Life imprisonment is not enough for blasphemers; the only permissible punishment is the death penalty, this according to a recent ruling by Pakistan’s Federal Sharia Court, which struck down Section 295 C of the Pakistan Penal Code, leaving the death penalty as the only possible form of punishment. Together with Sections 295 A and 295 B, Section 295 C constituted the so-called ‘blasphemy law’.
In the UK non-Lahore Ahmadi Muslims always tell us that their interpretation of Islam allows minorities complete freedom. Yet when we look at any country where Sunnis are in a majority we find the situation is totally the opposite.
For example, it is common knowledge that in Pakistan Sunnis falsely accuse members of minorities of insulting the Holy Prophet (pbuh) or the Holy Quran. If the accused is set free by the courts he or she is usually then killed by a mob – so much for rule of law.
Now the Pakistan Federal Shariat Court has decided that anyone convicted of blasphemy shall be killed for their “crime” and no other punishment is possible.
