Pakistan acquits 112 in case of torching Christian homes over blasphemy rumour

A Pakistani court acquitted 112 suspects in the 2013 torching of hundreds of Christian homes in the eastern city of Lahore over a rumour that one of the residents there had blasphemed, a lawyer said on Sunday.

In March 2013, more than 125 homes in Lahore’s Josep Colony were burned by a mob of more than 3,000 Muslims responding to rumours that a local Christian man, Sawan Masih, had made derogatory remarks about the Prophet Mohammad.

No one was killed in the incident but there was widespread damage to the property of the mostly destitute Christians living in the neighbourhood. Two churches and dozens of Bibles were also desecrated in the attack.

The Canonization of an Islamist Killer

When an assassin is hailed is a hero while the reformist governor he murdered is reviled, there is a very long way to go to defeat Islamist extremism.

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Pakistan to mourn the death of Mumtaz Qadri, who was executed for killed a former governor over anti-blasphemy legislation.

Now, a shrine is being built to idolize the killer.

“It has hardly been a year since his execution yet the process of his canonisation is utterly complete,” writes Adil Pasha, a journalist for Dawn that visited the site.

Palestinian Cleric: Muslims Should Seize Pakistani Nukes, Destroy Israel in ‘One or Two’ Strikes

Muslims should seize Pakistan’s nuclear weapons and use them to destroy Israel, a Palestinian cleric declared in a sermon delivered at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque last week.

According to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Sheikh Abd Al-Salam Abu Al-Izz called on “the nation of Islam” to “rise and take its matters into its own hands” following Donald Trump’s recent election as the next US president.

Douglas Murray: “First They Came for Asia Bibi”

11701

The same week that (Humza) Yousaf was extolling the idea that Britain is a proto-Nazi state and Pakistan a potential safe-haven, the Pakistani authorities saw the latest round of the interminable and unforgivable saga of Asia Bibi. This is the woman who has been on death-row in Pakistan for no crime other than the crime of being a Christian. Bibi has been awaiting execution for five years, purely because a neighbour claimed that Bibi had insulted Mohammed during an argument.

…While the Conservative party in Westminster is portrayed by these supposed defenders of human rights as some kind of Nazi offshoot, life is, in fact, unequalled in Britain for being good for people of any faith or background. It would be hard to find a society anywhere that has been more tolerant of mass immigration or tried to make life good for the immigrants who arrive, whatever background they are from. Pakistan, on the other hand, is a country which could hardly have a worse record on all of these matters. It is a country where racism and ethnic and religious hatred are rife. People of the “wrong” background, caste, or ethnicity experience infinitely more racism in Pakistan than in any country in Europe. Even people who are the “wrong” type of Muslim, such as Ahmadiyya Muslims, are the subject of constant and routine persecution and bigotry. The persecution of Ahmadiyya Muslims is so rife in Pakistan that this July, it even spilled out onto the streets of Glasgow in the murder of an Ahmadiyyan shopkeeper, Asad Shah.

…As it happens, the case of Asia Bibi has now been delayed yet again because the judge has removed himself from the case. He has done so because he knows that if he were to release Asia Bibi, he will himself be assassinated in the manner of the late Punjab governor Salman Taseer. While last week’s hearing was going on, hundreds of riot police had to be deployed outside the courthouse in Islamabad. This was because everything about Asia Bibi and her case brings out mobs in Pakistan; thousands of Pakistani nationals have said that if Asia Bibi were ever released, they would kill her.

Sectarian violence in Kashmir is increasingly spilling over onto the streets of Britain

Two of the world’s nuclear powers almost went to war recently to little notice in the UK. And yet the group accused of being the spark for the violence and the countries involved are ones with deep historical links to this country.

Violence in South Asia has a habit of resonating in Britain, be it in the form intra-communitarian clashes, terrorist violence or familial murder. And while it is unclear in what way the current clashes in Kashmir will resonate, Britain’s historical connection with South Asia mean that rising violence and sectarianism over there will have an impact here.
