Pakistan sentences man to death for blasphemy…….

So how is this any difference to what European governments are doing to their own citizens for daring to criticize Islam, save being sentenced to death?

Even mere accusations are enough to spark mass uproar and mob justice.

So tell me exactly why we need people from this region of the world who are willing to murder you at the drop of a hat for ‘offending’ their sensibilities?

Pakistan sentences man to death for blasphemy on Facebook

By Mubasher Bukhari | LAHORE, PAKISTAN

A Pakistani counter-terrorism court has sentenced to death a man who allegedly committed blasphemy on Facebook, a government prosecutor said on Sunday, the first time someone has been handed the death penalty for blaspheming on social media.


The conviction of Taimoor Raza, 30, follows a high-profile crackdown against blasphemy on social media by the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.


Blasphemy is a highly sensitive topic in Muslim-majority Pakistan, where insulting the Prophet Mohammad is a capital crime for which dozens are sitting on death row. Even mere accusations are enough to spark mass uproar and mob justice.


Shafiq Qureshi, public prosecutor in Bahawalpur, about 500km (300 miles) south of provincial capital Lahore, said Raza was convicted for allegedly making derogatory remarks against Prophet Mohammad, his wives and companions.


“An anti terrorism court of Bahawalpur has awarded him the death sentence,” Qureshi told Reuters.” It is the first ever death sentence in a case that involves social media.”
