Brutality in the Name of Blasphemy

Time and again, brave forces try to amend the blasphemy law, but in Pakistan, it is considered a “sacred manuscript,” something not to be touched or talked even about. Those who dared paid a heavy price. A Christian woman has suffered in prisons of Pakistan since 2010, when she was allegedly involved in the blasphemy case over a small incident of drinking water from the same pot as her Muslim co-workers. After an argument about this, the Muslim women claimed that she denigrated the prophet of Islam. She was arrested, convicted and sentenced to death. The conviction was later upheld by the Lahore High Court. You can read more at: www.clarionproject.org... I ask, what is wrong with this religion?.....

The same thing as with other organized religions, it has far too many radicals in it who cannot practice the simple paradigm of live and let live.

The problem is that the government cannot form a truly secular state. The army has always been the most reliable and stable institution there. It needs to pave the way for modernization.

Religion and government should never mix. Also I think religious folk should be mixed in with others. It always ends up very bad when one religion takes up most of the nation.

Especially when its a religion like Islam and the state it is in now. Im not sure if islam can be truely modernized like christianity is in america. Modernized where they sacrifice the strict and harsh nature of a religion, in favor of open mindedness.

I understand parts of Pakistan are run by the Taliban and can see why so many want to leave.

The sheer nonsense of allowing a Muslim woman to claim that a simple act of drinking water from the same pot was an act that denigrated the prophet and for this to be upend by the Lahore High Court and carrying a death sentence shows just how far Pakistan has been taken over. A large amount of aid goes to that country yet I see the police force is only tiny with very little power or equipment. Surely if aid goes in then that is where it needs to be spent and not in any way helping the extremists who are taking that country over.

They hide behind religion to hide their absolute failures as a human.

If there was one true God linked to only one religion then why bother with that whole free will thing? I have had it up to here with religion. I wonder how far we could advance as a species if religion and all its death and destruction were outlawed.

In the words of a smart woman -
"I don't object to the concept of a deity, but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance."
