Just awful that in this supposedly more enlightened times some religous extremeists can`t have some humility and compassion for a girl who clearly is too disabled to know what she was doing. She could get the death penelty in Pakistan for tearing out some pages of the Koran in 24 hours. Please sign the petition I despair of some peoples ignorence sometimes this makes me so angry!

Makes you despair for humanity. it's one thing for cave men to wallow in their own pathetic view of the world but leave others out of it.

She won't get executed but any kind of a prison term would be a travesty. Whatever happens the religious knobs on the street will target her if she gets out.

I think she won't be executed but she can't win whatever happens. Doesn't say much for Pakistans standing in the world as a free modern civilised democracy. 😒

That's a bit hard to do, when Islamic militants come in from your Western borders, the government is notoriously corrupt, and elements in your military and government has sympathies with the Islamic militants to the extent that it used to train them. It would be ridiculous for them to claim that.

EDIT: My apologies, I first I read Pakistanis not Pakistans. The ' would have helped.

Turns out the local mullah stitched the girl up because he doesn't like Christians. Also according to the article politicians have been assassinated for speaking out against the blasphemy law so it's unlikely to get changed anytime soon.

The hysterical reaction to any suggestion of it is simply unbelievable. But I doubt that entire community have a chance of getting back to their homes because in that atmosphere reason doesn't have a hope in hell.

The good thing is the cops have dragged this fool in - shows that while some religious nuts may hold sway in the streets the law is attempting to do the right thing for now. I wonder if he will get the death penalty for tearing out pages from the Koran though

According to Islamic law anyone who is mentally impaired, cannot be held responsible for their actions. This case should have been thrown out pronto - whether the girl did it or not. This fucking so called Mullah has caused more harm than good, and it shows Islam in a very bad light too. Fact is these so called religious scholars know nothing about Islamic law, and have no real respect for theirselves, their communities or their faith, or else they'd never go round trying to stitch up a mentally impaired girl for something she did not do. It makes me fucking mad.

If they follow that part of Islamic Law that is (I don't know how Pakistan implements it or how they interpret it), they might have their own interpretation. I honestly don't know how a case like this would end here, Pakistan is such a conflicted mess it could result with either the mullah being punished, nothing happening or the girl actually facing a very harsh sentence like death.

Actually no one has ever been executed due to this law - it seems the authorities come down on the side of sense, but Islamic parties resist any changing of the law. The average overly-religious fuckhead on the street is liable to attack the concerned individual or their families though.

In part this seems to be because the 'law' is lucky to get to the alleged culprit first - if this girl hadn't been in custody she would have been murdered. Is there any doubt on that?

I think the fact the local Christian community upped sticks and done one after her arrest says it all really, even after the arrest of the Mullah.

Common sense prevailed but it is an absolute disgrace that she was framned for that.

Nah! Just joking, son! Can't have too many Muslims as far as I'm concerned. I love everything about Islamic culture. Such an enlightened and peace loving culture.

There are too many first cousins being married in Bradford resulting in too many children being born with disabilities but the health professionals have been reluctant to speak out about it because of "Islamophobia" claims and pressure from their leaders.

I'm not even sure how it is relevant to this thread. At least the other ones were topical. Somehow. In their own special way.

It does seem to be a bit clutching at straws in an attempt to tenuously link to his agenda when in reality it has no connection to Bradford or the lack of evidence he has regarding his claims. I must admit I do await his response with how he has access to information which he himself has stated is not in the public domain.

According to the Bradford Community mental health profile Bradford is in fact pretty much average for England overall. I have found a Daily Mail article concerning it regarding Steve Jones but that in itself states no higher level of inbreeding than the Royal Family and that it is a potential future problem not one at this time. It also claims that Northern Ireland has a high level of Inbreeding

Whom has been found not guilty and the one who framed her has been charged.

Also why do you only make comments on threads which relate to Muslims or Pakistanis? Considering this is a film forum website I have not seen you make one comment regarding a film.

Yes, it is still irrelevant to the entire point WHICH DEALT WITH BLASPHEMY LAWS. IN PAKISTAN. It's so tenuous it borders in idiotic bigotry. NOT THE MENTAL CONDITION OF THE PAKISTANI NATION.
