I am thoroughly ashamed of my UK government if this is true: That it has apparently not offered Asia Bibi asylum should she wish to take it in the UK.

From an article How Immigration Changes Britain

.............

But today there are reports that the British government has said that it will not offer asylum to Asia Bibi. The reason being “security concerns” — that weasel term now used by all officialdom whenever it needs one last reason to avoid doing the right thing. According to this report, the government is concerned that if the U.K. offered asylum to Bibi it could cause “unrest among certain sections of the community.” And which sections would that be? Would it be Anglicans or atheists who would be furious that an impoverished and severely traumatized woman should be given shelter in their country? Of course not. The “community” that the British government will be scared of is the community that comes from the same country that has tortured Asia Bibi for the last eight years.

........

In any case, if it is true that the British government has declined to offer Asia Bibi asylum for this reason, then it should lead to a huge national and international outcry. Among other things, it suggests that the British government has got its priorities exactly the wrong way around. For it is not Asia Bibi who should not be in Britain. It is anyone from the “communities” who would not accept Asia Bibi being in Britain who should not be in the country. Though I wouldn’t expect any British politician to express that simple truth any time soon.

Religion is useless and religious people are so weak.
Can't believe that in 2018 so many people need crutches to get through life :rolleyes:

Awful that in 2018 there are still societies like this
Does religion even make people's lives better anywhere? It has always killed in human history. We need EDUCATION not brainwashing

Education has nothing to do with religiosity (or even religious fanatism).

Thousands protest in Lahore over acquittal of Christian woman in blasphemy case



Leaders of the Islamist conservative alliance Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), took the stage to denounce the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the death conviction of Asia Bibi for blasphemy.
The president of the MMA alliance, Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, stated that “we will never hesitate to scarify lives to honour the Prophet,” calling for the Supreme Court to revert its verdict “or this agitation will continue.”

The teaching of such violence should not be allowed in any civilized nation.

UK is clearly scared of terrorism backlash. They had KGB agents spilling Novichok and couldn't do anything about it so how would they stop a Muslim cavalcade? Nobody is saving lives when it comes to Christians. If this woman was a Muslim in need of a help I bet they wouldn't be silent and do something. But a Christian? Neah, that's so against the modern trends, now it's all about blasting Christianity for sexual misconduct of the priests :lol:

It's good news but it will still be a big mountain to climb for her. Has to get used to a new language, a new society and probably always has to keep watching over her shoulder. Hope she will find some happiness despite it all.

Her children are already in Canada, so there is hope she will find happiness.

Trudeau gave Omar Khadr, the Canadian Muslim who killed an American with a grenade in Afghanistan, $10M. (He bought a strip mall. The tenants are not happy about the future of their businesses.)
Then, in the PM’s office, Trudeau welcomed the family that were kidnapped in Afghanistan and held by ISIS under peculiar circumstances. That was days before the husband, Joshua Boyle, who had converted to Islam, was arrested for wife-beating.
Now get this....... Joshua Boyle was previously married to the sister of Omar Khadr! Small World, isn’t it?

So Asia Bibi should get about $100M from Trudeau. He could wear Pakistani national costume for a photo-op at the presentation.

That would make sense if Asia Bibi was Muslim.
