Religious Minorities

Insulting religion can lead to imprisonment in more than 40 countries, and blasphemy is punishable by execution in at least 6 of them. In Pakistan, a Christian woman named Asia Bibi was sentenced to death by hanging and spent 8 years on death row after an unfair trial in which she was convicted for insulting Islam. And in India, individuals protesting the exclusion of the Muslim minority from the Citizenship Amendment Act have been arrested.
