Absolute lunacy in Pakistan where mobs are protesting the overturning of a death sentence for Asia Bibi, a Christain woman who has been sitting on death row for nearly a decade. She was accused of blasphemy, which is a capital offense in Pakistan. Unfortunately, it is well known that the punishable-by-death blasphemy claim is sometimes used as an easy vendetta between neighbors and the like. It doesn’t just shut a person up, it gets them thrown in jail and then executed. And it needs little evidence besides just some verbal testimony.
