Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) has reached an agreement with the federal and Punjab governments to call off protests and dharna against the acquittal of blasphemy accused Aasia Bibi by the Supreme Court.
Party spokesman Ejaz Ashrafi said: "The patron in chief of TLP, Muhammad Afzal Qadri, has issued the edict that says the chief justice and all those who ordered the release of Asia deserve death".
The illiterate Christian farm worker had angered Muslim co-workers on 14 June 2009 by drinking from the shared cup when she brought them a bucket of water as they picked crops together on a sweltering summer's day.
According to her statement in court, she had a heated argument with the women after they refused to drink water she had fetched for them because she was a Christian.
Bibi appeared to be in state of disbelief after hearing that Pakistan's Chief Justice Saqib Nisar had quashed her conviction almost eight years after she was first sentenced to death.
Shortly after the ruling, hundreds of Islamists blocked a key road linking the city of Rawalpindi with the capital, Islamabad. On Thursday, prison officials said two inmates were arrested last month for planning to kill Bibi by strangling her.
Earlier, he commented on the Supreme Court's verdict to acquit Aasiya Bibi in the blasphemy case.
Bibi maintained her innocence but spent most of the past eight years in solitary confinement.

Approximately 40 people are believed to be on death row or serving a life sentence in Pakistan for blasphemy, according to a 2018 report by the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. She was tried in a court and sentenced to death.
Mr Rizvi's envoys wanted Ms Bibi barred from leaving the country, but information minister Fawad Chaudhry rejected the demand and said the government would not be dictated to.
Bibi's blasphemy case has long roiled Pakistan.
Critics say strict blasphemy laws have often been used to get revenge after personal disputes, and that convictions are based on thin evidence.
She has also been a target for hardline Islamists in Pakistan, who have vowed to retaliate if she's released. In many cities of Punjiab there are demonstrations and roadblocks. She immediately appealed. The Lahore High Court upheld the conviction in 2014, which she then appealed to the country's Supreme Court.
Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar announced the long-awaited verdict. "She is acquitted of all charges and if not required for any other charges she will be released forthwith". Both men supported Bibi and had called for an end to Pakistan's Blasphemy Law. The assassin, Mumtaz Qadri, was hanged for the crime, but later was hailed by religious hard-liners as a martyr, with millions visiting a shrine set up for him near Islamabad.
It led to the prime minister, Imran Khan, warning the protesters in an evening televised address that the state could be forced to act against them.
Authorities, including members of the main military security agency, held negotiations with the leader of the group late on Thursday but they came to no agreement, the TLP leader, Khadim Rizvi, said.
Bibi did not appear in the courtroom and her whereabouts were a closely held secret for fear of attacks on her and her family.
