The Pakistan Supreme Court acquitted Asia Bibi of the death sentence Wednesday, ordering her release before a packed courtroom.
Her husband, Ashiq Masih, praised the court’s decision.
“I am very happy. My children are very happy. We are grateful to God. We are grateful to the judges for giving us justice. We knew that she is innocent,” he said.
Although Bibi is free, she is likely not safe.
“Clearly she will need asylum in a western country where she can live out the remainder of her days in peace,” Wilson Chowdhry, chairman of the British Pakistani Christians Association, told CBN News.
“These charges have been proven false time and again and it is time for her to return home to her family.”
The church in Pakistan is urging believers around the world to pray for Bibi and her family.
