Pakistan’s attorney general is investigating Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder, for his part in allowing the user-driven Draw Muhammad day. Of course, under Pakistan’s penal code, for facilitating a derogatory remark about Muhammad, Zuckerberg ain’t going to get poked with the soft pillow.
Last month, according to English-language Pakistani newspaper The News International, a Pakistani High Court judge summoned the police after lawyer Muhammad Azhar Siddique filed an application for a First Information Report (FIR), claiming that the owners of Facebook had committed a heinous and serious crime under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code. In essence, an FIR launches a criminal investigation. But no charges have been filed.
According to the paper, Section 295-C of the penal code reads: “Use of derogatory remark etc, in respect of the Holy Prophet, whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable for fine.”
So, peace be unto Muhammad. But not unto Mark Zuckerberg.
And I bet you thought this was going to be a rant about Facebook’s privacy concerns. No, no. There’s far bigger retardery afoot whenever you get Muslims that believe in the Hadith as canon and put them in positions to make batshit insane laws. Granted, after Pakistan blocked Facebook and Youtube over the ZOMG BLASPHEMY, Facebook had the Draw Muhammad Day pages removed. But they STILL want to kill Zuckerberg.
This is why you don’t want to be tried under Sharia Law. Congratulations to Pakistan’s government and legal system on planting a flag on your stake as biggest bunch of pitiful losers to ever run a country.
