The Conservative Party has called on Prime Minister Scott Morrison to offer asylum to Asia Bibi (pictured), the Christian woman acquitted of blasphemy charges in Pakistan last week.
When released into the community, Bibi faces certain death at the hands of Islamic radicals, who do not accept the decision of the Pakistani Supreme Court.
Radical Islamic mobs have been blocking major roads in Pakistan and burning effigies of Bibi.
The Government of Prime Minister Imran Khan has capitulated to their demands and banned Bibi from travelling overseas.
Her lawyer has fled to London in fear of his life. During her nine-year case, two politicians - Punjab provincial governor Salmaan Taseer and Pakistani minister Shahbaz Bhatti were assassinated for supporting Bibi's cause.
Conservative Party spokesman and Queensland Senate Candidate Lyle Shelton said Bibi should be offered asylum in Australia.
“Christians are the most persecuted people group in the world.”
“Bibi, who spent eight years on death row before her acquittal last week, faces certain death at the hands of Islamic extremists when she is released,” Mr Shelton said.
“Pakistan should immediately abolish its so-called blasphemy laws and Australian State governments should also abolish so-called religious vilification laws.”
“Criticism of Mohammad should be allowed in Pakistan without fear of the death penalty and in Australia without fear of being dragged before a tribunal,” Mr Shelton said.
