Will Asia Bibi ever be truly 'free?'

The Christian Pakistani woman, whose blasphemy conviction was overturned by Pakistan's highest court, will spend Christmas in hiding in that country.

She has spent much of the past eight years on death row in solitary confinement.

Christian leaders must continue to put more pressure on the Pakistani Government to allow Mrs Bibi to live in peace and leave the country.

We 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 ensure the state respects the rights of the Christian minority in that country.
