Ambassador Sherry Rahman to face blasphemy charges
“Those Muslims” who do not have faith in Allah and Muhammad (pbuh) resort to defending them, as if God and the Prophet needs their protection.

This creep, Muhammad Faheem Ahkter Gill has filed blasphemy charges against Sherry Rahman, before this gathers momentum, if enough people speak out, the ugly voices can be drowned.

Have you watched crowds? A bad guy starts bullying, if every one cowers, he will have the edge, on the other hand, if two or three guys speak up, the bullies flee.

What does it take to bring sanity to a situation? Enough people to speak up! It is that simple.
Both the evil and good things start with one individual, and if others join him or her, Qafila banta Jayega (people join the caravan) . Each one of us contributes to evil with our silence.

What can you do? Call in Pakistani Radio and TV Shows, condemn these in the news papers, that is if you want the change… the amount of time you gossip, can be spent on writing at the news papers in Pakistan.

Prophet is not going anywhere, neither Allah, we should have faith in them that no matter who and what any one curses, it should not affect us. We don’t own the Prophet, that is wrong to own him, he belongs to all of us not just Muslims. If we monopolize him, we are reducing him and Allah to Rabbul and Rahmatul Muslimeen.. Can we do that?

I urge every one to write, I hope some one can publish some good pieces in Pakistan News Papers, and I am sure they do, what is needed is for each one of you to write a single comment – No Blasphemy, the Prophet does not need these creeps to defend him…

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – A petition accusing Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States of committing blasphemy has been filed with the country’s Supreme Court.

Police were directed on Thursday to investigate allegations against Sherry Rehman, who has already faced death threats from militants after calling for reforms to the country’s anti-blasphemy law, according to court documents.

If the police find that there is enough evidence to support the allegations, the court will press charges against Rehman.

According to Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, anyone found to have uttered words derogatory to the Prophet Muhammad can be put to death.

And those who are accused are sometimes lynched by mobs even if they are found innocent by the courts.

The allegations against Rehman, which revolve around comments she made on Pakistani television in 2010, are being brought by Muhammad Faheem Ahkter Gill, a 31-year-old businessman who owns a marble business in the city of Multan.

Gill was watching the television interview with Rehman with two friends. He said he felt her comments were derogatory to the Prophet Muhammad and, being a Muslim, it was his responsibility to do something about it.

“I had been striving to get a blasphemy case registered against her since 2010, but in vain. Today the supreme court has ordered (the police) to register a case against her,” he said.

In November, a Pakistani Christian girl, Rimsha Masih, who was accused of burning pages of Muslim holy texts was cleared of blasphemy.

Rehman, a prominent member of the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), was appointed as Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States in November 2011.

Before being named envoy, she led the Pakistan Red Crescent Society and was a ranking member of the National Security Committee in the country’s Parliament.

She also the founding chairperson of the Jinnah Institute, a non-partisan public policy think tank “committed to the strengthening of democracy, governance and an independent national security project in Pakistan,” according to the website of Pakistan’s embassy in the United States.

Reuters contributed to this report.
