In January 2017 four social media activists went missing. After that Muslim fascists started a huge campaign of blasphemy against them. UN & many other human rights organisations issued statement against their abduction. With international pressure they were released by state intelligence authorities. After that all of them had to leave Pakistan. Nothing was proven but still they are being called traitors & blasphemers.

Famous media persons made a huge campaign against them but they safely left Pakistan. They were not allowed to talk on media one of them personally told me that their families are still being threatened.  Pakistani channels are not allowed to talk with them about their abduction.

 

Few day back two bloggers were arrested in Karachi. According to some freethinker sources more than 21 freethinkers were sent to jail. A judge of Islamabad high court has started a huge campaign against all freethinkers and people are being accused of blasphemy on a daily basis. 

 

According to media reports two guys who were arrested in Karachi one of them is Ayaz Nizami. I know Ayaz Nizami for more than 4 years. He is the man of wisdom I have read most of his posts in my last four years. He never abused any religious personality including the prophet of Islam. He debates & criticises on the very basic issues of Islamic theology. Famous freethinkers’ website www.realisticapproch.org has already been banned in Pakistan.

2 days ago famous Pakistani freethinkers group on Facebook has been banned in Pakistan. Facebook is removing freethinker pages on Pakistani pressure. Our Pakistani authorities never condemned any jihadi page or website even last month there was a suicide attack in Lahore & an Islamic organisation accepted the responsibility on Facebook last  year the same Taliban issued fatwa against our pages on social media but nobody noticed.

Ayaz Nizami is the founder of Pakistani freethinkers page on Facebook & a very popular figure among the freethinker community on social media. 

Two days ago Muslim extremist started hashtag on twitter #HangAyazNizami in this trend religious people are expressing their views against freethinkers Atheists in Pakistan plus calling us western agents & abusing. In past many of them openly supported Taliban & other terrorist outfits but Pakistani state never took any action against them.

 

Yesterday Senate chairman Raza Rabbani agreed that sectarian & religious intolerance has been supported by Pakistani establishment.

All Muslim sects are agree to kill all the Ex Muslims leaving Islam is considered a blasphemy even the jihadi judge who ordered to start crackdown against freethinkers started weeping when some posts of freethinkers were presented before him. Last week a program was telecasted about his corruption was banned for three days. He say whether his seat is taken on corruption charges or not he will not bear any criticism against Islam & prophet. This judge has become a hero. People are posting his images and showing their love for him. 

People want freethinkers to be trialled under black blasphemy law. They are abusing and reporting all freethinkers. They tried to report my page after that i unpublished it on Facebook & waiting for the good time many people are deactivating their accounts. All freethinker atheist community around the globe is raising voice in the favour of Ayaz Nizami I think if UN takes notice of this state crime it would be very helpful for the safety of all free thinkers otherwise this victimisation of freethinkers would never stop in Pakistan

 

As Micheal Nugent says "You have rights-- you beliefs do not". We should respect each other but if somebody criticises my beliefs & my ideology compels me to kill him, then I don’t  think I need any prophet, I need a psychiatrist.

More on the quote from Michael Nugent in a speech to the FFRF.

Comment by Pope Beanie on March 27, 2017 at 2:42pm
Great speech from Nugent.

I keep coming back (even though this wasn't his theme, explicitly) to: "What right does any man have to declare what God or Allah wants?". I have no intention of disproving "His" existence... I just want to know why the fuck do people fall prey to what other men--other human beings declare about God/Allah or even what is the god's real name?

Men make shit up to control other men and women, and that is one fact that no religion or politition in the world denies. Invoking a purported divine power stems more from man's weakness than his strengths.

Micheal is a nice man i watched his last speech on youtube.

In Pakistan people are told to read quran in arabic otherwise this can distract us & when somebody comments on any verses which goes against the morality of 21st century is considered a blasphemer.

The ideology which allows ppl to kill on the name of Allah or God must be thrown in rubbish

We don't release any personal information. If there is a way for your authorities to trace your ip via TA then we are unaware of it. However, if it helps, I will personally create an account for you using my IP address and hand it over to you to change passwords etc. and use. Just send me a PM :)

oh srega...you're so sweet to offer. I think there is just the general fear in the air. We have the Pakistani twitter asking for the heads of Ayaz Nizami. And the state is apparently approaching fb and other social media networks in tracing all these "anti-state" voices. It's interesting how there is this holly trinity, state-religion-military, offend one and you offend all. It's just beyond fucked up. Religion does not make for a gracious lover, the state of Pakistan really needs to stop sharing it's bed.

You could also try using Tor. It helps once it is used properly.

Comment by Zombie Athiest on March 29, 2017 at 1:29pm

@Reg The Fronkey Farmer: Tor has been a life saver for me, in more way than one. Back when I was still in questioning phase and wanted to look up more debate/dialogue and point by point unpacking of Islam, I used tor. I had found out that most of the websites which had this content were not accessible to me. Then Tor came to the rescue. It wouldn't be far from the truth to suggest that Tor helped me not find my god :)

Great. I helped several atheists in Saudi to set it up and to read books online without downloading them. BTW I can also create an a/c with an EU IP address if you wish.
