I have received some very tragic news that Asia Bibi the emblem of the recent surge in awareness of our freedom movement, is now suffering from a debilitating illness. It would seem whilst in solitary confinement somehow, she has contracted chicken pox. It has been reported that the infection has been due to the lack of hygiene and medical attention within the confines of prison.
Asia Bibi is said to be praying daily and fasting seeking peace in Pakistan. Asia condition is said to be grave, yet she has not been moved to a cleaner environment and is not receiving the medical care and attention she desperately needs.

He was working at Lal Musa station near Lahore and was confronted by Muslim workers about the Quran buring, despite condemning the action he was set upon by them
The BPCA condemns the continued incarceration of Asia Bibi, we call for her immediate release and pardon and urge the President of Pakistan to stop hiding behind the court appeals process and to use his automatic right to a presidential pardon. We ask for Christians globally to pray for Aasia's restoration of health.
We also call on the government of Pakistan to protect all it's people and we pray for safety of the persecuted church of Pakistan.
