After the release from prison, the first picture of Asia Bibi has surfaced on social media in which Asia Bibi appearing in a happy mood with French writer Anne-Isabelle.
An image-sharing online page wrote in its headline that after the release, ‘Asia’s first image will warm your heart.’
The report adds that it will certainly take a long time to ease the trauma that Asia Bibi has undergone, but now she is happy to be seen free.
Threatened with death with her family, she left Pakistan with her family six months ago and settled in Canada.

Bilal Farooq, a twitter user, said, “How nice it is to see Asia, who has spent a long time in jail on a false charge, we should remember Salman Taseer and everyone who fought the Asia case.”
What a great sight it is to see a smile on the face of Asia Bibi, who spent years in jail over false charges of blasphemy. One must remember the sacrifice of Salmaan Taseer & the efforts of others who made this possible. In this photo, she is with journalist Anne-Isabelle Tollet pic.twitter.com/QcFBxAYOaR
