Pak SC to hear review plea against Asia Bibi's acquittal in blasphemy case

Pakistan's Supreme Court will decide on 29th January whether to allow an appeal against its acquittal of Christian woman, Asia Bibi, in a blasphemy case.

The Supreme Court's decision in October last year to overturn the conviction of Asia Bibi sparked nationwide protests and death threats from hardline groups. 

The Dawn reported that Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa will head the three-member bench that will hear the review petition. In the petition, it has been argued that the Supreme Court's acquittal of Aasia did not meet the standards of jurisprudence as well as Islamic provisions. 

Aasia, a 47-year-old mother of four, who is now in protective custody, was convicted in 2010 after being accused of insulting Islam in a row with her neighbours. She always maintained her innocence, but spent most of the past eight years in solitary confinement.
