As the Supreme Court reversed Asia Bibi’s certainty today, the country’s fallen into a bit of situational disorder. Whereas many are lauding the Supreme Court for standing at the right side of history and making a signpost conclusion of releasing a wrongfully convicted person. Religiously conformist groups are furious at this decision and demanding reversal through protests. We can commend the remarkable and brave comments of the Justice Khosa.
The judgment is being called as landmark but of particular note is Justice Asif Saeed Khosa’s additional note. Justice Khosa is known to have been part of the Supreme Court benches in other landmark cases, like the case against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s illegal investments – known as the “Panama Case”.
What a judgement.
"Blasphemy is a serious offence but the insult of appellant’s religion & religious sensibilities by complainant party & then mixing truth with falsehood in name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was also not short of being blasphemous." – Justice Khosa.

Bcs of today's decision, Islam's real definition is cleared.
What SC & Justice Khosa did is what real Islam of Prophet Muhammad SAWW
What TLP goons are doing is Islam of mullahs.
This is the difference. #AasiaBibi

People are celebrating his “guts” and courage in the face of unpleasant conditions and tough decisions
Justice Khosa is a hard, I mean very hard launda…
Naa Corrupts ki sunta hae, naa libdos ko appease kerta hae, naa fake mulvion se intimidate hota hae, na Govts se darta hae. Islamic references bhee deta hae, western intellectuals ko bhee quote kerta hae….

Justice Khosa is poised to become Pakistan’s next Chief Justice once the present Chief Justice Saqib Nisar retires on January 17, 2019 and by the looks of it, many Pakistanis are enthusiastically waiting for Justice Khosa to take charge of the judiciary.
