Blasphemy Laws in Pakistan - what is wrong?

Another incident in uproar and then deep silence all around, horrific deaths continue to haunt Pakistan's hapless citizens. Problem with the country is not the religious zealot, it has always been the politicians and the corrupt bureaucrats . Pakistan's incumbent Prime Minister rose in politics only after he  used religion as the only criteria for his mass approval. A Kashmiri by cast, as Mr Nawaz Sharif claims, he has more often used the religious tools to settle personal scores. In his party's previous tenure in Lahore (His party, when ruling Punjab only serves Lahore and not the entire Punjab province) as the chief minister, when his party came in contention with the Governor Mr Salman Taseer, the foe was killed by his own security guard on charges of Blasphemy.

Mumtaz Qadri - the guard who killed Mr Taseer is living a lavish life in a jail in Punjab. Not only did he was not executed after the court order but the person while in jail also incited the jail staff and another person (a schizophrenic patient) was fired upon by a guard who later confessed that he was incited by Mumtaz Qadri. The government has refused to shift Qadri to some other jail and has also decided not to put him to solitary confinement.

Mumtaz Qadri is a strong disciple of Mr Tahir ul Qadri - a Canadian citizen who was financed and nurtured in his early days by MR Nawaz Sharif.

Even in the recent 2013 elections in Pakistan, Taliban had vehemently announced that   they would not allow anyone other than Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan to campaign for elections. Rallies of secular parties not using religion as their agenda were targeted by Taliban.

So how can you expect the government to punish who are charged with taking law into their hands?

 
Worst still, the West has always supported dictators to achieve their own agenda. These dictators also financed Religious groups to blackmail US and the UK with a purpose to draw more dollars from the West and get their regimes legitimized.
 
 
 
 
Only if the West can ask mr Nawaz Sharif to shift Mr Mumtaz Qadri to any jail outside Punjab? Or place him in solitary confinement will be the first step to save the future of minorities.

India's irresponsible Nuclear act



India's uranium enrichment facility as it looked in 2011




And this is the image in April 2013

 
India is yet to sign NPT and her secret development of nukes is not only creating risks of Nuke's race in the region yet turning a blind eye by international community may also encourage Iran to set out for a similar kind of adventure.
