Saudi Arabia vs. Iran / Saudi Arabia Pushing the Envelope
« Last post by GlobalAdministrator on September 18, 2019, 10:28:22 PM »
Apparently, Saudi Arabia has been really pushing the envelope with these attacks on Aramco.

It really wants the US to launch a military attack on Iran.

A ban on eating dogs has been blocked by the Justice Ministry for fear of offending people in the Far East. Political correctness gone amuck. I thought this was fake news at first.

Pakistan / Sindh, Hindu principal accused of blasphemy
« Last post by GlobalAdministrator on September 16, 2019, 07:59:02 PM »
A Hindu principal (Notan Mal), the principal, has headed the Ghotki public school for 30 years. However, the father of one of his students accused him of blaspheming the name of the prophet Muhammad. As news of the accusation spread, a crowd took to the street and started a rampage which ended with the destruction of three Hindu temples and a private minority school. Police were called out to try and control the rioting and various activists both Muslim and Hindu are protesting against the violence.

Pakistan / Pakistan's Blasphemy Law
« Last post by GlobalAdministrator on September 16, 2019, 06:40:42 PM »
Pakistan's Blasphemy laws are serious business in the Islamic Republic. The Pakistan Penal Code, the main criminal code of Pakistan, punishes blasphemy against any recognized religion, providing penalties ranging from a fine to death.

Between 1980 and 1986, the laws were expanded in order to make them more severe and give them a more pronounced Islamic character by the military government of General Zia-ul Haq. These laws also had their intended purpose of further stripping away the Muslim character of the Ahmadi minority. On September 7,  1974, the Pakistan Constitution was amended by inserting a paragraph that explictly stated that anyone recognizing religious prophets or reformers after the prophet Muhammad were considered non-Muslims.

From 1967 to 2014, over 1,300 people have been accused of blasphemy, with Muslims constituting most of those accused. Between 1987 and 2017, at least 1500 people with charged with blasphemy. At least 75 of those people involved in accusations of blasphemy were murdered. In addition prominent people who opposed
the blasphemy law were also killed.

Critics have complained that these laws have been abused to not only persecute religious minorities but to also settle personal vendettas. Changes in the blasphemy laws have been strongly resisted by Islamic parties. While charges of blasphemy have been leveled against Muslims who have harrassed non-muslims. But these cases don't carry the same kind of penalty .
