LONDON - Jemima Goldsmith, former wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan, has said that Pakistan’s government caved in to extremist demands to bar Asia Bibi from leaving the country.

Jemima took to Twitter saying, "Not the Naya Pakistan we’d hoped for. 3 days after a defiant & brave speech defending the judiciary, Pakistan’s gov caves in to extremist demands to bar #AsiaBibi from leaving Pak, after she was acquitted of blasphemy- effectively signing her death warrant."

She went on to say, "Still hoping there’s some plan afoot which we don’t know about."

Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) wound up sit-ins and protest after reaching an agreement with the government on the matter of Asia Bibi blasphemy case.
