Why Pakistanis Won't Speak Out Against Blasphemy Law

The arrest of 11-year-or-so-old Christian girl, Rimsha Masih, in Pakistan in connection with the blasphemy charges has shocked the world but not Pakistan and majority Pakistanis. But it's not easy for them to speak out in Pakistan. If they do so it clearly means they are looking for trouble, not less than a death threat.

Another Sad Anniversary of Islamic Extremism

Salman Taseer was assassinated by a member of his own elite guard for defending a Christian woman for allegedly disrespecting the prophet of Islam. The blasphemy law in Pakistan must be repealed without further delay. The state must not police the religious beliefs of its citizens.
