-Pakistan: 50,000 Rally in Support of Death for Those Who Insult Islam

KARACHI, Pakistan: On Sunday, nearly 50,000 Pakistanis demonstrated in support of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws which prescribe the death penalty for insulting Islam.

The demonstrators also chanted slogans supporting Mumtaz Qadri the admitted killer of Punjab governor Salman Taseer. Qadri who had been the governor’s body guard said that he killed Taseer because the governor supported the repeal of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws.

While the death penalty for blasphemy is usually overturned by the Pakistani courts, many times Islamist gangs or local mobs take matters in their own hands and kill the accused instead. Also, many Christians and other religious minorities find themselves unfairly accused by business rivals and end up spending years in prison for bogus blasphemy charges.

Response: Pakistan is under a great deal of pressure from the international community to change or drop their blasphemy laws. With the current rise of radical Islam in the country it is unlikely that they will now be dropped.

Since the assassination of Gov. Taseer, all political leaders in the country are too afraid to even speak out against the laws much less over turn them.

Again the Western hope and perception of a peaceful ‘moderate’ Islam is shown to be a mirage and a dream in light of the current nightmarish rise of radical Islam in the Middle East. This march in Pakistan is just the latest manifestation.              *Top of the Blog
