TOLERANCE IN PAKISTAN

By David Vance On March 2nd, 2011 at 9:26 am

I note that the sole Christian Minister in the Pakistan government was brutally murdered last night.

Pakistani Minorities Minister Shahbaz Bhatti has died after gunmen opened fire on his car in the capital Islamabad, hospital officials say. He was travelling to work through a residential district when his vehicle was sprayed with bullets, police said. Mr Bhatti, the cabinet’s only Christian minister, had received death threats for urging reform to blasphemy laws.

Those would be the “blasphemy” laws carry a death sentence for anyone who criticises Islam. Nice. Please note that the British government has decided to INCREASE the aid it gives to Pakistan. I think that is pretty disgraceful. Pakistan is a major problem but at the heart of all of its problems is the intolerance of those Islamic who murder those who protest about strident pro-Islamic blasphemy laws.
