Now in Pakistan Atheist & secular groups have become a headache for religious authorities people are posting lot of material about Islam & questioning it. As we know the one who questions & criticises islam on its basics is considered a blasphamer.
I believe that black blasphemy law must be abolished from the constitution because its been misused many times & if somebody talks & debate on it is also considered a blasphemer.
In Pakistan nobody is allowed to question the Islamic history. Its considered a sin & Religious authorities know very well that if it is exposed their bread & butter on the name of Allah would stop.
TODAY Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiquie of Islamabad High Court has remarked that those involved in uploading blasphemous content on social media are terrorist. When women are killed kids are raped in madrasas such people never issue any statement.
During that he got into tears. He said If government can’t block such blasphemous pages then Pakistan Tele Communication authority should be shut down. Then He ordered Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar to appear before the court in person.
This judge considers Mumtaz Qadri (the killer of late Salman Taseer) as a hero he also issued a statement against valentines Day.
On September 17, 2012, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority blocked youtube in Pakistan because the trailer of Sam Bacile’sInnocence of Muslims was not removed then in January 2016 this ban was lifted.
I think if Government of Pakistan bans social media on religious pressure it would be a attack on freedom of expression.
Pakistan is a country where we cant openly discuss our societal issues. A Garrison State where nobody is allowed to criticize the state policies & religion. In this case social media is the light of hope which allows people to exchange & debate new ideas & thoughts.
The People who criticize the Islamic jihadi worm they are bullied online even such people are abducted by the state as we know 5 bloggers were abducted in January 2017 then on international pressure they were released one of them is still missing.
Mostly Muslims clerics in Pakistan never respect any other idea & belief but they always demand respect for the ideology of seventh century & State provides shelter to them.
Few days back a newspaper named Ummat discussed about Pakistani atheists , freethinkers & requested authorities to take action my name is also mentioned in this news & the new pain is coming from the same nerve.
