Pakistan sentences man to death for blasphemy

The bravery of religion is yet again on display, this time in Pakistan where a man has been sentence to death for supposedly insulting the prophet Mohammed. There's a familiar pattern that arises in these parts: the predominately Muslim population has a few altercations with other religious groups that are Christian, and suddenly the lone person is accused of blasphemy and is usually beaten, followed by the ...

Pakistan is fucked up

Imagine your loved one gets gunned down for trying to reform a law that makes the lives of people visibly worse, and the murderer is showered with rose petals and celebrated for his actions? Well, for that to happen, you'd have to be in Pakistan, and the law you would have to try and reform would be the blasphemy kind. Salman Taseer, the governor of Punjab, was attempting to reform the laws in an effort to ...

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 ...

More sectarian violence in Pakistan

Imagine a philosophy that regards human life as worthless and cheap, where adherents are told to kill others who do not share their beliefs, and where huge segments of the population are kept ignorant and subservient. Well, you don't need to use your imagination; this type of philosophy already exists, and it has a colorful name: Islam. Pakistan was the scene of more violence today as a market in Peshawar w ...

They also are beginning to see that educating women is important. All of this sounds pretty encouraging, right? Ok, now that we've covered th ...

Pakistan getting crazier every day

It isn't good news that a nation with nuclear capabilities is slowly becoming a fundamentalist theocracy. Here is a disturbing article in the Guardian about how the growing intolerance of Muslims in Pakistan is having deadly consequences. A few weeks ago, I reported on a group of Christians who were attacked for allegedly defacing the Koran. Their homes were set on fire with them still inside, killing 9 in ...

Christians burned alive in Pakistan

A small Christian village was attacked by thousands of angry Muslims in Pakistan, and among the dead was a 7 year old child. Local religious leaders enticed their young Muslim followers to murder after it was reported that an important Christian leader had defiled the Koran.

Taliban kidnapping boys in Pakistan to recruit suicide bombers

How long does it take to brainwash a human being into becoming a suicide bomber? About a month, apparently. If you want to know how messed up the Taliban is, you need to head over to the Independent and learn more about how they kidnap young boys at gunpoint and indoctrinate the shit out of them in their training camps. The boys are taught your predictable "Pakistan is a tool of Western Oppression", and sho ...

Forced conversion fears in Pakistan

A recent article on BBCNEWS reports a tiny Christian minority in Pakistan is facing dire threats to convert to Islam or face annihilation. The group has asked the government to provide protection, though it feels not enough is being done to keep them safe. I just feel the need to ask: just what exactly is the point of converting these people? Evidently you cannot force someone to believe what you do, partic ...
