The TLP, which won two million votes in the elections last July and makes enforcing blasphemy laws one of their chief political issues, warned of "terrible consequences" the day after her appeal was heard.
On the other hand, the ongoing protests against the Supreme Court (SC) verdict in Asia Bibi case have badly affected the timings of trains across the country. The latest development will likely irk rights groups calling for the release of Bibi, who has spent nine years in jail since her arrest in 2009. A few days later, a mob accused her of insulting the Prophet, leading to her 2010 conviction.
"Just on the time this judgement was coming through, the crackdown if that's what you want to call it on communication services was starting", he told Good Morning Europe on Thursday.

He also called for the ouster of the new government of Prime Minister Imran Khan and for army officers to rise up against powerful military chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, who he said "should be sacked from the army". He asked demonstrators to refrain from violence and await the outcome of the review petition to the Supreme Court.
"Let this legal process be completed first", he told state-run Pakistan Television.
Prosecutors alleged that in the row which followed, the women said Asia Bibi should convert to Islam and that she made offensive comments about the Prophet Muhammad in response.
