Ms Bibi, now 53, was convicted of blasphemy in 2010, a crime which carries a death sentence in Muslim-majority Pakistan, and she has been in solitary confinement on death row ever since.
It was a hot day in June 2009, when her mother went to fetch water for her fellow farmhands while working in a field picking berries.
The Muslim women she was labouring with objected, saying that as a non-Muslim Ms Bibi was unfit to drink from the same water bowl as them.
Ms Bibi would later say that the women insulted her religion, to which she responded: 'I believe in my religion and in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of mankind. What did your Prophet Mohammed ever do to save mankind?'
This prompted the Muslim women to go to a local imam and accuse Ms Bibi of blasphemy against the Prophet Mohammed.
