The neighbors claimed later that Bibi had committed blasphemy by insulting the prophet Mohammed.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has defended the judges after the decision to overturn Mrs Bibi's conviction.

If you have an opinion about the recent release of Asia Bibi or her case, please feel free to get in touch with the Galleon to share your thoughts.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper, which also quoted Johnson's letter to the Home Secretary, reported earlier this week that Britain had not offered asylum to Bibi and her family because of fears it would prompt "unrest" in the United Kingdom and attacks on British embassies.

Britain's Interior Ministry, headed by Sajid Javid, is said to be urging the Foreign Office to grant Asia Bibi asylum. It was alleged that she made derogatory remarks about Islam after others objected to her drinking water from their glass because she was not a Muslim.

In another tweet, he quoted FM Qureshi as saying: "Aasia Bibi is our national and Pakistan fully respects her legal rights".

Chaudhry said the images misidentifying Bibi prompted death threats against a lawmaker in one photograph, Fazal Khan from the ruling Tehrik-e-Insaf Party.

During a candle-lit vigil in London earlier this week, Wilson Chowdhry of the British Pakistani Christian Association, warned that Britain appeared to be ignoring the plight of Asia Bibi, and this risked hitting its "vaunted and lauded position as a bastion for refuge for the oppressed".

Meanwhile, Asia Bibi's family continues to "pray for the good resolution" of the situation, and is "grateful to the Lord for her release", said Joseph Nadeem.

The mother-of-five was the first female non-Muslim charged under Pakistan's blasphemy laws.

In a letter by Boris Johnson to Mr Javid, he said: "I can not believe for a minute that these are considerations which should be allowed to prevail".

It comes amid mounting concern that Mrs Bibi, a Pakistani Christian facing.

"There is a need to check the unchecked social media and bring it within the ambit of law", he said, adding that fake news and fake notifications come up from fake accounts on social media on nearly daily basis and needed to be checked.

It fell to former Foreign Affairs Minister, now Justice Minister, Charlie Flanagan, to make one of the few coherent arguments for the blasphemy referendum when he said that the very presence of the unused provision is used by hardliners elsewhere to justify brutal laws.
