"A state can survive KUFR (infidelity), it cannot survive ZULM (oppression).
- Hazrat Ali - completely in line with the Qur'an.
The Qur’an relates history of many nations but we cannot find in the Book a single nation that suffered humiliation or annihilation for lack of worship or deficiency of rituals. Invariably, it has been violation of human rights.
Today, you raise voice against frank violation of human rights of minorities or Ahmadis in Pakistan, and there is a good chance that you will be cited for BLASPHEMY. Can the government intervene? Nay, such official will be killed by a Mullah the next day! Remember the enlightened Punjab governor Salman Taseer and his son, also the minorities federal minister Shahbaz Bhatti. (Kindly post the correct name if I made a mistake.)
