PAKISTAN – On March 27, 2016, thousands gathered in Islamabad’s twin-city Rawalpindi to commemorate the Chehlum of Mumtaz Qadri, marking the 40th day after his death. Qadri was executed for murdering Salman Taseer, governor of the province of Punjab, in 2011, who was opposing Pakistan’s infamous blasphemy laws. Many radical elements in Pakistan welcomed the murder of Taseer and celebrated Qadri as a hero before and a martyr after his death.

On this very Sunday, thousands of Qadri’s supporters from all over the country marched on the parliament in Islamabad, under heavy resistance of police forces. They managed to reach D-Chowk, the square right in front of the parliament, where they set up a sit-in in, demanding the establishment of Shariah law, the release of arrested Sunni clerics, and guaranteed enforcement of the country’s blasphemy laws.

Mind you, this is the same country in which tens of thousands of people poured into the streets to honor a man executed by the state for murdering a politician who wanted to end blasphemy laws.

Introduction: The Regular Abuse of Pakistan’s Controversial Blasphemy Law

Blasphemy laws have always been a controversial subject for discussion in Pakistan. These laws have put hundreds of members of minority communities behind the bars. It has commonly been observed that section 295- A/B/C of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has been badly misused by the majority community.

Even discussion and dialogue in relation to this controversial law has taken the lives of two prominent Pakistani politicians, Governor of Punjab Salman Taseer and Christian Minister Shahbaz Bhatti. Both were assassinated in broad daylight in the capital of Pakistan. Similarly many of the victims of these laws were killed in court rooms, jails or in lockups by the extreme elements of Pakistani society.

Since 2009 [we] the Farrukh Saif Foundation (Previously known as World Vision in Progress) have been defending the victims of the Blasphemy Law. During that time we have found that in most cases people had been falsely and even maliciously accused. In some cases they accusations were solely the result of personal vendettas or rumor mongering.

The Pakistani Government has failed to provide security to such victims or to the communities in which they live. The Government may be trying to handle these matters diligently, but it is not handling them effectively. Radicalism in society has reached new and frightening levels and matters regularly spiral out of control and result in vicious acts of mob justice. Many times it has been observed that law enforcement agencies and even the institutions charged with delivering justice have failed in their duty to provide justice due to the enormous pressure that is applied by vociferous and aggressive extreme elements. The atmosphere of intimidation and fear within Pakistan is palpable!


Shafqat is regularly getting sick with the bed sores and recently 16 blood bottles were used to control is PH level. He cannot go to the washroom nor do anything without assistance. It is so difficult for a paralyzed man to handle all his personal issues while in the jail.

Appeal Lodged by the Farrukh Saif Foundation – and an Appeal to the International Community

Since the beginning of this case the Farrukh Saif Foundation (previously known as World Vision in Progress) has been protesting against the attitude of the Lower Court. We have submitted the application in the High Court that the Addition Session judge had already made up his mind in advance to give death sentence to the couple. The High Court of Lahore referred back our petition with the direction to expedite the matter.

We would request that the International Community and people of all nations speak out against this terrible and cruel injustice. We especially request that people pray for Shafqat and Shagufta.

In the Month of April the High Court of Lahore will hear the appeal that we filed against the Death Sentence.

Once again, I call attention to Jyllands-Posten editor, Flemming Rose, who spoke in Helsinki in November of 2015 on free speech rights (an excerpt included below the video)

h/t: Vlad


So what makes it difficult today to win the battle for free speech?

Of course there are many reasons, but today I will point to what I will say is the confusion and misunderstanding of fundamental concepts in a liberal democracy, and I will just name two.

The one is the relationship between tolerance and freedom.

Many people today believe that tolerance and freedom, that they are opposites, that there is a tension between tolerance and freedom and that we have to balance tolerance against freedom to make it possible to live together in peace. That is not the case if you look at it historically, after the wars of religion in Europe in the 16th and 17th century.

The states of Europe, the Protestants and the Catholics worked out a doctrine of religious tolerance that in fact grew out of the right to freedom of religion. The fact that Protestants had to accept that they would be living side-by-side with Catholics whom they despised and hated, and vice-versa.

So historically freedom and tolerance are two sides of the same coin, and the bigger the tension between these two concepts, the more a threat to the foundation of liberal democracies. So I have to, we have to reeducate ourselves about the close relationship between freedom and tolerance. There can be no freedom in society without society being able to tolerate opinions that the majority don’t like.

And freedom doesn’t make sense if it doesn’t imply a wide understanding of tolerance of opinions that we may despise and dislike. So the relationship between tolerance and freedom is one key concept that we have to re-educate ourselves about.

The other misunderstanding I believe, is about the relationship between words and deeds.

Many people today believe that, you know, words can be as violent and hurtful as deeds, and I agree that words can be hurtful, and words can incite from time to time, but if you look at history and the development of free speech, and the fight against censorship, the key distinction was the establishing of a distinction between words and deeds.

If you look at the key difference between free societies and un-free societies, it is exactly that free societies are characterized by clear distinction between words and deeds. It’s why dictatorships and un-free societies they erode that distinction.

In a dictatorship words are being perceived as if they were actions and therefore dissidents and critical voices are being silenced with reference to the fact that they are a threat to the peace of the public order, and so on and so forth. So by equating evil words and evil deeds we are in a way moving back to the time before the Middle Ages, in Europe where people were being burned at the stake for saying critical things about the Church, about God, about people of other faiths, and I don’t think that’s where we would like to go. I think that this is happening because it has become very popular to play the grievance card, that people think that they do have a right not to be offended.

Islamic clerics back blasphemy laws: those who insult Mohammed have no right to live

by Kamran Chaudhry

Ten ulema and a former judge criticised a bill that would water down the existing blasphemy law. They also support the release of Mumtaz Qadri, who murdered Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, who defended Asia Bibi.

Lahore (AsiaNews) – Islamic religious leaders have attacked the government’s plan to neutralise the much criticised blasphemy laws, and expressed strong support for the release of Mumtaz Qadri, the bodyguard who murdered Punjab Governor Salman Taseer.

An emotionally charged ‘Seminar for protection of Prophet’s dignity’ was held last Saturday at Lahore Press Club. Ten ulemas expressed their reservation against a draft bill that aims to add the word “intention” to the law.

Human rights groups as well as Church leaders have repeatedly stated that 295C is used in extrajudicial killings and the burning of Christian settlements.

If approved by the Law Ministry, the new legislation would be reviewed by a committee before going to parliament. According to seminar speakers, 14 people accused of blasphemy have been hanged so far, whilst 19 more are serving life imprisonment.

Death threats to secular bloggers are on the rise in Bangladesh. A few years back, hardline Islamists demanded a blasphemy law to stop bloggers they perceive to be anti-Islamic from writing about Islam. Secular forces in Bangladesh say that their views are under threat. Intolerance is growing as the country’s politics increasingly diverge into secular and non-secular poles.

A secular blogger has been hacked to death in north-eastern Bangladesh in the country’s third such deadly attack since the start of the year.

Ananta Bijoy Das was attacked by masked men with machetes in Sylhet, police say. He is said to have received death threats from Islamist extremists.

Mr Das wrote blogs for Mukto-Mona, a website once moderated by Avijit Roy, himself hacked to death in February.

Sweden has confirmed it turned down a visa request from Mr Das in April.

He had been invited to attend a press freedom event by the Swedish Pen writers organisation but officials in the country’s embassy in Dhaka refused the request, citing a risk he might not return home.

Swedish Pen told the BBC they were in the process of submitting an appeal when they heard of Mr Das’s murder. The group has demanded an explanation from their government, the BBC’s John McManus reports.

You can’t accurately criticize Islamic State without addressing Islam, so that’s why Muslims and Obama take to spreading the false meme that IS does not represent Islam.

Man charged with ‘insulting Islam’ in Dubai over Facebook post on Isis violence in Iraq

An Indian man has reportedly been charged with “insulting Islam” in Dubai over a Facebook post.

The 41-year-old man, who has not been named, has appeared before the Court of First Instance in the United Emirates (UAE), the Khaleej Times reported.

He allegedly made the offending comments in conversations and posts on the social network in July last year, after watching a video about the escalating violence in Iraq as Isis swept through the country.

The rest of her community, and all who are still sane in France, should stand up with this woman and declare their solidarity and do exactly what she has done.

This is why blasphemy laws (hate speech laws included) should be banned straight away. What the French judicial system is saying in prosecuting Bardot, is that other’s sensibilities are more important than hers, and others who voice similar concerns. Muslims insulting Christians or secularists in still somewhat Christian France is fine, they can promote their ideology short of inciting violence and the state will look the other way.Voice your opinions against that ideology and what the adherents of that ideology are doing to your communities and society as a whole, and into the hoosegow you go.

NOTE: This latest radio interview with Dr.Andrew Bostom is an excellent information treasure trove on how Mohamed’s persecution of those who mocked him have led to the blasphemy laws in Islam today that is affecting the West at large.

Bardot has written: “I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country.”

Bardot, seventy nine, is an avid animal rights activist and abhors the slaughter of animals for any purpose, including religious ones. But mainly, she laments “the Islamization of France.”


Former film star Brigitte Bardot, France’s iconic blonde bombshell and “sex kitten” who reigned supreme from 1952 – 1973, is currently on trial for the fifth time for insulting Muslims and “inciting racial hatred.” Bardot has been fined four times and has also received suspended jail sentences.

Now, the prosecutor, Anne de Fontette, wants a heftier fine and a tougher sentence: the equivalent of $24,000 and a two month (hopefully) suspended jail term.

What crimes has Bardot committed in the land without a First Amendment, in the land of Hate Speech laws that are being slickly exploited by non-persecuted Muslims?

Bardot has written: “I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country.”

Bardot, seventy nine, is an avid animal rights activist and abhors the slaughter of animals for any purpose, including religious ones. But mainly, she laments “the Islamization of France.”

In 1997, Bardot was convicted of “inciting racial hatred” by publishing an Open Letter in the French Daily, Le Figaro; she complained offoreign over-population,mostly by Muslim families.  

In 1998, Bardot was again convicted for “decrying the loss of French identity and tradition due to the ‘multiplication of mosques while our church bells fall silent for want of priests.’”

Street vigilantism is a mainstay of Muslim/Islamic society, it’s how they keep the people in check.

Finland should take heed as well, they’re no different from the Pakistani government where ”hate speech” laws (criticism of Islam) is concerned. The political victimization of Jussi Halla-aho (pictured below) being one prime example.


Pakistan’s blasphemy laws legitimise intolerance
Nov 29th 2014 | ISLAMABAD | From the print edition

THE killing and incarceration of people on flimsy accusations of insulting Islam has long shamed Pakistan. Hundreds, often members of religious minorities, have been ensnared by blasphemy laws that leave victims with little chance of defending themselves against malicious claims. Cowed judges are unwilling to examine evidence for fear of profanities being repeated in their courtrooms. Outside the courts, mobs can be quickly incited to acts of murder by fire-breathing mullahs.

Accusations of blasphemy soar: just one in 2011; over 100 in 2014. More than half of the 62 people murdered in the wake of blasphemy allegations since 1990 were killed in the past five years, according to figures collated by a Pakistani human-rights group that fears even to be identified. “Blasphemy” can now include spelling errors by children or throwing away a visiting-card bearing the name “Muhammad”.

On November 25th a judge in Gilgit-Baltistan sentenced the owner of Geo, Pakistan’s biggest private television channel, to 26 years in jail for broadcasting a popular Sufi song about the prophet during a light-entertainment show. (The court does not have nationwide jurisdiction, so the mogul is unlikely to ever be thrown behind bars.) The law encourages depraved vigilante attacks. In the latest, a pregnant Christian woman was beaten to death by an enraged mob.

Liberal Pakistanis blame the country’s blasphemy craze on Zia ul-Haq, an Islamist dictator who died in a plane crash in 1988. He hardened British-era blasphemy laws. Derogatory remarks about the prophet Muhammad became a capital offence. But it was his “secular” predecessor, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who amended the constitution to declare members of the Ahmedi minority non-Muslims even though they consider themselves such. Pakistan’s founder, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, once served as the defence lawyer for a carpenter who had murdered the publisher of a book said to be blasphemous.

Sharia affects the non-Muslim in every way.

This is how blasphemy laws are used against easy victims, just whisper a rumor about someone saying anything negative about Islam or its founder and you’ll have a baying mob on your hands. Islam is anti-humanity.

Christian woman convicted of blasphemy in Pakistan loses her appeal against death penalty

Asia Bibi was found guilty of making derogatory remarks about Islam during an argument with neighbours


The Lahore High Court has upheld the death penalty against a Christian woman who was convicted of blasphemy in Pakistan four years ago, as her lawyers vowed to appeal.

Asia Bibi has been on death row since November 2010 after she was found guilty of making derogatory remarks about Islam during an argument with neighbours.

Ms Bibi consistently denied the allegations against her, saying they stemmed from an argument with a group of women over a pot of water.

Ms Bibi’s lawyer, Naeem Shakir, said: “I was expecting the opposite decision. We will file an appeal to the Supreme Court of Pakistan in a few days.” Gulam Mustafa, the complainant’s lawyer, said the court’s decision was correct.

“Asia’s lawyer tried to prove that the case was registered on a personal enmity but he failed to prove that,” he said.

And yet, the Left focuses on Israel, a small country fighting for its very existence, throughout its modern existence, and yet no calls for boycotting Pakistan, no international movement to force Pakistan to ascribe to the mere basics of human dignity. This goes also for the rest of the Muslim/Arab Middle East as well.

Save Muhammad Asghar – Oppose Blasphemy Laws, Oppose Human Rights Abuses in Pakistan

We found THIS following petition, by Caroline Lynch, at the petitions site.  The introduction to the petition at states:

“Muhammad Asghar is a 68 year old from Edinburgh, currently resident in Pakistan. He has been convicted of blasphemy following a trial where his legal team were dismissed, and the state nominated replacement presented no evidence in his defence.”

This shows yet another human rights violation by Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member Pakistan.  It must be remembered that the OIC has been calling for restrictions on freedom of speech in Western countries too.  Western Governments via their support for the Istanbul Process and United Nations Human Rights Council Resolution 14/18 are actually encouraging this sort of judicial intolerance.  Furthermore they want to make this sort of thing the norm in their own countries.  When there is no freedom of expression other freedoms, including freedom of religion, become impossible.

Blasphemy is a “crime” that belongs in the Middle Ages.  It is a “crime” that suggests great intolerance on the part of those who classify it as a criminal offence.  Freedom of expression is the bedrock on which all freedom is built.

The International Civil Liberties Alliance believes that blasphemy laws are an affront to basic human dignity and should be banned globally by international law.  We call on our supporters to sign the petition.

Blasphemy laws in action.


This is how minorities in Islamic lands have been kowtowed, kept under tight lock and key, the threat of being brutalized by the Muslim majority, is always a real and present danger. Street vigilantism in one of the methods of its enforcement. This is why you should be highly suspicious of interviews of minorities in these highly intolerant and authoritarian states that give flowery praise of the regime and the system in which they live.

NOTE: Just think of the countless articles of Christian leaders in the Palestinian Arab run areas who speak about ”the occupation”, they’re doing so, not because it’s true, but from societal pressure and from centuries of dhimmitude.

Blasphemy: Christian sentenced to death in Joseph Colony case

Updated 2014-03-28 04:03:11

LAHORE: A court in Pakistan sentenced a Christian man to death for blasphemy Thursday, his lawyer said, over an incident that triggered a riot in the country’s second-largest city.

Sawan Masih was convicted of insulting the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) during the course of a conversation with a Muslim friend in the Joseph Colony neighbourhood of Lahore in March last year.

More than 3,000 Muslims rampaged through Joseph Colony, torching some 100 Christian homes, after the allegations against Masih emerged.

Naeem Shakir, one of Masih’s lawyers, told AFP: “The judge has announced the death sentence for Sawan Masih.

“We will appeal the sentence in the Lahore High Court.”Verdict and sentence were announced inside the jail where Masih was held, Shakir said.

The country has had a de facto moratorium on civilian hangings since 2008. Only one person has been executed since then, a soldier convicted by court martial.

Pakistan has extremely strict laws against defaming Islam, including the death penalty for insulting the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), and rights campaigners say they are often used to settle personal disputes.

Rawalpindi, British citizen sentenced to death for blasphemy

Mohammad Asghar , a British citizen of Pakistani origin, was arrested in 2010 for having proclaimed himself a prophet. The man suffers from mental disorders, but the Court of First Instance rejected the request for clemency submitted by lawyers. Ashghar , 70, is a resident of Edinburgh. The Scottish Government has announced that it will do all in its power to solve the case.

Islamabad ( AsiaNews) – A court in Rawalpindi has sentenced Mohammad Asghar , a British citizen aged 70 , who was arrested for blasphemy in 2010, to death. Of Pakistani origin but resident in Edinburgh, the man had written several letters to police officers in which he declared himself a prophet.

His lawyers have asked the judges for an act of clemency by stressing the man’s mental problems.  In fact he continued to proclaim himself a prophet even in court during his trial. The lawyers also submitted a medical report from the Royal Victoria Hospital in Edinburgh in which doctors explain that Asghar is a paranoid schizophrenic. The Court has refused all requests for clemency and has refused to accept the reports of British doctors. The lawyers will present to the judges the 2008 moratorium on the death penalty and hope that the ruling is overturned on appeal.

A spokesman for the Scottish government has expressed “concern” over the situation: “We urge the Pakistani authorities to respect the moratorium on the death penalty. At this difficult time we are close to the family of Asghar”. Baroness Sayeeda Hussain Warsi , an official of the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs, pointed out that the ministry is putting great pressure on the Pakistani government to resolve the case.

Jihadists execute Syrian man for ‘blasphemy’

Published Monday, December 09, 2013

Jihadist fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have executed a man in Syria’s Idlib province after accusing him of blasphemy, a monitoring group said Monday.

“ISIL executed Ibrahim Qassum, a heating oil vendor, by shooting him in the head… on allegations of blasphemy, two days after their forces arrested him,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

ISIL has its roots in the Islamic State of Iraq, Al Qaeda’s Iraqi affiliate, and has been involved in numerous alleged abuses of civilians in Syria.

The Observatory said the man was reportedly suffering from mental illness and was arrested by ISIL fighters in the city of Saraqeb, in western Syria, after they accused him of watering down his fuel.

“The fighters bought fuel from him and asked him why it was impure. He responded in the colloquial dialect by saying ‘How should I know? What am I, the God of fuel?'” the Observatory said.

The group said the fighters arrested Qassum, executed him and on Sunday threw his body, with several bullet wounds to the head, in the streets of the town.

Pakistan Blasphemy Law Getting Even Worse

By  • on December 5, 2013

According to an article in a court in Pakistan has moved to ensure that the punishment for blasphemy in that country will be death rather than life imprisonment.[1]  Life in prison is extreme for someone just practicing freedom of speech but this far worse even than that. Pakistan’s blasphemy law has been used to persecute and terrorize non-Muslims in that country.  Now it appears that things are getting even worse!

Furthermore, OIC demands and Western Governments willingness to comply with them means that this mentality will become established even in non-Muslim countries.  The calls for a global blasphemy law means that this sort of thing may become even more widespread! UNHRC Resolution 16/18 might look innocuous but this is where it leads!

Now here’s a Christian religious leader not afraid of public debate. No active Muslim would dare utter the same thing if living outside of the West, and would have second or third thoughts on saying such thing even if residing within the West.

NOTE: The same goes for the Left’s political correctness speech control, in which criticism of pet ideologies are as ‘verboten’ as blasphemy against religious beliefs.

Blasphemy law should be revoked, says church minister

The blasphemy law makes it an offense to mock religious beliefs, but there have been no successful convictions since 1946
Church minister Manu Sareen (R) says it’s about time the blasphemy law was revoked (Photo: Scanpix)

Denmark’s blasphemy law is outdated and should be abolished, the church minister, Manu Sareen (R), argued in an op-ed for Politiken newspaper over the weekend.

The law makes it punishable by a fine and four-year prison sentence for “publicly mocking or deriding the teachings or worship of a legally-existing religious community in the country”.

The law has not been successfully used since 1946, however, when a couple were given a small fine for baptising a doll at a carnival.

Undermines democracy

Sareen argues that the law undermines democracy by contradicting free speech, and no longer serves any purpose.

“Free speech and human rights are far more important than the danger that someone might feel offended if their religion is subject to mockery and derision,” Sareen wrote, adding that the blasphemy law also privileges religious beliefs over other beliefs.

Egypt’s worrying rise in criminal blasphemy cases

Criminal “defamation of religion” charges must be dropped in a number of cases across Egypt, Amnesty International said today after a teacher was convicted for insulting Islam and the Prophet Muhammad in the classroom.

A Luxor court on Tuesday fined Coptic Christian teacher Dimyana Obeid Abd Al Nour 100,000 Egyptian pounds (approx. US$14,000) for allegedly insulting Islam and the Prophet Muhammad during one of her classes. It also referred compensation claims to civil court.

Her criminal conviction bodes ill for others in Egypt who have been facing trial on similar charges which the organization said are aimed at criminalizing criticism of or insult to religious beliefs.

“Slapping criminal charges with steep fines and, in most cases, prison sentences against people for simply speaking their mind or holding different religious beliefs is simply outrageous,” said Philip Luther, Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Director.

“So-called ‘defamation of religion’ charges should not be used as a pretext to trample over people’s right to freedom of expression and conscience, and all such charges should be dropped, and the resulting convictions overturned.”

In another recent case, a 25-year-old Coptic Christian lawyer, Rumany Mourad, was also convicted on the charge of “defamation of religion”. On 1 June a court in Assiut – 360km south of Cairo – sentenced him in absentia to one year in prison, in addition to a 500 Egyptian pounds fine and 10,000 Egyptian pounds (US$1,400) in compensation to the plaintiffs.

The Dangers of Blasphemy Laws – The Situation In Bangladesh

By  • on April 9, 2013

We have written a lot here at ICLA about blasphemy laws and freedom of expression. We have focused a great deal on how the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) seeks to make Islamic blasphemy laws a permanent component of international law. UNHRC Resolution 14/18 that purports to be about religious freedom is really about its opposite – blasphemy.

The video below shows scenes from Dhaka in Bangladesh after Islamists demanded the death penalty for atheist bloggers who were deemed to have ‘insulted Islam’. That particular claim seems to be increasingly used around the world to terrorize non-Muslims as well as Muslims who the Islamists claim are not ‘pure’ enough. Such problems are caused by blasphemy laws. That such laws are actually encouraged by Western governments is a very depressing situation indeed.
