Asia Bibi Pakistans most famous blasphemy law victim. Sign our petition (click here) Listen to Wilson's premier Christian radio interview (click here) Asia Bibi has been granted leave to appeal her death sentence by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.  There is still some serious legal process to follow before she can be acquitted, but this action is a serious step in the right direction.
