(From Huffington Post) Asia Bibi, a Christian woman and mother of five, has been sentenced to death for "blasphemy" in Pakistan, the first conviction of its kind for a woman, the AFP is reporting.

The case originated in Pakistan's Punjab province when a group of female Muslim laborers complained that Bibi had made derogatory comments about the Prophet Mohammed. According to CNN, the women alleged that Bibi said, "the Quran is fake and your prophet remained in bed for one month before his death because he had worms in his ears and mouth. He married Khadija just for money and after looting her kicked her out of the house." A police investigation was opened, which led to a trial and guilty verdict for Bibi. The AFP reports:

Sentencing her to hang, Judge Naveed Iqbal "totally ruled out" any chance that Asia was falsely implicated and said there were "no mitigating circumstances", according to a copy of the verdict seen by AFP.

Bibi is proclaiming her innocence and says that she is being persecuted for her Christian beliefs in a Muslim majority nation, says the Telegraph.

Human rights groups are condemning the verdict, and her husband, Ashiq Masih, told the AFP that he would appeal the verdict.

Last July, two Christian brothers were shot dead after being convicted of blasphemy, the BBC reported.

Come on Alex, where is your respect for other cultures?  You should be more understanding and tolerant.  I'm sure the girl deserves it.  She probably thinks christians are superior to musIims.  Faced with that kind of attitude, what else are they to do?  All this is perfectly justified, musIIms are just  victims you see.  This would of never happened had she shown more respect to the great religion of lslam.

right seneca?

ilearn, it's crazy to base laws on any religion.  You know this.  To give out a death sentence for blasphemy?   As an atheist, don't you see as more than crazy?  What century are we living in here?
Have we learned nothing from history?

The xtains kill the muslims and the muslims kill the xtains - so what?

Look what the Isreali zionists are doing to the Palestinians - look what the Amerikan zionists and xtains are doing to the Afghan muslims and did to the Iraqi muslims.

I like the Amerikan slogan they had in Vietnam - "kill them all and let god sort them out" - if the followers of religious belief want to kill each other why worry - when they are all gone we might have peace on earth.

Man created god before god created man - here endeth the lesson.................
Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.
