Moderate Uncle Murders Niece

Death To Blasphemy

The Christian Post:

The leader of the World Council of Churches is urging Pakistan’s president and prime minister to initiate measures toward the repeal of their controversial blasphemy laws, which critics say are often abused by extremists.

Sometimes, a malicious accusation is enough for those who want to do "the good deed".

Tveit’s letter comes four days after two Christians accused of blasphemy in Pakistan were killed as they left a courthouse.

On Monday, masked gunmen opened fire on Pastor Rashid Emmanuel and his brother, Sajid Emmanuel, as police were transporting them from the court in Faisalabad to jail.

According to Compass Direct News, the brothers were expected to be exonerated soon after handwriting experts on July 14 notified police that signatures on papers denigrating Islam’s Prophet Muhammad did not match those of the accused.

These Christians were accused of dissing Muhammad. The police got evidence to prove that they had done no such thing. Still, they were murdered.

“We also urge Your Excellency to initiate measures towards the repeal of the Blasphemy Laws and to secure the rights and dignity of all individuals in Pakistan society,” Tveit added before concluding.

That will do little good. It isn't the Blasphemy Law which is the problem but the Blasphemy Mindset. As is clear, the Pakistani state did not kill those Christians. The Blasphemy Law could be repealed today and we'll still have Christians, and other non-Muslims, getting slaughtered because of accusations from wicked Pakistanis.
