In its petition, the pontifical charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) notes that regardless of what Pakistani courts eventually decide, Mairas life will forever be in danger, with an ongoing threat of honor killing, since Pakistani extremists consider her an apostate and will kill her at the first chance.
