Asia Bibi fasting; relatives worried about her health

March 24, 2011

Asia Bibi, the Pakistani woman who faces a death sentence after being convicted of violating the nation's blasphemy law, has undertaken a rigorous Lenten fast, prompting relatives to fear for her health.

"During Lent I want to pray and to fast for peace and justice. I want to offer up my suffering to God to be close to Him," Asia Bibi said. A spokesman for her supporters said that he hoped doctors would be admitted to see the prisoner, who is being held in isolation because of death threats.
