PRAY: Christian Asia Bibi Allegedly Flees From Pakistan To The Netherlands

According to Charisma News, Asia Bibi, the Christian mother who spent eight years on death row in Pakistan, is reportedly on her way to the Netherlands after seeking asylum there. Pakistan's Prime Minister banned Bibi from air travel amid rabid, violent protests from Muslim extremists over her recent acquittal of charges of blasphemy against Muhammad.

Bibi's lawyer Saif-ul-Malook, who already fled to the Netherlands after his life was threatened as well, confirmed reports of Bibi's release on Wednesday through a Dutch-based foundation helping persecuted Christians.

Pakistani officials continue to deny that Bibi has left the country, but confirm that they had been moving Bibi to a "safe location." At this point, Dutch officials will not confirm or deny reports that she has found asylum in the Netherlands. However, witnesses in Islamabad reported seeing Pakistani army units near the prison where she was released and at an airport in Multan.

Other sources claim an ambassador from the Netherlands came to accompany Bibi and that she and her family boarded a plane.
