Down’s Syndrome Girl’s Arrest for Blasphemy in Pakistan

Pages: 1 2

Besides Christians, Pakistan’s Hindu community is another religious minority under fire from majority Muslim hardliners. Persecution of Hindus has reached such proportions in Pakistan that long-time Hindu residents are now leaving for India. They know the government will not, and probably can’t, protect them. As a result, Pakistan, meaning “Land of the Pure,” may soon become just that. A country purified of all other religions.

On top of religious discrimination, Pakistani Hindus are tired of the extortion, kidnappings, ransoms, as well as forced conversions and marriages to Muslims of their teenaged daughters after their abduction. One such unfortunate Hindu victim, only a teenager, gave a heartbreaking and tragic account in the English-language Pakistani newspaper Dawn of her kidnapping and forced marriage to a Muslim after being told her family would be harmed if she did not co-operate. She recognized her abductor. He was a Muslim guard at the Hindu temple.

But how can non-Muslim religious minorities in Pakistan expect protection and justice from authorities in this land of hatred when even non-Muslim minorities are not protected? The Ahmadis and Shiites are also targeted by Sunni extremists for death. Just recently, armed Sunni terrorists wearing army uniforms stopped a bus and after examining the passengers’ papers executed 20 people –all Shiites. In the past six months, two similar incidents involving the murder of bus-travelling Shiites have also occurred. These latest 20 victims now join the more than 1,000 Shiites murdered each year in Pakistan, some of them by the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a terrorist group dedicated to killing Shiites.

Homicidal hatred is, however, not just the preserve of minority religious groups in Pakistan. In Karachi, deadly ethnic and political violence between Pakistan’s four main ethnic groups – Punjabs, Sindhs, Pashtuns and Mohajirs (Muslim immigrants from India who came to Pakistan at the time of the 1947 partition) – has been going on for several decades, making the city one of the most dangerous and violent in the world. Riots and killings have occurred with such frequency in Karachi that the police have sometimes lost control and the army has had to be called in to restore order.

And the Pakistani Taliban (TTP) also contributes to the country’s rising tide of chaos, violence and death by attacking anyone and anything opposing the establishment of an Islamist state. It was reported that last November alone saw 1,700 people killed in terrorist or insurgent attacks. And that was a good month. It seems that at least once a week Pakistani newspapers report a TTP suicide bomber slaughtering men, women and children, often indiscriminately and often in a mosque. Even more disturbing is that the bomber is often just a child recruited by the TTP death cult.

But at the top of the list of those who suffer the most in Pakistan’s hate-filled society are women. Besides having schools for girls blown up in the tribal areas, the prevailing misogyny subjects them to honor murders, forced marriages, marital violence, and mutilations and rapes as part of a family, clan or tribal revenge code. They are sometimes regarded as having such little worth that they are used as commodities to settle clan feuds and even gambling debts.

“It is near impossible to comprehend the level of hatred that rules the minds of those people who are terrorising Pakistan today,” a Dawn editorial reads.

And that, perhaps, sums up best the fragmented state of present-day Pakistani society, an unfeeling incubator of terror that contains little, if any, concept of humanity.

    A child with down's syndrome does not the mental capacity to understand what the word blashempy even means. This is so typical of Islamics though,to attack the most helpless,vunerable of people. They are the most cruel,evil people ever just about. They are blackmailing most of the civilized and western world through their hatred, violence,terrorism and murder. I honestly believe many in the West who say they are sympathetic to them, are only doing so out of fear.

  • sdeakins

    Sounds a lot like Chicago.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Duh, yeah, honor killings, forced conversions to pisslam, blasphemy laws, state sponsored persecution of anyone non-muslime that all sounds just like Chicago to me. Or maybe what you really mean is that this is what you HOPE Chicago will be?

      • GFM2012

        I think he was trying to point out that Chicago has a well-deserved reputation for senseless violence due to its high murder rate and corrupt governance.

        • Kufar Dawg

          Any corruption seen in Chicago up to now is NOTHING in comparison to what goes on in an islamofascist state like Pakistain.

    Like wild hyenas do when one of their own becomes sick…they attack, kill and devour it in a frenzy. At least they have an excuse being wild animals.
    These Muslim religious fanatics have no excuse. They're not animals, they are human…aren't they? Hello?

  • cheese_burger

    The more Islam that the Mooze imbibes, the less human the Mooze becomes. The concept of 'a decent Muslim' is a contradiction in terms. Muslims, as a whole, are descending into something indecent. Mohammad was a Monster, and it was his twisted, evil mind that invented the Koran. Muslims consider themselves to be demigods by virtue of birth, or conversion:

    Demigod: A being with partial or lesser divine status, such as a minor deity, the offspring of a god and a mortal, or a mortal raised to divine rank. A person who is greatly admired or feared.

    The Mooze worships itself, and Satan, equally.

    Mooze are born human, just like everyone else, regardless of their moronic beliefs, and from that point forward, they devolve into what we are now seeing in Pakistan, and all other regions where Mooze congregate in masses… raving, mindless clinical insanity.

    Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.

    Pakistan, Sudan, Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia etc etc…..terror, violence, misery, ignorance, mob hysteria, more terror, more violence, bombings, slavish conformism, more violence, poverty, desperation, infant mortality….yeah, let's import this to our country.

  • hammar

    Everyone must accept Jesus Christ Lord and God ….your Savior, even muslims in Pakistan and everyone around the world….time is moving very quickly now and very violently. Thinking and doing the right thing in faith and in life must be accomplished today.

      Jesus introduced the concept of Hell, which is not found in the Old Testament. Nothing could conceivably be more merciless. Furthermore, He said that faith is necessary for salvation, mening you can't know the rules until you are already in Hell and it's too late.

      • GFM2012

        He may have introduced the concept, but that doesn't imply he built the place! Leeuwenhoek discovered bacteria in 1670, but he is not to blame for the myriad diseases associated with them. Keep in mind that Jesus' family ran a much more hospitable establishment, with infinite mercy.

        • g_jochnowitz

          Since He is part of the Trinity, He is simultaneously all of God and one-third of God. Of course He built Hell. He was not simply hunting for information the way Leeuwenhoek was.

      • Kufar Dawg

        Did he? I believe the concept of Sheol predates Yeshua's existence, as well as that of a bifurcated Sheol.

        • g_jochnowitz

          Sheol is not a place of punishment. Even those writers who mentioned a bifurcated Sheol, with the good and evil people separated from each other, do not talk of punishment–and certainly not of eternal torment.

          • Kufar Dawg

            What about this from wikipedia though? Is Gehenna the same as Sheol?

            "By at least the late rabbinical period, Gehenna was viewed as the place of ultimate punishment, exemplified by the rabbinical statement "the best of physicians are destined to Gehenna." (M. Kiddushin 4:14); also described in Assumption of Moses and 2 Esdras.[7] The term is derived from ge-hinnom, a valley near Jerusalem originally used as a location for human sacrifices to the idol Moloch:"

          • g_jochnowitz

            The late rabbinical period is post-New Testament.
            I have been to ge-hinnom, which is becoming suburbanized. It was as hot as hell there.

    • Doris

      Absolutely! Amen!_

      • Doris

        Absolutely cruel to the child because of her disability and her parents. I am not making any statements about anything else but the child. Jesus please watch over your people amen!

    Huntington famously said that Islam had "bloody borders". Where it has contact with a non-Muslim population, there's conflict and blood is spilled. Burma, China, Philippines, Nigeria, Thailand … it's a long list. Within its borders there's plenty of blood spilled too.

  • Ghostwriter

    I'm just glad I don't live in Pakistan.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Or Kashmir, or Assam, or Bangladesh, or Somalia, or Syria, or Egypt, or Iraq, or Iran, or the Sudan, or Tunisia, or Libya or any of the other 48 other states of the OIC.

  • Zionista

    The palestinians are well known for encouraging the mentally disabled to blow themselves up (and take as many Jews with them). They also push women and girls they don't consider marriage material to do the same – what a 'culture'.

    • g_jochnowitz

      They have faith.

  • Job

    Now, God is love..what love is in these acts? torturing innocent humanity,even children! Leave God aside,even humanity wont allow this. Jesus Christ is the way, Christians wont kill you for burning a Bible page;they will pray for your salvation.

    Pakistan is a violent nation and is a great threat to world peace. Its desire to incite and cause unrest and terror in the hearts of the oppressed and weak is of great concern. We sometimes wonder do these people have a mind? If so why are their minds being so crowded as though they cannot differentiate between good and evil. What image have they being crafted into that has turn them into heartless human being. Satan has led them captive. We recognize this by their fruit.
