Asia Bibi and the case that makes a mockery of Britain’s asylum laws, by Douglas Murray.
In between the small amount of other news this week there has been a certain amount of attention on the plight of the Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi and her family. Bibi has spent most of this decade on death-row in Pakistan. Her crime is that a bigoted Muslim neighbour of hers made up a crock accusation against her and said she had blasphemed against Islam.
In the last week there has been some attention on the fact that various countries are looking into giving asylum to Bibi and her family — Britain among them.
But it appeared earlier this week that the UK would not be offering this genuine asylum seeker any asylum because there were concerns about — ahem — ‘community’ relations within the UK should she be allowed to move here.
Britain has applied for future membership of the third world. It’s been accepted!
