Is Facebook Helping Pakistan Kill People for Blasphemy?
Almost fifty Islamic countries, can arrest you for blasphemy.
Pakistan can put you to death for committing blasphemy.
The Pakistani government is trying to keep tight control of the country, as more of its citizens are exposed to the internet. Recently, the country made a plea to both Facebook and the F.B.I., to help them find Pakistani citizens who had committed blasphemy.
The Pakistan Interior Minister claimed Facebook had agreed to send a team, to help them stop the horrible crime of insulting them. Pakistan made a demand that Facebook not only censor those speaking words they don’t like, but it give them the persons personal information.
A few weeks after these claims, Pakistan sentenced a man to death, over a Facebook post.
Facebook is helping Pakistan to enforce Sharia Laws, in two ways. First, by punishing anyone who offends them. Second, by not letting people hide their identities. They are trying to force us to speak as ourselves, even though there were over 1400 Islamic attacks last year. Even though Indonesia just sentenced a Christian to two years in prison, for reading a quote from the Quran. Even though Egypt arrested teenagers, for making fun of ISIS. Even though Jordan arrested Naheed Hatter, for sharing an insulting cartoon. Even though Saudi Arabia will execute you, for apostasy. For being an atheist. For being a witch.
Just in the past week, we have had our writers lose two profiles, and receive a month ban for hurting someones’ lil feelings.
Why is Facebook bowing down to Islamic censorship?
Why does Facebook respect the harsh Sharia Laws of Pakistan, but not the Free Speech rights of Americans?
30 day ban. Notice the word Muhammad isn’t even in there. What’s the insult? Lefties hate Hitler?
