Right now, it looks impossible to separate religion from politics in Pakistan. Had Jinnah not died so early, we all could have seen an entirely different Pakistan than we see today. But then, 'Jo beet gayi, so baat gayi.'Will there be any takers in Pakistan for a ruling like in Bangladesh, the religion should not be allowed in national politics?
assalam alaikumI am becoming more and more anti Religious parties every day. IMO main reason for Pakistan is in a mess is because of the exploitation of Islam by the religious parties and their bigoted supporters. I can only repeat what Hafiz Shirazi said nearly 700 years ago about the bigotry of the Mullahs.
Sharaab haraam shumarand wa khoon hkalq halaal
Zihey tareeeqat wa millat zihaey shariat wa deen
Meaning that they forbid the drinking of wine but approve shedding of the blood of humanity. Praise to the religious path and nationhood, praise to the sharia and religion.
Despite GOP backtracking on amendment to the Blasphemy law, there was this strike! Why dont these bigots call for a shutter down against SUICIDE Bombings?
She is not free they are appealing the ruling. The law is flawed to begin with. Besides it being inhuman and backward. Setting those two things aside it is also making it so anyone with a grudge can bring up charges against people they have disputes with. Then when it actually goes to the legal system you have mobs formed with the support of the extremist local mullah to make sure the family and person even if found not guilty is murdered. The Taliban also do the same thing.The govt and that stupid taseer is to blame for all this mess calling names to the law and meeting asia and freeing her on his own bypassing the judicial system.

Ahan !Imams must go to government regulated schools before they can take their positions. Of course this is because every time one of those Zia types pops up in our politics we slap a ban on them.
There is no space for moral high ground in dealing with islamic fanatics if you are trying to avoid your nation state from catastrophic failure and collapse.Ahan !
so how does this policy of slapping a ban, or controlling the "free" will of Mullah via government schools differ from brain washing and force feeding ?
