Asia Bibi is facing a death sentence. Following an argument with another woman who displayed open bigotry for her Christian beliefs, Asia Bibi was arrested and convicted under Pakistan's blasphemy law. The woman who insulted Asia's Christian beliefs was not charged under the same law. Asia is facing a death sentence for allegedly saying that Muhammad was a corrupt liar (SIC) yet the source of the allegation is herself both prejudiced and has a vested interest in not being truthful. The person filing the claim did not witness the alleged incident first hand... And even if the accusation were true, she is sentenced to death for making a statement that can't be taken seriously by any sane person as a cause for killing her.
Following the confirmation of her sentence I did a YouTube search and found several atheist and Christian channels posting videos in protest. I found ZERO Muslim channels posting videos even mentioning the case. If I'm wrong and these videos do actually exist and for whatever reason simply didn't show up in my search, please feel free to post them as a reply video or accept the challenge I've extended and make one.
UPDATE: I've found a mention of concern about blasphemy laws on AlJazeeraEnglish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmyzWH... They report on the unrest being caused by the Irish blasphemy law. The search tool used was supplied by AlJazeera. Obviously they consider Blasphemy Law news worthy. No results were returned for Asia Bibi.
UPDATE 12-06-10: I applaud the large number of videos I've found within the last two days, by Muslims, speaking out to Muslims for the embrace of sanity and human rights. At this point, a search for Aasia or Asia Bibi returns numerous video postings. Many by Pakistani Muslims, asking that Asia Bibi be spared and asking that the message of sanity be spread and shared.
