The Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain unequivocally condemns the death sentence passed by Pakistan on a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, a 45-year-old mother-of-five for what they claim to be blasphemy against Islam. Regardless of whether the charge has any truth to it or not, criticising religion is not a crime let alone worthy of the death penalty. The Council of Ex-Muslims demands the immediate and unconditional release of Asia Bibi.
