Human Liberation Commission Pakistan is fighting for the basic human rights in Pakistan including false accused of blasphemy law 295A/B/C, for minority rights, rights of domestic workers, women rights, brick kiln workers rights, child rights, rights of field worker, rights of carpet industry workers and for all dominated and depressed individuals and groups of community. Doing such efforts on humanitarian basis is abhorrence and hatred by religious fanatics, capitalist, industrialists and mill owners.
When Asia Bibi a resident of village Ittan Wali Nankana was falsely accused of blasphemy charge 295 C  and was sentenced to death on November 8,2010, Human Liberation Commission Pakistan refused the court decision against innocent and oppressed Asia Bibi and launched agitation moment across the country in the all zones of HLCP. On January 2011 governor Punjab Sulaman Taseer was assassinated when he spoke in the favor of justice for Asia Bibi and on 2nd March 2011 federal minority minister Shahbaz Bhatti was targeted and killed by religious extremists in his car. The horrible consequences of Asia Bibi case brought terror and fear in the Christian community and those who were in favor of her.  Regardless of all vicious,  HLCP continued to raising their voice for the freedom of guiltless Asia Bibi.
