Mardan university student accused of blasphemy beaten to death on campus

  • This time it is Mishal Khan A journalism student was shot dead and by a large vigilante mob comprising fellow students at the Abdul Wali Khan University (AWKU) in Pakistan’s Mardan town, tomorrow it could be a student of Karachi University, then Punjab University and then maybe a student from one of the students in Balochistan.

 

  • No leader of Pakistan has ever cared to ask our Pakistani youths abroad, “why have you left Pakistan?”. Almost every famous personalities in Pakistan (Imran Khan, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Nawaz Sharif, Pervez Musharraf, etc) know the reason behind our youths wanting to leave the country. The young generation are willing to give any amount of money to an agent of their choice and prays to God….basically anything to get a visa.

 

  • As published by Sheharyar Ali of The Express Tribune in 2016, Ammad Zafar of Karachi University public administration department has said that around 48.7% of youths in Karachi are wanting to leave the country. Mishal Khan’s story is not just murder but it represents the negativity in Pakistan which has became part of our culture. The name Pakistan literally means “The Land of the Pure” which has become a joke now. Anyone educated is told to be witin the red circle…if anyone tries to step out of it, they are threatened to be killed. Take Malala Yousufzai for example. Nobody has the right to live if they question the law or speaks out for others. The simplest way to silence a person is by death.

Sindh Assembly adopts bill against forced religious conversions

The Sindh Assembly on Thursday adopted a bill against forceful religious conversions.

The bill recommends a five year punishment for perpetrators, whereas facilitators of forceful religious conversions will be handed a three year sentence.

The Sindh Criminal Law (Protection of Minorities) Bill, 2015, was proposed by the PML-F's Nand Kumar Goklani.

Under the newly passed bill, forcibly converting a minor is also a punishable offence.

Adults will be given 21 days to consider their decision to convert.

The South Asia Partnership-Pakistan (SAP-PK) released a report in collaboration with the Aurat Foundation in July 2015 stating that at least 1,000 girls are forcibly converted to Islam in Pakistan every year.

The report defined a forced conversion as when a person or persons use any sort of pressure, force, duress or threat, whether physical, emotional or psychological, to make another person adopt another religion.

Goklani, speaking to Dawn.com, said the bill was first introduced in the assembly in Dec 2015. "I asked the assembly to take it up today or I would protest," he said.

"There is a need for this bill because forced conversions happen here," he said.
