God is taking a country down – Pakistan!
Salmaan Taseer, governor of the Punjab province of Pakistan was shot dead by one of his guards Mumtaz Qadri. Reason? Mr Taseer was a moderate Muslim and he was a vocal opponent of a blasphemy law under which people (often minority) disrespecting the-one-who-can-not-be-named-drawn-pictured-caricatured-AND-disrespected were sentenced to death.
The killer Mumtaz Qadri is actually heralded as a national hero! In Twitterspace he is referred to as “Ghazi” – a brave warrior! Sure showering bullets on an unarmed man whom you are supposed to guard is a stupendous act of valour and bravery! Somebody creates a Facebook “fan” page for him and 2000 people like him and praise him before the page is removed. He is showered with roses by lawyers – yes lawyers – when he is presented in the court! National hero. Yeah that’s right!!!
People educated enough to be users of Facebook and Twitter and be lawyers are actually supporting a religious fanatic. That’s a dangerous sign for a society!
In the name of God, the most hateful, the most wasteful and the stupidest fantasy of Humans!
