PAKISTANI Minorities' Irreducible Minimum: REPEAL THE BLASPHEMY LAW

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 He demanded that the law be repealed.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.
