Last Friday, Dutch MP Geert Wilders cancelled his ‘Draw the Prophet Mohammad’ cartoon contest after over 10,000 supporters of the Tehreek-i-Labaik Pakistan party demanded the Pakistani government expel the Dutch Ambassador, and to end all diplomatic ties with the Netherlands.
The contest was due to be held in November, however, Mr Wilders made a statement, saying “To avoid the risk of victims of Islamic violence, I have decided to not let the cartoon contest go ahead.” A 26-year-old Pakistani Islamic Extremist was also arrested last week in The Hague after releasing a video calling for the murder of Mr Wilders.
This is everyday Islam.
The Supreme Court of India has quashed an FIR filed against actress Priya Prakash Varrier and the makers of Malayali movie ‘Oru Adar Love’. ‘Somebody in a film sings a song and you have no other job but to file a case’, the SC bench also rebuked the people behind the FIR.
The 30-second video clip in which many young actors were seen had gone viral on social media. The scene where the actress Priya Varrier winks and smiles at the male lead had become immensely popular over social media platforms and made Priya Varrier a household name all across the country.

…Extremist Muslims in Pakistan have been successful in achieving their objectives. according to the U.S. Department of State’s 2017 Report on International Religious Freedom:
“The [Pakistani] courts continued to enforce blasphemy laws, the punishment for which ranges from life in prison to the death sentence for a range of charges, including ‘defiling the Prophet Muhammad.'”
According to reports from civil society organizations, in 2017, there were at least 50 individuals imprisoned on blasphemy charges, at least 17 of whom had received death sentences, In addition, the report added, the police registered at least 17 new cases under the blasphemy laws against still other individuals.
Criminalising comments deemed offensive to any religious group intimidates those who wish to freely express their ideas and opinions, a liberty our democracy has always maintained should be available to all. Such laws are antithetical to all the West represents — and all it should be defending
The infiltration of non-Muslim countries by Islam is one of the strategies Mohammed devised when creating his ideology. His initial approach was persuasion through infiltration and, if that failed, he then adopted a military strategy through conquest and total domination. This is still Islam’s approach today. The financing of universities by Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates for gaining critical leverage and massive influence has been endemic in the United States but also other Western countries, including Australia. This enables these oppressive Islamic regimes to strategically insert academics who become prominent and thus extremely influential in corrupting the minds of gullible students.
And they’re a threat to religious liberty.
The profane long has coexisted with the sacred. During earlier ages the secular authorities often sought to protect established faiths by punishing blasphemy. Even where organized religion is dying, the rule sometimes lives on. In October Ireland will vote on whether to eliminate a clause banning blasphemy from its constitution.
The provision, and the corresponding criminal law, have not been enforced for years. But they are not without support. Five years ago the Catholic Order of the Knights of Saint Columbanus and Islamic Cultural Center both argued for retention of the measure at a constitutional convention. But almost certainly the poll will doom even the theoretical possibility of blasphemy prosecutions.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims has formally begun work on the establishment of a “working definition of Islamophobia that can be widely accepted by Muslims, political parties and the government”.

I could not care less about the ad to be honest but do find it odd that the Domino’s marketing dept. sent the Vicar a poster hoping he would hang it in the church. That’s tone deaf.
