Strangely, I feel as though I have made a lot of “well, duh!” article titles in recent time, but one cannot help but call out the obvious in the case that I am about to discuss.
While I could go over the religion’s gruesome and violent history, not to mention the incessant attacks against the state of Israel, such as the record-breaking launch of 400 rockets against Israel (which reportedly killed some Palestinian residents), I feel compelled to cover a different case entirely. That case is the Asia Bibi (Aasiya Noreen) blasphemy case that originated in 2010.
Recently, this case has made some news, particularly about Bibi’s release and asylum, which Italy has reportedly offered, while Great Britain has refused to offer asylum to the woman. However, to better understand this whole thing, one must start from the beginning and offer an explanation of the entire case.
Asia Bibi (I will stick to this name since it’s easier than writing out her actual name), is a Pakistani Christian woman who was convicted of blasphemy in 2010 and was sentenced to death by hanging.
Reportedly, in June of 2009, Bibi was accused of blasphemy after an argument with co-workers while they were harvesting berries. Due to that accusation, she was arrested and imprisoned, with a Pakistani judge sentencing her to death by hanging in November of 2010.
Obviously, that hanging never occurred, likely because the case was pretty faulty and she was eventually acquitted by the Pakistani Supreme Court on Halloween of 2018, citing that “material contradictions and inconsistent statements of the witnesses… cast a shadow of doubt on the prosecution’s version of facts.”
I don’t know how Pakistan’s judicial system works, but it appears to be at least somewhat similar to our own in that the rule of law emphasizes presumption of innocence. Then again, a Pakistani lower court did sentence her to death by hanging, even though there likely was still insufficient evidence to justifiably convict her, so I doubt there is much more similarity between our judicial systems.
But in any case, Asia Bibi was acquitted by the Pakistani Supreme Court, which has led to protests by Islamists and, subsequently, calls for her death. Even advocates of her such as Minorities minister Shahbaz Bhatti and Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer have been assassinated due to their advocacy for Bibi and opposing of blasphemy laws.
Reportedly, Muslim cleric Maulana Yousaf Qureshi announced a bounty of 500,000 Pakistani rupees that would be awarded to anyone who would kill her.
And reportedly, “more than 60 people have been killed by mobs after blasphemy accusations since 1990” in Pakistan.
So due to this, to the fact that more than 60 people have been killed by mobs due to accusations, to the fact that Bibi was on death row for 8 years before her acquittal, to the fact that advocates for Bibi and opponents of the blasphemy laws have been assassinated, we really have to be an insanely ignorant, stupid, or insane people to believe this is the “religion of peace”.
Let me share with you a quote from Wilson Chowdry, chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association, talking about Britain’s decision to not offer asylum to Asia Bibi: “I’ve been led to believe that the U.K. government had concerns that her moving to the U.K. would cause security concerns and unrest among certain sections of the community and would also be a security threat to British embassies abroad which might be targeted by Islamist terrorists.”
Gee, I wonder why certain people in the U.K. would not be okay with Bibi moving there. I wonder why there would be unrest and why there would be security concerns, particularly for British embassies abroad.
Maybe because these people follow a death cult that gets really ticked off by anyone who dares make a joke about their “sacred prophet” Mohammed? Maybe because said “prophet” was the prototypical Islamist terrorist who slaughtered his way to power in the Middle East to establish the closest thing to an actual religion Satan has ever gotten?
Of course, that’s not to say every single Muslim is a murderous psychopath, but this seems to be a big thing in Islam. Terrorism and extremism seems to be a massive problem stemming from Islam. Christianity does not have this problem (regardless of what the fake news media might want to say). Judaism doesn’t have this problem. Hinduism has this problem, but nowhere near to this level. Islam has a massive problem with extremism. And the thing about it is that these extremists are considered “conservatives”. Not conservatives like you and I. Conservatives in that they follow the more conservative teachings of Islam.
And if that’s the case, doesn’t that say a lot more about Islam than it does about the extremists? Islam IS A RELIGION OF EXTREMISM!
While there may be some Muslim liberals who might argue that the blasphemy laws are too brutal (which they are), that still indicates that, as it was founded, Islam is a death cult not suitable for civilized people.
If these extremists are what they would call “conservatives”, then that just tells me the religion is extremely violent and narrow-minded.
Say what you may want to say about there being Muslims who disagree with the blasphemy laws in Pakistan and elsewhere. Say what you may want to say about there being “moderate” Muslims who don’t support this sort of thing. But let me tell you this: if the people that are extremists are the ones that more closely follow the teachings of Mohammed and the Quran, you cannot make an argument that Islam is a religion of peace. As it was founded, it is the religion of death, of war, of bloodshed and of savagery.
I don’t just say that Islam is a death cult to make a generalization. Like I said, not every single Muslim person is like this. But the reason I say it’s a death cult is because its founding principles are about forcing others to follow Islam and those that would not would be executed.
It is a hateful religion, a false religion, and nothing the Left, the media, or anyone else tells me could make me think for a second that it is a religion of peace. If it’s a religion of anything, it’s a religion of evil.
Now, regarding Asia Bibi, she has reportedly been offered asylum by Italy, Canada and other Western countries, so she might have a happy ending to a decade-long battle against irrational hatred from deranged Muslims.
