Pakistan – Asia Bibi has reportedly forgiven her persecutors, though she remains imprisoned for blasphemy. Christian Today reports Bibi just spent her seventh Christmas behind bars, but told family who visited on Christmas Eve that she was not bitter.
“Christmas is the celebration of God’s mercy. I forgive my persecutors, those who have falsely accused me, and I await their forgiveness,” Bibi said.
She continued, “Jesus made this happy day for me and has accepted my prayers. I’m excited and full of joy in meeting today my family and celebrate Christmas with you.”
December 25 is also a holiday for Muslims, who celebrate the birth of the Prophet Muhammad. Bibi also acknowledged this, as she is being held captive for allegedly speaking against the holy figure of Islam.
“Today is also the birth of the Prophet Muhammad. Peace be upon him, on this day. Honestly I could never even think of disrespect. But, although I have been in prison for seven years, I do not hate those who did me wrong,” Bibi said.
“I pray that the Holy Prophet Muhammad will bestow wisdom on his followers so that peace can go on being built around the world. I pray that Jesus Christ will grant peace to the whole world.”
