Mahira Khan speaks out after the Supreme Court verdict and people have been quite intense.
We all woke up this morning to the news of the Supreme Court giving its verdict on the Asia Bibi case. Around 9: 30 AM, the court announced that they have acquitted Asia of all charges, demanding her immediate release.
Many Pakistani celebrities took to Twitter to express how they felt after the verdict, like so many around the country
What a great morning

One such person was the superstar Mahira Khan. She gave her best wishes for Pakistan
May we always be ruled by the law of humanity. Pakistan Zindabad #AasiaBibi

The reactions to Mahira’s post, in particular, were really extreme and varied
اس کتیا نے خود اعتراف جرم کیا تھا لیکن عدالت اور حکومت میں بھی تمہارے جیسے بے غیرت کتے کافر بیھٹے ہوئے ہیں۔۔۔ اب انشاللہ مسلمان گستاخ کو پکڑ کر پولیس کے حوالے نہیں کریں گے بلکہ خود واصل جہنم کریں گے

People questioned her knowledge on the matter
Apko ko khaak pata hy k role of Law kia hy Rule of Law k sab say bary Mojad Nabi SAWW ke zaat hy

They even questioned her religion
Madam Law of Humanity to batadia apnay Zara gustakh e Rasool k bare main kuch farmaingi? ap k agay deen Allah aur Nabi kia hain.

Sharam and haya were brought in for no reason at all

It definitely is going to be a battle to change mindsets
I still don’t get why people are supporting #AasiaBibi .. Pakistan Zindabad tou tab when we actually start punishing the people who break our country’s laws … blasphemy about the Prophet pbuh is one of the most sacred laws of Pakistan and it should be respected!!!

Some comments were just plain old rude
Ap apny Dramy or Filmy Karain Don't Teach us rule of Law….
— AZIZ Akhtar 🇵🇰 (@iamAzizAkhtar) October 31, 2018
A lot of people blame ‘outside Pakistan’ forces for this verdict, which again, doesn’t make sense
Pakistan has become BANANA REPUBLIC where verdicts are not made in accordance with law but are enforced from extra constitutional forces

There was a lot of mention of Mumtaz Qadri
shame on u mam Mumtaz qadri k waqt ap jyso ko v sanp sonkh gaya tha ab nikal ai ho bhar humanity k lye ap jyse log k hoty hwy hamy islam k dushman bhar sy ni nazr aty
— ShineMoon (@Salman83548305) October 31, 2018
Thankfully, though, there was some sanity that prevailed
It really isn’t about humanity.. It is the ACTUAL TEACHING & SPIRIT OF ISLAM that won today!! Let’s just stop making it Islam vs humanity debate, it makes the job of so called molvis easier… #AasiaBibi

Today, Pakistan proved it was on the right side of history
An injustice has been corrected, she and her family suffered for 9 years. Thank you Mahira for always speaking up and being on the right side. I immensely respect you.

The verdict and the immediate aftermath of it are immense of Pakistan. The court made a monumental decision, one that will go down in the history books. This verdict has incited protests nationwide, and so we can only hope the next few days pass by peacefully and without any major incident.
What do you think of all this? Let us know in the comments.
