The discussions and views expressed on different English language blogs and websites comes as no surprise. At least I have been expecting all this media drones attacks on Islamic Law after the riots. Which true Muslim will not condemn attack on any minority, Hindu, Christian or Jews or person believing in any other faith, even if the member of the same has committed the crime of blasphemy? The law of the land doesn’t allow individual or group of person or any party to give the punishment to anyone for committing the blasphemy act. No one has pointed out that the attackers, if they were Muslims, have not only violated the Pakistani Laws but also the blasphemy Laws which give the right of awarding punishment to the state and not individual.
The elements waging a Media War on Islamic and blasphemy law have been successful as according to Daily Times Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani hinted at a review of the blasphemy law.
This comes as no surprise but shocking is the fact that some of the strong believers in Khatam-e-Nabuat to believe in which is indispensable for Muslim, have been made to believe that blasphemy law is responsible for suppressing and attacking the minorities in Pakistan so the Law should be scraped out. One of our friends Dr Awab has put all his effort to prove that blasphemy laws and Khatm-e-Nabauat’s “fanatics” are the real problem.(see here, here , here , here , here , here , especially here ) although he himself had written a post on or say against the successor of one the “victim”( see the screen Shot of Dawn page on the timeline of blasphemy) of blasphemy Law.
While writing the timeline of blasphemy cases Dawn has call Yousaf Kazzab a Muslim cleric who had been vocal in condemning religious extremism. This is not surprising as our English Press and English readers have been trained on how to attack the blasphemy laws if grounds are made for it.
Details of Kazzab and Zaid Hamid story can be found here.
It is believed that the present situation is the creation of Liberal fascists who fashioned it in order to defame the blasphemy laws so that the same could be worn out. Had all those discussing the issue been sincere, they would have condemned the attackers and not the blasphemy Law.
