A religious group in Pakistan on Friday is demanding the execution of a Christian woman on death row and all others convicted under the country’s blasphemy laws.
The Sunni Tehrik party held demonstrations across Pakistan in attempts to warn the government not to amend the blasphemy law.
A statement released by the group accused the government of attempting to become a secular and liberal country.
Protesters are demanding the immediate execution of Aasia Bibi who was convicted in 2010 after having a verbal clash with Muslim women working at a farm harvesting berries in the Punjab province.
Bibi was accused of insulting the prophet Mohammad and convicted under the country’s harsh blasphemy law. In 2015, the Supreme Court of Pakistan stayed her execution.
