ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Wednesday said the National Assembly and other institutions of the country should stand with the Supreme Court vis-à-vis its decision to acquit Asia Bibi in the blasphemy case.

The Supreme Court is our national institution. The National Assembly along with all other state institutions should stand with it, he said while speaking to reporters here, adding that the country cannot be run from the streets. Pakistan can only be run according to the constitution and the law. I am waiting for the day when the country is run through the rule of law and not threats,” he added.

PPPP Secretary General Farhatullah Babar commended the apex court judges for ‘refusing to be cowed down’ over the Asia Bibi case. “The decision has lit a candle in darkness and raises hopes in hopelessness. Also spare a thought for Shaheed Salmaan Taseer who raised voice for her and paid with his life for it, he added.

PPP Senator Sherry Rehman termed the acquittal of Asia Bibi a ‘landmark judgment’ and urged the state to protect those who stand for the rule of law and justice. “False accusers took half her life away. We have all been witness to the havoc mobs have wreaked to red lines before. That line must be held, she said in a tweet.
