Facebook founder is being investigated by Pakistani police for violating their country’s blasphemy laws, which carry the death penalty, in reaction to the Everybody Draw Muhammed group.
… a Pakistani High Court judge summoned the police after lawyer Muhammad Azhar Siddique filed an application for a First Information Report (FIR), claiming that the owners of Facebook had committed a heinous and serious crime under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code. In essence, an FIR launches a criminal investigation. But no charges have been filed.
“Heinous and serious crime”? Drawing a goddamned picture? Of a long dead person who absolutely nobody knows what the hell he even looked like? Or, do they mean heinous and serious as in poisoning girls’ schools, throwing acid in children’s faces? Honor killings? Punishing severely women who are raped? Morality police who flog women in the streets for showing a crack of ankle? Heinous and serious crime like that? Or, do they mean the laughable concept of blasphemy?
According to the paper, Section 295-C of the penal code reads: “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.”
But, but, he’s not a holy anything. He was a lunatic that heard voices, like all other religious lunatics, like the religious lunatics that are “investigating” the creator of Facebook for an imaginary “crime”. Why are persons outside of the islamic faith subject to islam’s inside rules? Islamists are pushing for the U.N. to adopt global blasphemy laws. Even Christians in the U.S. think their bullshit religion is above criticism.
