Pakistan sentences man to death for sharing “blasphemous” content about Islam on Facebook

Summary: 

“Raza was arrested last year for allegedly posting derogatory content about Sunni Muslim religious leaders and the wives of the Prophet Mohammed on Facebook.”

Shi’ites don’t believe that the first three caliphs, Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman, were legitimate, and regards Muhammad’s wife Aisha negatively because of her lifelong opposition to Ali, Muhammad’s son-in-law and the revered figure of Shi’ite Islam. Shi’a believe that Ali was the rightful successor of Muhammad. Aisha hated him for telling Muhammad to relax and that he could always get another wife when she was accused of adultery and in danger of being executed (she was later exonerated after Muhammad received a “revelation” requiring four witnesses for a sexual transgression). So if Taimoor Raza has been sentenced to death for insulting the first three caliphs, which is what is likely meant by “Sunni Muslim religious leaders,” and the “wives of the Prophet Mohammed,” by which is almost certainly meant Aisha, Pakistan’s government is essentially criminalizing Shi’ite Islam.

In any case, this is the future of the supine and cowed West, unless things change drastically.
