For those unaware of the context, recent debate on the reformation on the Blasphemy law[in Pakistan] has triggered a spate of violence. With high profile targets like Governor Salmaan Taseer & Minority Minister Shahbaz Bhatti being the recent targets. Those who targeted them have justified it under the name of ‘blasphemy‘. Being a muslim, nothing hurts me more than cold-blooded murder being justified in the name of Islam.
I am a blasphemer
I am a blasphemer because my heart cries every time a human is slaughtered in the name of religion
I am in shambles whenever the ‘up holders’ of religion use it to justify murder.
I am a blasphemer because my tears do not recognize the difference between an Ahmedi, Shia, Wahabbi, Barelvi, Christian,Hindu, Muslim or an Atheist
It pains to witness the mosques being used as the barracks of demagogues instead of as a place to unite believers in remembrance and prayer.
