Militant posts video threat, saying he is in Canada to kill Asia Bibi
From the Tablet - The International Catholic News Weekly
An Islamic militant has posted a video on the internet boasting that he has arrived in Canada to kill Asia Bibi.
In the video, the would-be assassin sings an Islamic chant honouring Muhammad, the founder of Islam, and professes that he is a beloved believer of Islam who will slay "the blasphemer Asia Bibi."
The man tells the "enemies of Islam and the Jew government that set Asia Bibi free" that he will kill her, according to a May 14 statement sent to Catholic News Service by the British Pakistani Christian Association.
The association also said a number of churches in Pakistan have received threats from militants following Bibi's release May 8.
Wilson Chowdhry, association chairman, said the release was "a real bone of contention with the millions of radicalised 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."
"It is not known whether the threat made by the man in the video is genuine or not, however, the fact that the video exists is a chilling concern," he said. "We have informed American, British, Canadian and Pakistani officials of fear for Asia Bibi's safety and many other innocents who will be targeted because of hatred for her."
