Blasphemy Laws Embarrass Pakistan

  • Pakistan may be a lost cause: Once such religious laws are on the books, they are nearly impossible to excise. Religious conservatives can depict their repeal as anti-Islamic, and all but the boldest moderates are cowed by the recognition that radicals will go outside the political process to impose their will or punish dissent. With the jailing of Masih, Pakistan has reached a new low.

  • Actually most of the blasphemy cases are Punjab based (you know the same Punjab which is No1 in camel sex and dog sex searches on internet) but it unnecessarily tarnishes rest of Pakistan.

  • It is quite clear that many in Punjab are of unusually primitive and backwards mind-set resulting in these tragic events on a regular basis.

  • While promoting the idea of liberty for blasphemy, the West must first let everybody express facts about holocaust and other misdeeds of the Zionists.

  • Hussain Farooqui, no one is killing anyone over holocaust and certainly not trying to kill a 14 years old mentally challenged girl. What is the comparison here?

    Certainly in the context of blasphemy cases a law against holocaust makes sense to discourage that mind-set taking over the society again, which is the same mind-set followed by the supporters of Blasphemy law. On the same lines, not only Blasphemy law should be abolished but in its place a law should be enacted to prosecute those who justified and supported Blasphemy law in the first place so this brutal barbaric mind-set can be eradicated form the society.

    Bottom line: If anything, Blasphemy law cases justify a law discouraging a holocaust mind-set.

  • Yahaya

    The nations who are making fuss over the law of blasphemy do not have iota of guilt for genocides over three continents, 50 million deaths in WW-II, use of nuclear bombs over helpless Japanese, massacres in the Soviet revolution,,etc.

    Yahaya, we are not so shameless to be silent over the blasphemy against our beloved Prophet SAW.

  • Hussain Farooqui, not everyone condemning blasphemy law has a history of genocide. Also most people alive today have nothing to do with those genocides in the past so can’t be blamed for it.

    Your beloved prophet has nothing to do with the majority of this world who do not believe in him, consider him a false prophet, and as such do not respect him. Why are you imposing your beliefs on them? Would you accept it if they imposed their beliefs, which you consider to be false, on you under punishment of death? What an idiotic argument which even you would not accept if applied to you in reverse. Just a sign of primitiveness and barbarity from you people, otherwise there is no logic in this argument.

    Despite all that, in general, most of the world gives much more liberty to Muslims and a lot of respect to their beliefs and ways; as compared to Muslim countries do to both Muslims and non-Muslims alike. There are very few cases of disrespect in the west. Compare that to routine murders and persecutions you commit in your societies against others in the name of religion on an almost every day basis.

    Bottom line is you are getting much better treatment, in general, than you deserve. Be happy about it, instead of keep trying to push your luck and making majority of the world angry resulting in a backlash. Many of the disrespects that occur these days, you have earned them with great effort on your part. In general try to be respectable to others if you want respect in return. Persecuting 14 year old girls like Ramsha will not get you or your prophet any respect.

  • Blasphemy Laws Embarrass Pakistan ?

    شر ع میں شرم کیسی

  • This is Pakistan you are living in. It is a muslim majority country. Islamic laws will prevail if you do not like to live in this country you are free to leave.

    Prohphet Muhammad (pbuh) is our last prophet. Any "real" blasphemy requires due penalty. False prophet hood also requires death penalty through due process.

    Stop calling Blasphemy law embarrassment because its our pride that we love our prophet and will not tolerate disrespect against him.

    The issue is with people who misuse this law. It is the neighbors and relatives and personal enemosity which frames up people. we need to investigate before condemning but not make the law appear to be bad.

  • False prophet hood also requires death penalty through due process.

    Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists etc consider your prophet a false prophet. Can his followers be killed, after due process of course?
