A video is circulating the internet in which a Muslim youth, saying he is in Canada, vows to kill Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi, who recently fled to the North American nation from her home country after her death sentence for “blasphemy” against Muhammad was overturned.
“This message is for all the enemies of Islam and to the Jew government who helped her get out of Pakistan,” the man declared, according to a translation provided by the British Pakistani Christian Association, reported Breitbart News.
“To give Asia Bibi a terrible death and to send her to hell I also reached Canada last night,” he said.
“I am ready to die for the respect of Prophet Muhammad, and I will show that.”
In a chant, he said “the enthusiasm to die for the Prophet Mohammad will stay alive forever” and vowed to kill Bibi.
As WND reported, Bibi was held in protective custody after Pakistan’s Supreme Court overturned the conviction and death sentence in October as members of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan political party and others vowed to kill her, her family, and the judges and lawyers who helped her.
She had spent eight years on death row.
Breitbart reported it’s unknown whether the threat made in the video is genuine.
But Wilson Chowdhry, the BPCA chairman who advocated for Bibi’s release, said he has expressed his concern about Bibi’s safety with authorities in the United States, Britain, Canada and Pakistan.
“Pakistan has been relatively silent since the release of Asia Bibi, but international security agencies must not get complacent,” he said.
“Her release is a real bone of contention with the millions of radicalized Muslims across the globe who are waiting for an opportunity to assassinate Asia Bibi, or a mass terrorist strike in revenge for what they see as a perceived blasphemy.”
BPCA said security around churches in Pakistan has been increased significantly since the release of Bibi.
