PAKISTAN: A U.S. official involved in religious freedom issues told me Tuesday he was “not sure” whether the United States was making any efforts to offer asylum to Asia Bibi, the Christian mother exonerated of blasphemy charges two weeks ago by Pakistan’s Supreme Court but prohibited from leaving the country. Three British imams joined calls for the UK to offer asylum, as rumors swirl this week of her impending release.
