Pakistan will seek UN anti-blasphemy laws

The Prime Minister of Pakasatan, Raja Pervez Ashraf, has

…reiterated his demand from United Nations and other international organisations to come up with an effective legislation against all kinds of anti-Islam acts which harm the co-existence and harmony among the followers of different religions.

“We would go to the UN and OIC and get a law passed to stop anti-Islam activities, including blasphemy, for-ever,” he added. The prime minister said the Muslims have respect and reverence for all prophets and messengers of God and also other religions in the world. The Muslims expect that followers of other religions would reciprocate in the same way, he added. It was time to wage a diplomatic war with full sincerity and commitment until the international community is convinced to take concrete action including due legislation against all kinds of anti-Islam activities that provoke the sentiments of the Muslim world, Raja said.

First, I want to see an anti-science denialism law. Then, we can talk teapots.

    It seems to me the west has done nothing about Railway Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour’s offer of a reward for anyone (specifically including the Taliban) to kill the maker of the film.
    It would be wonderful if they were waiting till he traveled to a western country and then arrested and jailed him, which is what he deserves, but allowing extremists to get away with this kind of thing without any consequences just encourages more extremism in high places.
