The repeal of Blasphemy Law or its amendment has become the Pakistani Minorities’ irreducible minimum. Pakistan owes it to its founding principle i.e. no permanent majority will dominate a permanent minority on sheer numbers alone to repeal this draconian, anti-Jinnah, un-Pakistani, anti-democratic, unIslamic and inhuman law.
NA echoes with call for amending blasphemy law
ISLAMABAD: At least two members from the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) and one from the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on Friday called for amendments to the blasphemy law to minimise chances of its misuse.
On a point of order, Jamshaid Dasti of the PPP condemned the Gojra tragedy, and said there was a need to revisit the blasphemy law.
Akram Masih Gill, a minority member from the PML-Q, said the blasphemy law was being used to victimise minorities, especially the Christians. He demanded that the law be repealed. Nosheen Saeed, another PML-Q member, said that law should be amended.
