Fanatical Frenzy Watch: Paki Lawyers shower assassin of governor opposed to blasphemy law with rose petals

Pakistan, where  lawyers become assassins to ‘protect’ Islam:

500 Islamic clerics and scholars misunderstand Islam, praise murderer of Pakistani governor who opposed blasphemy law

“Qadri had ‘revived the 14-century-old traditions of Islam’ and made Muslims around the world proud,” said their statement. They must be a gang of greasy Islamophobes.

“Salman Taseer’s killer an Islamic warrior: Pakistani clerics,” from PTI, January 5:

Paki Assassin ‘Will Go Directly to Heaven’…

And another group of clerics warned no one should pray or “express regret” for the loss of Salman Taseer, who died essentially for committing “blasphemy” against the blasphemy law. They said, “the supporter is as equally guilty as one who committed blasphemy.”

In barely two days, the wide reporting of this single case may have done more than any before it to rip the fig leaf of “moderation” off of Pakistan, and to show what a uselessly relative label “moderate” ultimately is.

As one Pakistani radio host said, “Extremist thought has become so mainstream that what we need to question in Pakistan is what people think constitutes extremism now.” “Cheers and tears in Pakistan after assassination,” by Sebastian Abbott for theAssociated Press, January 5:

In a shockingly blunt endorsement of Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer’s assassination, Ameer Jamat-e-Islami in Sindh Asadullah Bhutto has declared that the assassin will directly go to the “seventh heaven”.  “Whoever has killed him is a pious man and will go directly to heaven,” replied Bhutto to a question put forward by this correspondent.

  1. For those following pakistan politics this is no surprise. Pakistan should be isolated until the islamists are brought under control, and people of other faiths are not persecuted. Why do we not treat islamists with the same brush that they use to treat others????
