Canadian PM Trudeau Says In Talks With Pakistan Over Asia Bibi

Asia Bibi is in hiding in Paksitan under state protection after she was freed from death row

Pakistan's information minister, Fawad Chaudry, said pictures which claim to show Mrs Bibi meeting Pope Francis are actually of her daughter, and date from two years ago.

Violent protests from Islamist radicals have erupted across Pakistan, leading Prime Minister Imran Khan to cave in to the demands of terror-affiliated extremist religious protesters by refusing Bibi and her family the authority to leave the county, which is effectually a second death-sentence.

The federal government is talking with Pakistan about the possibilty of bringing a Pakistani woman, who was recently released from death row, to Canada.

"There is a delicate domestic context that we respect which is why I don't want to say any more about that, but I will remind people Canada is a welcoming country".

On Tuesday, Pakistan's foreign ministry said Bibi's situation was discussed when Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi was called by his Canadian counterpart the previous day.

Bibi, a mother of five who is believed to now be in her 50's, has been blocked from leaving the country amid a wave of protests over her acquittal.

In another tweet, he quoted FM Qureshi as saying: "Aasia Bibi is our national and Pakistan fully respects her legal rights".

"It is a stance of the millions of Pakistani Muslims", TLP spokesman Ejaz Ashrafi told Reuters.

The Home Office has officially declined to comment on any asylum application, while others have cautioned against leaping to conclusions on the status of discussions. A mob accused her a few days later of insulting Muhammad, which led to her 2010 conviction. She is a Protestant and denies committing blasphemy.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper, which also quoted Mr. Johnson's letter to the Home Secretary, reported earlier this week that Britain had not offered asylum to Ms. Bibi and her family because of fears it would prompt "unrest" in the United Kingdom and attacks on British Embassies.
