Paki UN Delegate: "Assassination of Christian Minister Nothing to do With Islam"

What happened:

Pakistan’s only Christian cabinet minister, Shahbaz Bhatti, was accused of blasphemy after denouncing the cold-blooded murder of two Catholic brothers in handcuffs outside a courtroom last year.   On Wednesday, Islamic fundamentalists succeeded in carrying out the death sentence, in accordance with Sharia law.

Paki UN delegate Ahmed rubs it:

its “not helpful” to tell the truth. Its “counterproductive” to connect the dots:

“It is (more) important to prevent the deliberate campaign of defamation of Islam and its Prophet (PBUH),” he said. (AFP)

Updates from the RoP:

Don’t link minister’s murder to blasphemy: Pakistan

GENEVA: Pakistan on Thursday called on other countries not to link killing of Federal Minister for Minorities Affairs, Shahbaz Bhatti, to the wider issue of blasphemy.

Bhatti, who had called for changes to blasphemy laws, was shot in broad daylight in Islamabad. Taliban said they had assassinated him as a punishment for blasphemy.

“We believe it would not be helpful to link the highly regrettable killing squarely in the context of defamation (of religion) and blasphemy,” Pakistani delegate Asim Ahmad said in a speech to the United Nations Human Rights Council.

In the rights council, Pakistan speaks for the 57-nation Organisation of Islamic States (OIC), which is campaigning hard with support from African states and others like Russia and Cuba for what critics dub “an international blasphemy law”.

Ahmad said freedom of speech could not justify defamation and blasphemy. “It is important to prevent the deliberate campaign of defamation of Islam and its Prophet (PBUH),” he said. afp

‘Important’ for whom?

  1. Since they have a very different mindset and a different set of rules, do they really believe what they’re saying, because they use a different list of definitions?

  2. We just need to plug the interface to get a clear reading of their messages. Of course, we don’t need any interface since we already have the codes to convert what they’re saying, into the real meanings of their messages.
