Pakistan: Asia Bibi Acquitted After Years Awaiting Death for "Blasphemy"
No one took to the streets of Europe to protest Asia Bibi's imprisonment. No major Western columnist penned articles proclaiming "Je Suis Asia Bibi." Western secular human rights groups, always ready and willing to embrace any cause, largely remained missing in action. The campaigners to free terrorists from a relatively comfortable prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had no time to ask for Asia Bibi's release. No feminist organization supported this Christian mother. The United Nations, which just condemned France for its law banning the niqab, also stood silent. It was a conspiracy of cowardice.
Where have our philosophers, humanists and journalists been during these last nine years of injustice? It is this sad indifference that is devouring the West.
