Why is Saif Mulook’s life in danger? Because he dared to defend a Christian woman from blasphemy charges. The Muslims who were demonstrating in Pakistan over the last few days and calling for the death of Asia Bibi don’t want non-Muslims to have any protection, any rights, any legal recourse, anything at all. And while Mulook has fled, the Pakistani government has barred Asia Bibi from leaving the country, so that Muslims may more easily find and murder her over her alleged “blasphemy.”
“Asia Bibi: Lawyer flees Pakistan in fear of his life,” BBC, November 3, 2018:
The lawyer representing a Christian woman acquitted of blasphemy after eight years on death row has fled Pakistan in fear for his life.
Saif Mulook told news agency AFP he had to leave so he could continue to represent Asia Bibi, whose conviction was overturned by judges on Wednesday.
