Everything, including religion, is about opinions. Opinions should be vented, listened to, argued out, distilled, then accepted or rejected. Opinions should never be, and can never be oppressed. They have to be defeated in logical, rational argument. It is the only way any idea or philosophy can win.
If the idea isn't defeated intellectually then it will always resurface.
Muslims unfortunately have not learned this simple lesson.
And then some person who is not atheist gets to know about this dirty group and uses law of the land to take action against it. Why are you whining?
Noor muqaddam slaughter at the hands of liberal atheist Zahir Jafar is also not a matter of life or death for the state. Zahir Jafer can be released tomorrow and Pakistan Would Continue to survive. However it is responsibility of the state to punish Zahir Jafer. Same is the case with this issue
The sad contradiction is that the Muslims who are right thinking and understand the true spirit and purpose of Islam are the ones that are considered to be atheist, heretic or kaffir.Forgotten*, deliberately. Those 1400 years ago, and for more than a thousand years after, used to invite open, public debate. Who, btw, also did not have blasphemy laws.
Today's Muslman, especially the one residing within Pakistan, is just compensating for his own insecurities, lack of understanding of the religion, and absence of belief. Otherwise, he has no problem committing every other conceivable crime against God and his religion 5 times every day.

To question any extreme or regressive interpretation of Islam today is to invite accusation of blasphemy or worse.
Bhai days of Bulleh shah RA are no more- habibis wonThe people you are arguing with can't see the wood because of the trees and they've thrown the baby out with the bathwater.
You are banging your head against a brick wall and you're flogging a dead horse.
Bulley Shah RA, says the following about the bits I have boldened:
Gal samajh laiye te raula ki
Ay Ram Rahim Tey Moula ki.
If the message of tolerance, forgiveness, love and inclusion brought to us by the revered Saints and Sufis of Islam have been forgotten and are being ignored then no one is going to listen to the likes of you, or me for that matter.
Now to keep peace in society, we NEED blasphemy laws (of course death sentence is BS) even though this is probably anti-Islam in nature but from statecraft/secular perspective this is needed

The 'law of the land' is unjust and needs to be changed. A pretty straight forward concept. Analogous to why you "whine" against the quota system and the 18th amendment every chance you get.
Red herring, and a very unintelligent one at that.
Another self goal by inbred republic of mullahistan. At this point India and others don't even need to do anything to harm Pakistan's image.
