Pakistan sentences man to death for blasphemy on Facebook

Recommended Posts

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.


As you can see from the above highlighted text. The people of Pakistan live in constant censorship of opinion, With severe punishments for those who violate this. It is this freedom crushing movement of Islam once again but sadly it is something we should all be reading up on and paying attention to. For they are coming to the west. And they are bringing this pattern of thought with them. Between that and the communist left we are in for one hell of a ride!

Facebook posting / real world arrest for saying a word is the groundwork of total internet policing.... You think the internet is free but if you live in fear of saying anything on facebook but you allow it then do not be surprised if you start asking the next obvious question.... Where does it end?
