The turmoil is finally over, as Aasia Bibi left the country yesterday. After almost a decade of suffering and sacrifices of Salman Taseer and Shahbaz Bhatti, Aasia finally got the justice.

She was accused of blasphemy and was sentenced to death Lahore High Court (LHC). However, on October 31 last year, she was acquitted by the Supreme Court of all the blasphemy charges, irking a violent reaction from hardline Islamists.

According to Foreign Office source, Aasia Bibi safely left Pakistan yesterday and will be spending rest of her life in Canada. Further the British-Pakistani Christian Association also confirmed the news of her safe departure. In a notification, it said that they have “received confirmation from a British diplomat that Aasia had safely exited Pakistan”.
