Cake actress, Sanam Saeed expressed that we are finally taking baby steps towards the greater good.

 

Actor and director Sarmad Khoosat, who has recently worked with Justice Pakistan Project in a live broadcast against death sentence, called it a ‘blessed morning’.

 

Actor Ali Rehman Khan was delighted that justice was delayed but not denied in this case.

 

The JPNA 2 star Mawra Hocane, who is a lawyer as well, raised a question about the rights of minorities in our country. She called the decision not just kind, but also a right one.

Mawra’s brother-in-law and singer Farhan Saeed also requested Prime Minister Imran Khan to held hatemongers accountable for their actions in this time of crises.

Although almost all of these tweets were bombarded with adverse reactions and threats, but kudos to the members of media industry who did not bat an eye and maintained their stance in the face of opposition.

Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five, was on death row since 2010. She was accused of committing blasphemy in 2009. A trial court had found her guilty of the crime and awarded her the death penalty. Later the Lahore High Court upheld the sentence. As a last resort, her lawyers approached the Supreme Court (SC), seeking repeal of her sentence.
