Aasia Bibi’s name will not be added to the ECL, says Shehryar Afridi

Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Afridi assured on Wednesday that the federal government will not place Aasia Bibi’s name on the Exit Control List (ECL) unless she is proven guilty of a crime or the court orders them to do so.

The Pakistani government says Asia Bibi and her family are in Pakistan and are being provided complete security by the government, according to VOA.

After the Supreme Court acquitted Aasia Bibi of blasphemy charges on October 31, the government reached a five-point agreement with right wing political party Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan to end the subsequent countrywide protests. One of the points of the agreement was to initiate legal proceedings to add Aasia Bibi’s name to the ECL.

However, the government has yet to take any action to do so.
