Islam is a religion of peace, prosperity and peace. No Muslim hurts Muslim and Non-muslim but internationalism terrorism as politics raised corruption, violence, lawlessness, poverty, injustice and deteriorating law and order situation. International Community should step up against violation of human rights, respect and honour each and every community regarding blasphemy laws, poverty, injustice, lawlessness, illiteracy and complex politics which is main problem lack of leadership lead nation as whole according to constitution and laws for Muslims and Non-muslims.
International Community is responsible for terrorism in the name of religions, sects, race, tribe and cast. The Great Britain set us free then we chained by America and allies so gifted complex cultural, regional and deviated systems which are impossible to be changed many lost lives many lost minds in the race of darkness, wealth.
this is just a preview: when majority of non Muslim west will decide by citing these images .
majority can do whatever they want to do with minority. this justified drone attacks Justice when accused. i saw my house burning by nukes of their brothers. and how shall I say when accused by majority, a criminal. this is a dangerous game. for us its fine for a moment. Allah knows the future.Recommend
My dear friend,
I dont understand that you are blaming to the International community. You have to see how terrorsit and exremist are stong in Pakistan. The problem was just accured due the false balsphemy on christian in Badami Bagh.
It all started when local barber guy accuses of blasphemy, Christian fellow, he was arrested and still unclear about the accusation, meanwhile Wada mujahideen e Islam, mob burnt over 100 houses.
you are hiding the real situation that what happend on Badami Bagh with Christian house. But you are balming to the international community. I think yu have to educate yurself and write the actual facts what going in Paksitan.

As the saying goes “he devil made me do it”
Pathetic, violent, evil crybabies.
Do you admire people who burn down other people’s homes because their feelngs were hurt?
If so, are you above the ago of 5?
it’s really pathetic
Islam is a religion of peace and prosperity in book but in practice it not anymore. Muslims should look into their on skins before blaming the international Community for their own barbaric acts against their own Muslim fellows and non Muslims alike. They are committing crime against humanity which no religion or law allows. Pakistan Law (295C) against blasphemy itself is the culprit not the rest of the world.
what a despicable act. Time for Pakistanis to realise that most of the problems Pakistan as a nation is facing, are self made. But sadly Pakistanis don’t seem to be able to realise that, and keep on blaming others.
It was America, NO it was India, no it was the jews. Yeah the jews, lets blame everything on the jews, right?
If this is the reaction of a mob to supposed “blasphemy”, it’s all the more evidence that anti-blasphemy laws should be forbidden worldwide.
If there is no right to “blaspheme”, then there are no rights at all.
Mob behaviour is barbaric. It has nothing to do with the religion. It is the frustrtation and minorities are the easy targets in societies like us. However I am still anxiouos to know the reaction of our clergy. If they remain quite on this, they have no reasons to demand tolerance from the world.
But even then my dear Randy, THERE SHOULD BE NO RIGHT TO BLASPHEME in any society.
shame on me, shame on my religious leaders, shame on my political leaders, shame on the society. lets assume a situation where a small muslim settlement in india or europe or even burma is attacked by a non muslim mobs and is looted and destroyed. I can bet our religio political leadership and social media would have been full of protests by devoted muslims.
And to think that OIC wants to introduce anti-blasphemy laws worldwide!
It is all about certainty of the unknowable. Man’s laws can be obeyed or broken. God’s laws can’t.
God doesn’t need your help for punishment. Whatever happens with God’s creations seems to be
all right.Obey man’s laws and work for justice and fairness amongst mankind.God’s Will will be done without you, so grow up, please.Recommend
Will someone talk about repealing this man-made law?
Apparently, according to newspapers, the alleged blasphemy was committed during a drunken discussion between a Muslim and a Christian. Was the Muslim man punished for drinking, because last I checked that was forbidden! Is there no justice. Why do we even have a constitution, a judiciary or a police force? Disuse has led to atrophy. Do the people, who so gleefully burn down all shreds of humanity stop to think that they will be the ones persecuted tomorrow by an equally frenzied mob over a word, a belief, a family name. Please stop the madness.
