Salaams to all my Brothers and Sisters,
WHY does Pakistan have anti-blasphemy laws? There is zero evidence that these laws existed during the time of the Exalted Messenger. Does God need to be protected from human insults??! Everyone knows that these laws are used as a weapon during feuds or against religious minorities. Look at the article below--the prosecution was passing out sweets after somebody received a death sentence! This is just deranged.
Consider the condition of MANY countries in the late 1940s: China was in abject poverty. South Korea had just endured 35 years of a brutal Japanese occupation and had yet to endure a civil war in the early 1950s. Most southeast Asian countries were in bad shape after WWII. Now compare the present state of these countries to Pakistan today. If Pakistan doesn't make progress, it won't be the fault of India, U.S., Israel, etc. It will be the deeply entrenched backward thinking of too many people and the cowardice of the government to put a stop to such nonsense. It's no wonder the Muslims countries are generally lagging behind --too many are either kleptocracies, mullahcracies, or dictatorships. It's like they never heard of the Qur'an!
