Islam is totally reasonable

You remember Pakistan right? It’s the country currently being ruled by a military dictator who happens to be nice and chummy to Islamic groups who like to get women sentenced to death for blasphemy.

They seem to be profoundly confused about what to do regarding the sacredness of the name “Muhammad”, as they’ve recently arrested a man for throwing out a business card of someone who shared the namesake. You can’t make up something this fucking ridiculous.

The case began Friday when Muhammad Faizan, a pharmaceutical company representative, visited Valiyani’s clinic and handed out his business card. He said when the doctor threw the card away, Faizan went to police and filed a complaint that noted his name was the same as the prophet’s.

Pakistan’s minister for minority affairs has said the law is being examined to prevent widespread abuse.

Yeah, you wouldn’t want anyone to just arbitrarily use this law to jail people for absolutely no reason.

It would be funny if it wasn’t for the fact this is a country which has plenty of nuclear warheads to go around, and they get a huge itch every time someone starts drawing a cartoon of their “prophet”. The very fact they even contemplate executing a man for the offense of throwing out a business card with the name Muhammad on it goes to show just how reasonable people are when it comes to their indefensible beliefs. These are the same folks who want everyone else on earth to respect their beliefs. Respect is earned, not given away.

    Muhammed is one of the most common names for boys in Islamic countries, with their restriction on making images of the prophet I’ve always wondered how that works in a modern society. Mainly, how do people with the name Muhammed take photos of themselves?

    Now that Muhammed the business man is actively trying to destroy someone else’s life for throwing out his business card perhaps the accused could counter sue. After all Muhammed the business man is trying to equate the name on the business card with an affront to the prophet, in effect equating himself with the prophet. If throwing out a card with his name on it is such an affront, makes me wonder what he’d do if he found out nearly every prospective employer threw out his resume, then surely his drivers license photo and the house full of family photo albums with him in them would also be synonymous with an image of of the prophet in contradiction to Islamic law.

    Now perhaps the organizers of “Draw Muhammed Day” could take advantage of this. Perhaps this year a bunch of people named Muhammed could make YouTube videos saying something like, “Hi, my name is Muhammed and I don’t mind if you draw pictures of me.” Simple, respectful, but also pointing out how silly it is to complain about drawing, or making, images of Muhammed when a large percentage of Islamic parents name their boys Muhammed and are going to have their pictures taken, or papers with their names on them thrown out, all the time.
