Why on earth while vets sleep homeless in the UK are we sending foreign aid to a country where Islamist mobs riot if Christians are not massacred?
Protesters have taken to the streets in Pakistan after a woman who WRONGLY spent eight years on death row simply for being a Christian, for not following Sharia law, was acquitted. Bibi, 53, was accused of insulting Islam in a row which erupted after neighbours objected to her drinking water from their glass because she was not Muslim.
The country’s top court ordered Asia Bibi should be released after the evidence against her was deemed insufficient. Note, she was not released because it was wrong to show such religious discrimination towards her. It was that they lacked evidence she had breached Sharia law.
The mother-of four, who had been living on death row since 2010 – eight years – was finally free, except she lives in a land lacking liberty!
In response to the acquittal verdict, supporters of Islamist political party Tehreek-e-Labaik (TLP) condemned the ruling and blocked roads in major cities, pelting police with stones in the eastern city of Lahore. In the southern city of Karachi leaders of the party told supporters to keep starting fires when police put the blazes out.
Following the verdict street protests and blockades of major roads spread, paralysing parts of Islamabad, Lahore and other cities.
Asia Bibi was put on death row to be executed for being Christian. England has a Christian cross as the national flag; its patron saint is St George; the Union Jack has three crosses.
Why on earth are we funding Islamofascist regimes like Pakistan who torture Christians? Just because to those who don’t read or study world events, and look at everything through the pages of the Guardian, Islamists are cuddly teddy bears who need a free handout due to the ills of Empire? Japan became a successful world power after World War 2. Pakistan hardly has an angelic history – what of the horrors of Islamist slavery and Islamist empire?
One of the TLP’s top leaders called for the death of the judges involved in making the decision to overturn Ms Bibi’s conviction.
“They all three deserve to be killed. Either their security should kill them, their driver kill them, or their cook kill them,” TLP co-founder Muhammad Afzal Qadri told a protest in Lahore.
“Whoever, who has got any access to them, kill them before the evening.”
More than 1,000 Islamists blocked a key road linking the capital, Islamabad with the garrison city of Rawalpindi on Thursday, demanding Bibi be publicly hanged.
In recent years, two politicians who sought to help Bibi were assassinated.
Enough of the feeling sorry. Pakistan does not respect human rights, so it should get no aid whatsoever, but face sanctions, and be kicked out of the Commonwealth immediately.
