The head covering with duppatta is a cultural norm, this is akin to saying that women in the west are forced to wear pants.

Asia Bibi has been shown in pictures dressed this way:

This is not a cultural norm for all women in Pakistan. And I am sure that Christian women such as her would probably not dress this way in the absence of fear for her life.

It wasn't the cultural norm for women in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon or Egypt to dress so modest or restricted in the not very distant past either. Hutterites and Menonites in Canada are relatively covered as well.

The covering she's shown wearing in that picture is what she was wearing on the day of her appearance in a muslim court in Pakistan a few years ago, it was after she was arrested and charged with blasphemy. She was not allowed to appear in a muslim court uncovered, otherwise she would have also been charged with contempt of court and executed for it. No woman, no matter what their religious persuasion and no matter whatever country they come from, would be allowed to appear uncovered in a muslim court there.

Maybe Ms. Bibi isn’t safe yet.

My guess is that if someone really wanted her dead, they would use someone already in Canada who is radicalized.
