It has been over a month since Asia Bibi has been acquitted of blasphemy charges after being on death row for nearly a decade. Yet she still has not be reunited with her children in order to protect their safety.
Esha and Eisham, Asia’s two children, have not been able to physically see her, but they have spent time talking on the phone with their mother since her release. Since her arrest in 2010, Joseph Nadeem has been helping take care of her family and ensure their safety.
Nadeem spoke with Aid to the Church in Need, a Catholic charity, about some of the challenges the family has faced in the days following Asia’s acquittal. “As soon as Asia was acquitted, we had to flee,” Nadeem shared. In recent days, the violence has continued to increase.
