The case has drawn international condemnation of Pakistan’s harsh blasphemy laws. Bibi was arrested after a quarrel with Muslim women in eastern Punjab province and accused of insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, a charge she repeatedly denied.
Pakistani Islamists have been demanding Bibi’s execution and two officials, a governor and a minorities’ minister, were killed in 2011 for supporting her.
Rallies also took place on Thursday in the cities of Lahore and Karachi, demanding Bibi’s execution.
