Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi 'has price on her head'

( - VOM continues to follow the case of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman sentenced to death under Pakistan's blasphemy law. Asia's husband, Ashiq Masih, says his family has been receiving threatening phone calls, forcing him and his children to flee their home.

Ashiq told the BBC that they move constantly, trying to stay one step ahead of the anonymous callers who have been menacing them. "I ask who they are, but they refuse to tell me," Ashiq said.

Ashiq insists that his wife is innocent and will be freed, but he worries about what will happen if she is released. "When she comes out, how she can live safely?" he asks. "No one will let her live. The mullahs are saying they will kill her when she comes out."

In addition to the death sentence hanging over Asia, a radical cleric has put a price on her head, promising $6,000 CAD to anyone prepared to "finish her".

Please pray the Lord will protect and provide for Ashiq Masih and his children. May the entire family know the Lord's strengthening presence. Pray the Lord will use Asia's situation to bring about change in Pakistan for His glory. Pray for her release.
