For your asa you need to deny ping replies from the outside interface. Attached is a link that explains how the asa responds to ping and how to deny it

As for the 1.1.1.y that is presumably the upstream router from your asa. There is nothing you can do on the asa to stop this responding to pings. You need to log onto the router and use an access-list to prevent this happening

The router might be managed by your ISP. If so you need to talk to them but they may well require it for troubleshooting purposes.
