they find themselves for Asia Bibi??

I praise Mrs. Bibi courage stand, and I hope Mrs Bibi released as soon as possible.

But this is VERY IMPORTANT:
Even before her release, she must be given a security escort, transfered immediately, with her family, to a Western country, and receive asylum there, or in another one, along with his husband and children.
It is because, even if the Court declare her innocent, from now on, her life, and the life of her husband and childs, will be in a permanent and great danger, as there are now many muslims in Pakistan that consider her guilty anyway, and so are looking for her death.
Just read the news about the murder of other Pakistani Christian acused of blasphemy and recently acquited by the Court.
And also remember Salman Rushdie.


Indeed, it baffles me some quite intriguing questions that inevitably arise when reading the news and then comparing statistically the behavior of the average follower of the several main world religions, just like the following ones:

Why do many muslims demand freedom to practice their faith from non-muslims countries, when there are several restrictions, including legal ones, to freedom of faith of other religions in muslim countries?

Why do many muslims demand permission to build their mosques freely all over christians countries, while muslim governments restrict and, in case of Saudi Arabia, forbid terminantly construction of churches, synagogues, buddhist or hindu or sikh temples in their countries?

Why do many muslims riot frequently about many things?
Even taking into consideration the effects of misunderstandings and prejudices from both parties, why do many muslims behave more agressively toward non-muslims than people of other religions behave toward muslims?

Why is it that there are practically no muslims being seen demonstrating in defense of non-muslims, while there are quite a number of demonstrations by christians defending muslims?

Why do muslims give few donations and help to christians afflicted by natural disasters, while christians seem always ready to help muslims in hardship?
Sometimes it seems that christian countries help muslims in need more even than muslim countries, even though there are several very oil rich muslim countries.

Why do many muslims men treat their women harshly? Is it a question of culture?
Let us see honor killing, by instance. There are several muslim countries where honor killing is not a common practise. On the other hand, there are muslims of different countries, arabs and non-arabs alike, from the Middle East and of Indian subcontinent origin equally, practising honor killing that, in some muslim countries, got a very light punishment from both their society and their government justice system.


I know that there are radical types in any religion, and I do know that the majority of muslims would not persecute anyone, and rather live in peace and harmony, because I knew personally some muslims - nice people, by the way.
But it seems that nobody, muslim or non-muslim alike, has logical and coherent answers for the questions above, not even the big western media.
Can't we coexist peacefully?
Are muslims and non-muslims then separated by a large gulf of discord, and condemned to live in permanent separation?
Can't we be friends?

Signed as No457... Why only so little signatures here?! Petition about releasing Asztiani accused for adultery got some thousands signatures! Why don't we defend so effectively a woman accused because of her Christian views?!

There's a letter you can send to president of Pakistan. Mail to publicmail@president.gov.pk and salviamoasiabibi@asianews.it . Only mass pressure from international public can change Asia's and other Christians situation. PLEASE ACT !!!


To Mr Asif Ali Zardari,

The President of Pakistan



Mr. President,

Asia Bibiís death sentence is not just a sentence, it is a State crime. Therefore I hope you will not permit that, not only because of your sense of Justice but also because it is badly affecting the reputation of your country.

Please intervene as soon as possible to reduce the pains Asia Bibi and her family are suffering. Moreover the constant deliberate persecution of Pakistani Christians through the law on blasphemy is offending the Almighty God more than any human being.

Sincerely
