A few hours after the Supreme Court of Pakistan upheld Asia Bibi’s acquittal, Twitter was filled with reactions on the decision by the country’s top court.

Here are some tweets that were trending with the hashtag #AsiaBibi:-

The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal challenging the acquittal of Asia Bibi, a Christian mother who was released in November last year after being on death row since 2010.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and comprising Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Justice Mazhar Alam Miankhel heard the review petition.

After hearing arguments from the petitioner, Qari Muhammad Salalam, the apex court rejected their appeal on merit.

Mustafa Chaudhry, the counsel for the petitioner, requested the apex court to set up a larger bench and seek opinion of Islamic clerics.
