The Blasphemy Law: A Suggestion for the Government of Pakistan

10 years, 9 months ago

In the year 2000, General Pervez Musharraf, upon pressure from the Western countries tried to amend the method by which a case of blasphemy is registered against the alleged ones. However, the religious parties in Pakistan agitated very strongly, leading to the General to revert and postpone all his plans of making any amendments to the produce a case is registered.

 The Wahabi Groups abuse the Blasphemy Laws, and use them as an instrument to settle their personal vendetta. It is with utter dismay and regret that the then Pakistani Government became a party against His Holiness Gohar Shahi and the secret agencies incited some of the extremist clerics in Pakistan instigating many cases of blasphemy against His Holiness Gohar Shahi.

All the liberal vocals against the abuse of the Blasphemy Laws were quiet, and none stood up for the innocence of His Holiness Gohar Shahi. The Wahabi's sought to defile the Saintly personalities in the country, and a saintly person like Mohammad Yousuf of Lahore was labelled as a blasphemer to the Prophet Mohammad. He was shot dead while he was in the jail.

Currently there are at least 13 cases of blasphemy against Mohammad Younus AlGohar.

When the Governor of Punjab ‘Salman Taseer’ tried to help a Christian woman who has been instigated a false case of blasphemy, the extremists have killed him ruthlessly. Now, a majority of the Pakistani youth declare the killer to be their hero.

In Pakistan, if somebody quits Islam, the punishment is death. If somebody says something bad about the Prophet Mohammad, the punishment is death. What if a Muslim says bad things about other Prophets?

Advice Regarding the Blasphemy Law

According to Pakistan law, there is no punishment for those who blaspheme against other Prophets, whereas, according to the Qur’an, all the Prophets are same in the eyes of Allah.

If death was awarded to the blasphemers of Jesus too, no Muslim would ever instigate a false case against a Christian in Pakistan. Blasphemy against Prophet Mohammad must be the same for all Prophets, so that no Muslim lodges a blasphemy case against any Christian, and no Christian as such against a Muslim.

His Holiness Younus AlGohar suggests to the Government of Pakistan to legislate a law that punishes people who blaspheme against any Prophet of Allah; this is justice and this is what the Qur’an says.
