Pakistani Businessman Accused of Blasphemy for Refusing to Join Protest against Muhammad Film

Whenever we raise concerns about "radical" Muslims (i.e. Muslims who believe in following Muhammad's violent teachings), a host of reporters and politicians immediately remind us of all the "moderate" Muslims (i.e. Muslims who follow Muhammad's command to pray, but not his command to violently subjugate non-Muslims). Since there are so many "moderate" Muslims in the world, we shouldn't be at all concerned about the "radical" Muslims.

But once again, reality shows us the problem with this reasoning. When a "moderate" Muslims says, "Hey, maybe we shouldn't be throwing such a massive tantrum over a boring little film that no one would be watching if we weren't drawing attention to it," his "radical" counterparts cry, "Kill the blasphemer!"

Police, of course, can't defend the "blasphemer," because then they'll be labeled "blasphemers" as well. So they're forced to obey the violent mob.

And that's why we can't ignore Muhammad's teachings. Violent mobs often find a way to get their way. Just ask the Obama Administration, the United Nations, or the media.

FoxNews--Pakistani officials say they have opened an investigation into a businessman who has been accused of blasphemy after refusing to join protests over an anti-Islam video and allegedly trying to convince others also not to take part.

Police officer Munir Abbasi says that hundreds of protesters in the city of Hyderabad who rallied against the film that mocks the Prophet Muhammad demanded businessman Haji Nasrullah Khan shut his shops in solidarity.

When Khan refused, one of his tenants said his decision supported the film.

City police chief Fareed Jan said Wednesday the protesters claim Khan insulted the Prophet.

Jan said there's no evidence to suggest this happened and said police were pressured by the mob to open the case.

Blasphemy is punishable by life in prison or death in Pakistan. (Source)

I know there is at least one hadith and maybe a Qu'ranic verse that supports this type of coercion.

Since when is telling the truth about the holy prophet of islam blasphemy? Only this shows that telling the actual facts about the life of the messenger of Allah is more deadly then kicking Allah in the bud! It is often said that islam is not a religion, but a sect round the personal glorification of Mohammed. And again this is showing it perfectly!

Reading my daily Jihad Today (Al Jazeera) they had this nice little quote from the Muslims celebrating in Pakistan.

""Our policemen are not any better than the Americans because they are trying to stop us. They are in the same league as them, they are heretics like them," said student Jawad Ahmed.

"They should allow us to demolish the American embassy because they have blasphemed against our holy Prophet. The police are also becoming an accomplice of blasphemers."
