Mother of two “insulted Muhammad” by asking what Muhammad had done for women
“Some of the women workers had reportedly been pressuring Bibi to renounce her Christian faith and accept Islam. During one discussion, Bibi responded by speaking of how Jesus had died on the cross for the sins of humanity and asking the Muslim women what Muhammad had done for them.”
Asia Bibi, 37 years old, is sentenced to be executed under the Pakistan Penal Code. The law imposes life in prison for defiling the Qur’an and death for insulting the person who Muslims say is their prophet, Muhammad.
There are only about 2.8 million Christians left in Pakistan. As with all countries where Muslims are in the majority, other religions are slowly but surely stamped out through a combination of the imposition of Islamic law, lack of human rights protection by government and Muslim violence.
According to what I’ve read, that is the way it is everywhere there is a Muslim majority.
If any of our readers are aware of a Muslim majority country where people of other religions are not persecuted, I’m all ears. What do our Muslim readers think about this death sentence? Should people have freedom of speech to criticize Islam or the Muslim prophet called Muhammed?
