Pakistan authorities want Facebook founder’s head on a platter

You may not like some of the things Mark Zuckerberg has done to Facebook (especially their fucked up lack of privacy), but I doubt most of you are seriously considering hurting this dude. Then again, you aren’t the government of Pakistan, which seems intent on trying to prosecute the goofy CEO for his involvement in hosting the “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” Facebook page.

It’s become pretty clear the West’s concept of free speech is in direct opposition to Islam’s powerful insecurities about itself. The whole point of the exercise was to show exactly how intolerant, stupid, and violent this religion is. So far, it’s succeeded brilliantly.

If you think I’m making this shit up, just check out Pakistan’s Section 295-C of their penal code:

Use of derogatory remark etc, in respect of the Holy Prophet, whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable for fine.

Wait, they kill you AND fine you for disparaging their prophet? Are they going to come and collect the money posthumously, or are you expected to pay for your own execution? That’s cold, man!

    And to think that all this time I thought that Islam was a religion of peace…. Fhtagn! Even the great and terrible Cthulhu (May I Be Eaten First) treats heretics and blasphemers with more class.

    Damn it, I knew i shouldn’t have taken the brown acid… Fluffy bunnies, fluffy bunnies, fluffy bunnies…..

    I could, however, appreciate the irony of delivering the founder of Facebook the heads of Pakistani authorities on a platter.

    He didn’t host it. He had it taken down and users had to make another page that wasn’t getting a good following until the next day. After the event passed, no one really cared… except Pakistan.
