26 Jan 2019
Islamabad: January 26, 2019. (PCP) The Supreme Court of Pakistan have fixed January 29, 2019, to hear Review Petition on Asia Bibi case filed by one Muslim extremist group called TLP who opposed release of Asia Bibi from Multan Jail.
According to records available on review petitions, the SCP have always maintained its decisions and turning down such petition but Asia Bibi case may have same results.
It may be noted that last week when Khadim Hussain Rizvi was presented before anti-terrorism court then workers of his party have thrown rose petals on road leading to court building. The Muslim cleric Rizvi and his colleagues have issued Fatwa to kill judges who ordered release of Asia Bibi and urged upon soldiers to do mutiny to over throw present Army Chief General Bajwa on which government took action and arrested Rizvi and hundreds of his supporters from different cities of Punjab.
Its expected that Advocate Saif Ul Malook who won case of Asia Bibi in Supreme Court of Pakistan will be back to attend Review Petition proceedings according to his statement made from EU where he settled for safety of his life.
Mr. Malook have asked for adequate security from Imran Khan government in Islamabad as he lands back on proceedings of review petition but still situation is not clear.
Asia Bibi was taken to any disclosed location by agents of ISI who took her from Multan Jail on her release on September 30, 2018. After that no one knows that in what conditions Asia Bibi is kept.
