It is shameful that persecuted Christian Asia Bibi is not being allowed to leave Pakistan and live in peace with her family.

It is equally shameful we hear little about her plight from church leaders and indeed our own Government.

The impassioned plea from her daughter to allow Asia Bibi to leave Pakistan and be reunited with her family should prompt the church and Government to speak up and do more to help her.

She must now be allowed to live in peace with her family in a safe country and not be subjected to persecution and hatred and I find it a matter of utter shame the UK has not offered her sanctuary.

We also have to have more voices and more pressure from the Church and the whole international community - there must be a turning point to help reverse religious intolerance in Pakistan and elsewhere.
