Pakistan and the barbaric blasphemy law

Pakistan and the barbaric blasphemy law

Pakistan is clearly in crisis and the blasphemy law is clearly highlighting all the negatives of Islam and of Pakistan itself.  After all, 2010 is following on from past years where minorities fear the blasphemy law and Ahmadiyya Muslims, Christians, and other minorities, reside in fear.  The same also applies to moderates within the Sunni Muslim community because claims of blasphemy is both a religious and political tool.  Therefore, the internal legal system is openly espousing hatred and creating mayhem by maintaining the blasphemy law.

This was clearly visible when Christians were burnt alive by radical Sunni Islamists in 2009, therefore, now is the right time to eradicate this dangerous law which is sowing discord and hatred. Both internal and external pressure is needed in order for Pakistan to start afresh. The same applies to crushing radical Sunni Islamic institutions and networks which are causing mayhem.

However, will the current leadership deal with this crisis and tackle rogue elements within both the political system and military? After all, the role of the security services in Pakistan is clearly a major issue because they have given a free reign to Sunni Islamic radicals to kill at random in both Afghanistan and Kashmir (India). More recently, this external export is now trying to challenge the state internally so the stakes are clearly high.

Turning back to the blasphemy law it is abundantly clear that this issue is being manipulated by radical Sunni Islamic forces within Pakistan. Therefore, many innocents have been put in prison on the grounds of blasphemy and this law threatens the Christian community, Ahmadiyya Muslims, and anyone deemed to have blasphemed against the Koran and Islam.

It is clear that the blasphemy law can be used by Muslims in order to crush both the minorities of Pakistan or to accuse so-called enemies of Islam or on the grounds of having a grudge. Therefore, many Christians and Muslims have been victims of this terrible law and the fear of being accused of this is great.

Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti, President of the Pakistan Christian Congress, has demanded openly and with a firm conviction that the government of Pakistan must “repeal the blasphemy law.” Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti is also calling for the “arrest (of) the culprits before August 11, 2009.”

According to an article written in the Pakistan Christian Post (http://pakistanchristianpost.com) by Joseph Keenan “The culprits belonged to a banned Sunni Muslim extremist group – Sipah-e-Sahaba….” This applies to the attacks on Christians in Gojra town which led to many Christians being burnt alive by Sunni Islamic zealots.

The article by Joseph Keenan also highlights how the brutal blasphemy law was implemented and strengthened. He states that the “Pakistan Christian Congress (PCC) said Section 298-A added in an amendment in 1980 stated that use of derogatory remarks, respect of holy personages, whoever by words, either spoken or written or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo or insinuation, directly or indirectly defiles the sacred name of any wife or member of the family of prophet Mohammad, subject to three years imprisonment.”

The article continues and shows you how the legal system became even more brutal and harsh against all minorities in Pakistan or against any person who supports freedom or liberty.

For “In 1982, another amendment was made and section 295-B was added in PPC, punishable with imprisonment of life.” Then the most controversial part was added in 1986 because “section 295-C, was added, the most serious, controversial and presently invoked amendment was made, a capital punishment of death penalty.”

Therefore, in modern day Pakistan you can be killed on the grounds of blasphemy according to the judicial system. Of course the blasphemy law is about Islamizing Pakistan and crushing all minorities or people who disagree with Islamization.

After all, in the past “fear,” Islamic Sharia law and “dhimmitude” was part and parcel of Islamization and the same applies to laws which always favour Muslims versus non-Muslims during legal cases. Therefore, the blasphemy law is about stifling religious minorities and of course it panders to radical Islamists who desire to kill and persecute all minorities or any deemed enemy.

Joseph Keenan further comments that “There have been many arrests of Christians under section 295-B & C in Pakistan. Some have been brutally murdered in day light from (the) hands of radical Muslims, some killed in jails and police lock ups.” He also makes it clear that fairness and protection is not happening and clearly the treatment of people accused of blasphemy is brutal and harsh.

Therefore, I hope many people join Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti because a “Black Day” will be observed on August 11, 2009, in order to highlight the ongoing suffering of Christians in Pakistan and the recent brutal murders which took place in the town of Gojra.

All information can be found at http://pakistanchristianpost.com The Pakistan Christian Post. Therefore, it is clear that “Black Day” is a way to raise a very important issue because does Pakistan want to modernize or Islamize?

Also, “the soul of Pakistan” is being blighted by hatred and moderate Christians, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, or whoever, must stand up and be counted because freedom and liberty is under assault and dangerous forces want to impose radical versions of Islam on the masses.

If the government of Pakistan wants a bright future for all citizens in this nation then real changes must be implemented and the forces of radical Sunni Islam must be crushed. Pakistan is “at the crossroads and on the abyss” because in parts of this nation it is a failed state because government control is being challenged by radical Sunni Islamic fighters.

Yet the real tragedy for minorities in Pakistan, irrespective if Christian, Shia Muslim, Ahmadiyya Muslim, Hindu, or whatever; is that minorities face systematic persecution at the hands of both radical Sunni Islamists and the central government. It is time for a new way in Pakistan and repealing the blasphemy law would be a good start and after the recent brutal murders of Christians, I clearly support Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti and other leaders who want the legal system changed.

Pakistan – Sunni Islamists attack females for studying

PAKISTAN — Sunni Islamists attack females for studying

By Lee Jay Walker
THE MODERN TOKYO TIMES

Schoolgirls in Pakistan

The nation of Pakistan is currently in crisis because many parts of this nation are out of control and central forces can do little to stem the tide of Sunni Islamic hatred. Given this reality, the Taliban and other radical Sunni Muslim organizations have warned young females from obtaining an education. This policy is not related to the government of Pakistan but the government of this nation must be held accountable for not protecting females and teachers.

Instead this barbaric policy is being introduced by radical Sunni Islamic forces who desire to rule by fear. Attacks which began to increase in 2009 have continued in 2010 and schools have been bombed by pro-Taliban forces.  Therefore, how can Pakistan and other nations stop this madness and mass cruelty?

Of course the political correct liberals in the West and the “well meaning” who try to excuse every crime committed by these fanatics, remain mainly silent when issues like this occur. Therefore, we hear so much about Guantanamo Bay but what about the dark forces of radical Sunni Islam, why don’t we get more information about this global reality?

Yes, Guantanamo Bay can be questioned because of the violation of international law. Yet what about informing people about the brutal ideology of radical Sunni Islam? After all, they support the persecution of women, killing homosexuals, killing converts from Islam, stoning people to death for adultery, closing female schools, killing teachers who teach females, and many other barbaric and draconian measures.

Yet the political correct who were aghast by Guantanamo Bay, say very little about the reality of radical Sunni Islam. Therefore, today we are seeing a new wave of radical Sunni Islam in parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan once more. This means a new drive against women in order to maintain a firm male grip over society. However, the mass media, on the whole, appears to be asleep on this issue and feminists remain mainly silent and the same applies to moderate Muslims who only see Islam in a positive light?

Therefore, in the early part of the 21st century we are witnessing a militant Sunni Islamic ideology which supports destroying schools which teach females, killing teachers who teach young girls, and other brutal methods in order to rule by fear.  This is being done in the name of Islam and this barbaric way of thinking appears to be gaining ground and minorities also fear persecution, therefore, Ahmadiyya Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, and others, fear an “Islamic year zero.”

This mindset somehow appears to be growing in parts of Pakistan and the hands of funding from Saudi Arabia and other draconian nations is enabling this.  Alas, the liberal mass media wants to say little or excuse every possible crime which is being done in the name of Sunni Islam.

To the followers of this radical Sunni Islamic ideology, they deem the killing of innocents and ruling by fear to be Godly. In their eyes it is right to humiliate and persecute women, Shia Muslims, Ahmadiyya Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and Sikhs; kill converts who leave Sunni Islam; to chop hands and feet off for minor crimes; to stone women to death for adulter;, and so forth. This ideology is similar to Nazism, it is about the destruction of all alternative thought patterns and it is based on ruling by fear.

This radical Sunni Islamic Sharia state which is desired by Islamists would mean a return to an age of complete barbarity. If a political movement in any developed nation rose up like this, then all liberals and democrats would be aghast, however, many parts of the mass media are ignoring the reality of what radical Sunni Islam means. Therefore, without any major political desire, this problem will be left unchallenged and females will be the first victims and after them the rest will follow.

Given this, the government of Pakistan and outside nations must work closely together in order to support the most vulnerable in society. Pakistan also must close down all radical religious schools because these schools are breeding grounds for radical Islamists who indoctrinate very young people. Therefore, the “real war” must be the control of “education and welfare services.”

America and NATO are now bogged down in Afghanistan because Islamic Sunni militants can freely move between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Yet while the military is needed to prevent the Taliban from taking power; this policy must be more dimensional. Secular schools are needed and all welfare services must be taken over by both central governments. At the same time, all moderate Sunni religious leaders must work alongside the government in order to stop the next generation from being brainwashed.

Education and the welfare sector is the “real war” and the central governments of Afghanistan and Pakistan must be supported in these vital areas. The world must act and it must act alongside moderate forces within Afghanistan and Pakistan. If not, then this radical Sunni Islamic movement will threaten other societies and nations, for example Bangladesh, Indonesia, Nigeria, and others.

In modern day Afghanistan and Pakistan you have many people who face persecution. This applies to females who merely want to go to school, Shia Muslims who face enormous persecution, moderate Sunni Muslims, different sects within Islam, converts to Christianity or other faiths, and so forth. The NAZI style methodology of radical Sunni Islam is clearly very potent and just like in NAZI Germany, all alternative points of views are deemed to be punishable by death or other forms of coercion by the use of brute force.

If Afghanistan and Pakistan, alongside outside nations, can not protect females throughout all of society, then who can be protected from these dark forces? The battle ground is clear for all to see, it is about the control of the education sector and welfare sector. At the same time, internal corruption must be ended via genuine reforms and international financial support must be aimed at creating “a just society” and not just window dressing.

Of course this will not be easy, but the military option by itself is not viable and the same applies to maintaining the current status quo. Major institutions in both nations need to be changed alongside greater centralization where central power is very weak. Also, moderate Sunni Muslim clerics must come forward because radical Sunni Islam desires to destroy everything, including the diversity of Sunni Islam. The Taliban and other organizations desire a world where women are stoned to death for adultery and where women remain in the shadows; this radical ideology needs to be challenged by all forces which support humanity, if not, this crisis will grow and spread.
