Another Pakistani Sentenced to Death for Blasphemy

Another horror story from Pakistan.  It's hard to make sense from the article, but it illustrates just how different Islamic law is enforced to how Western law is enforced.  In essence, Islamic courts are nothing more than what is known in the West as a kangaroo court. 

Remember folks, this is what is waiting for us if we allow Sharia to have any more influence than it already does in Western courts.  So if you don't mind being brought before such a travesty of justice, keep your collective head in the sand and pretty soon you'll have your wish of being a dhimmi.  Or maybe dead, or forced to embrace Islam, or be driven from your home.

An additional district and sessions judge sentenced a man to death on Monday for scrawling “blasphemous remarks” on walls in the Islampura area.

The judge also imposed a fine on convict Zulfiqar Ali.

Around 11 prosecution witnesses, including the former superintendent police of Islampura, Pervez Qandhari, recorded their statements before the court.

According to the FIR registered by complainant Syed Najmul Hasan under section 295-C against Ali, he was arrested in 2008 after being caught red-handed.

When the court asked Ali why people had registered a case against him, he responded in the court that he did not know. The judge again asked whether any scuffle had occurred between him and the witnesses. To that Ali replied: ‘No’.

The judge doubted the mental stability of the convict and so he, under Article 84 of the Qanon-e-Shahadat Ordinance, asked the convict his name, father’s name, date of birth and educational qualification.

After Ali answered all the questions correctly, the court decided to proceed with the case.

According to witnesses, the convict was caught red-handed by resident of Islmapura, he apologised and handed them a written statement admitting that he had been committing the crime for the last 15 days.

On the other hand, the counsel for the accused contended that his client was implicated in a forged case and Ali had nothing to do with this case.
