Aasia Bibi's husband is looking for Donald Trump's help

Islamabad: The husband of a Pakistani Christian woman released by the Supreme Court in a blasphemy case last week on Sunday sought refuge from US President Donald Trump.

Aasia Bibi's husband, Ashiq Masih, appealed to Trump for refuge, citing the danger to family life. The Supreme Court ruled on October 31 that Bibi was released immediately and stated that blasphemy charges against her can not be proven. The ruling sparked nationwide protests from religious parties and brought the country to a standstill for three days before the government made a deal with the demonstrators.

"I urge the President of the United States to help us leave Pakistan," said Ashiq Masih.

"I also ask the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for help, I also ask the Prime Minister of Canada," he said, asking for help from his brother Jospeh Nadeem, who helped Bibi with his work.

The US, UK and Canadian High Commissions in Islamabad have yet to respond to a commentary on the video. Tehrik-e-Labbaik Pakistan has canceled protests.

Late on Friday, after the government reached an agreement to initiate legal proceedings to put Bibi on the Exit Control List, she said that she would not object to an appeal against the appeal previously filed against the SC. On Saturday, Bibi's lawyer Saiful Mulook left the country for threats of his life.
