Muslim lawyer of Asia Bibi: I defend Christians because they are the poorest and most vulnerable in society

Saif ul-Malook, a Muslim lawyer for Asia Bibi, is dedicated to defending Christians. He does this because he thinks Christians “do not have the means to defend themselves and therefore end up being penalized. They don’t have protectors in institutions with powerful families. For this reason, they are scapegoats and victims of injustices.”

He won the freedom of Asia Bibi who was for nine years in prison for an alleged crime of blasphemy. He is now handling the case of Shagufta Kousar, the Christian woman who was in the cell next to Asia Bibi.

The lawyer said “the happy conclusion of the storm Asia Bibi has lived through, who is now in Canada, is good first and foremost for her and her life. It is a good result for me and for all those who have worked to save her.” He also wants to meet Pope Francis because he considers him to be a man who is always on the side of the poorest and weakest.
