The notorious blasphemy law and the religious minorities in Pakistan

Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury

When the Supreme Court of Pakistan acquitted Asia Bibi from the death penalty, leaders and members of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) took to the streets calling for protests across the country. A TLP patron, Pir Abdul Qadri called for the killing of the Supreme Court judges who had ruled on the case of Asia Bibi. Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan rebuked the protestors for exploiting religious sentiments for political gain, and promised that the country would protect the lives of people at all costs. However, the next day, the government announced that it was in talks with the religious groups who protested the court verdict, and Asia Bibi was put on the exit control list, barring her from leaving Pakistan. Imran Khan went further and released all the arrested protestors of TLP and apologized.

Egypt: Human rights group accuses Qatar and Turkey of funding Muslim Brotherhood


A human rights group in Egypt issued a report “stating that the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group is behind establishing 13 armed movements that carried out terrorist attacks in Egypt between 2013 and 2019.”

The report “of the Forum for Development and Human Rights Dialogue, openly accused Qatar and Turkey of funding the Muslim Brotherhood group designated by the Egyptian state as terrorist.”

Tariq Ramadan on rape charges: “Yes I made a mistake…It was a political set up….to neutralize the Muslims”

Ever the victim, no matter what. Tariq Ramadan has been accused by several women now of violent rapes. He acknowledges some nebulous wrongdoing here, but then claims that it was all an attempt to discredit him, and thereby to “neutralize the Muslims.” It’s the same old victimhood paranoia we see from Islamic supremacists whenever they’re accused of any wrongdoing at all.

The terrorist who murdered two innocent people before being shot dead by police while wearing a fake suicide vest had already been jailed for plotting terror attacks.

Usman Khan, 28, was one of nine fundamentalists who schemed to target sites including the Houses of Parliament, the London Stock Exchange and the US embassy.


He was recorded saying that the only possible outcomes for him were martyrdom, prison or victory.

The terrorists were also recorded discussing leaving bombs in pubs and clubs in and around Stoke-on-Trent, where Khan lived at the time.

He was named by police as the suspect who was shot dead following yesterday's deadly attack, and searches of his Staffordshire home are being carried out.

A man and a woman died, while three others - a man and two women - were injured in the attack.

It has since emerged that Khan, who was born and raised in the UK, and eight others were jailed for a variety of terror offences in February 2012 - and he was freed in December last year.

Khan was given an indeterminate sentence for "public protection" - meaning he could remain in jail beyond the end of his eight year sentence.

 Sri Lanka expels 200 Islamic clerics after Easter attacks

Sri Lanka expels 200 Islamic clerics after Easter attacks

Sri Lanka's home affairs minister said some 200 clerics were expelled from the island amid a security crackdown in the aftermath of the Easter Sunday attacks.

Sri Lanka has expelled over 600 foreign nationals, including around 200 Islamic clerics, since the Easter suicide bombings blamed on a local jihadi group, a minister told AFP on Sunday.

Home Affairs Minister Vajira Abeywardena said the clerics had entered the country legally, but amid a security crackdown after the attacks, were found to have overstayed their visas.  Fines were imposed and they were expelled from the island as a result, the minister said.

هنصلى حتى وسط الرماد

"أسقف و أقباط مطاى يزيلون أثار الحريق بخيمة الصلاة ويصلون الجمعة العظيمة وسط الرماد ..

لم يمنعهم حريق خيمة الصلاة بالكامل من الصلاة بعد رفع الادلة الجنائية وفى وقت قصير تم ازالة اثار الحريق حوالى 1000 كرسى ومحتويات الهيكل ووضع كراسى وبدء صلاة الجمعة العظيمة رغم الرماد ورائحة الحريق تفوح فى كل مكان وحرارة الشمس الحارقة ولكن بخور الصلاة ارتفعت فى كل مكان يقف امامهم الاسقف والكهنة والشمامسة وخلفهم الشعب يصلون ذكرى صلب المسيح .....

Sri Lanka authorities warned of Easter church bombings weeks before Sunday's massacre, officials say

After a day of deadly Easter Sunday attacks, counterterrorism expert Bobby Chacon says the massacre shows the radical ideology is spreading.

Weeks before coordinated bombings ripped through churches and luxury hotels -- killing nearly 300 people on Easter Sunday -- authorities in Sri Lanka received warnings a domestic radical Muslim group would attack the nation on the Christian holy day.

Despite multiple warnings from international intelligence agencies, however, Sri Lanka’s security officials reportedly failed to heed the alerts and apparently took no action to protect against a potential attack. Authorities were first alerted to the threat April 4.

Egyptian Christians Left With Nowhere To Pray But The Street

March 1, 20197:16 AM ET


On a recent visit to Egypt, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo toured a towering new cathedral. He praised the authoritarian government of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi for supporting Egypt's Christian minority. But that is not the whole story in this majority Muslim nation. In some parts of Egypt, the government will not grant permits for churches. And tens of thousands of worshippers are left to pray in the street. NPR's Jane Arraf reports.

UNIDENTIFIED GROUP #1: (Foreign language spoken).

JANE ARRAF, BYLINE: It's Sunday morning, and the Mar Gerges church in the town of Tayeba is almost full. It's a Coptic Orthodox service - three hours long. Children dart in and out. There are stained glass windows casting rainbow-colored light on the worshippers. Men are on one side, the women on the other. Most of the men wear galabayas - the long robes of the countryside. Their hands, raised in prayer, are weathered from working in the fields. A lot of the families in the battered, wooden pews have come from surrounding towns and villages, where their churches are closed.
