Thousands of people joined a Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal’s (MMA) rally in Karachi on Thursday, demonstrating against the Supreme Court’s recent acquittal of a Christian woman condemned to death for blasphemy.

One protester said, “Our main demand is that Asia, who has been released by the Supreme Court, must not be allowed to go abroad.”

Another protester noted that “if the decision is not reverted, we are ready to sacrifice our lives for the honour of our Prophet.”

Asia Noreen, better known as Asia Bibi, was sentenced to death by hanging in 2010 for allegedly making derogatory remarks about the Prophet Muhammad during a dispute with coworkers. The dispute arose after she was reprimanded for drinking water from her neighbours’ glass because she’s not a Muslim, reports say.
