Bibi's ordeal looks set to continue until the review is completed. In a court of law, Christians — especially women — have little or no voice and they live daily under the daily threat of blasphemy allegations and violence. They have been devastating for minorities, including Christians, who must always act with caution in case an allegation of blasphemy is raised to settle a personal score.
Rights groups have called for Bibi's release and criticized the blasphemy law, saying it has been used to settle scores or abuse religious minorities. Ahead of the verdict, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, a hard-line cleric who has brought tens of thousands of people into the streets for past rallies, called on his supporters to gather in all major cities to express their love for the prophet and to protest if Bibi is released. According to Malook , Kousar is being held in the same cell in which Bibi was imprisoned before being moved into protective custody after her sentence was overturned. The Christian woman in Pakistan who was on death row for nearly a decade before being acquitted by the country's top court last week is now seeking asylum elsewhere, after widespread violent protests throughout the country.
