Life Under “Moderate” Islam

It’s the religion of peace, didn’t you know?

CHRISTIAN SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON FOR BLASPHEMING ISLAM

A court in Faisalabad, Pakistan, sentenced to life imprisonment Imran Masih, a young Christian, for having insulted and desecrated the Koran, according to the Minorities Concern newsletter.

On July 1, 2009 Masih, a shopkeeper by profession, was brutally tortured by a group of Muslims, then arrested by police on charges – allegedly fabricated- that he had burned pages of the Koran.

On January 11, 2010 the judge sentenced him to prison for life, which he will serve in the federal prison in Faisalabad where he is currently confined.

The court also imposed an additional penalty of 10 years’ imprisonment and payment of 100 thousand rupees (just over 800 euros), under provisions of the law prohibiting blasphemy against Islam.

Peter Jacob, executive secretary of the National Commission on Justice and Peace, sponsored by the Catholic Church, while not openly criticizing the ruling, speaks of “not a good verdict ” and “lack of freedom” of the judiciary.

The rest, here. Pakistan is a “moderate” Islamic country.  They’re technically our allies.  Now try to imagine the abject MISERY it must be living as a dhimmi in countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran.
