A court in Pakistan has sentenced a Muslim prayer leader and his son to life in jail for blasphemy.Round up those Muslim prayer leaders for insulting Islam!
The pair were found guilty in Punjab province of tearing down a poster of a gathering to mark the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad. They deny blasphemy.
The sentence was handed down by an anti-terrorism court in the city of Dera Ghazi Khan in eastern Punjab province on Tuesday.Yessir, where there's tearing there's terrorism.
The complainant, Khan, alleged that the pair had ripped down and trampled a poster of a gathering to mark the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad. It had been posted on a pillar outside the grocery shop.Other stories, should you care to look them up, mention religious verses appearing on the poster, which makes it immune to any and all depredations the hand of man can offer, I guess. Clever folks should, about now, be painting everything they think is worth preserving with the requisite verses.
