    Why obvious Deference in Action? 295 C, 295-A, 7Ata,and Geo TV Pakistan

     
    Blasphemy and terrorism charges
    First of all I condemn the act of all people committed to blasphemy. And I’m very shocked on government & people behavior against the seen, declared and obvious culprits under the above cited law. We are witness Thousands of Christians Homes & individuals had burnt only because of 1 charge 295c in far & near past; in the ruling times of PMLN government.
    Now what is the specialty of these Blasphemers (blamed). Neither the government takes some action even FIR registered, nor the People even thrown a stone on Geo’s offices.
    Nobody had assembled crowed to invade (charge) on Blasphemers Homes why?
    I’m not in this favor at all that people take Law in their hands. Meanwhile I don’t like behavior of Government and civil society. In the Past we have seen the man or women charged for Blasphemy government and Police act like rocket. What is with this case?
    Recently we saw (13) thirteen biggest events out of them (1)Asia Bibi (2) Rishma Masih (3)Badmi Bag Lahore,(4) Gojra Fasilabad (5) Mamni wala Kasur are not far past events.
    Have look on other following sad incidents.

    (2) April 30, 1998, John Joseph gave a succinct account of fundamentalism. Called "The Challenges of Religious Fundamentalism and Violence to Social Harmony," this is a segment..
    (3) On October 14, 1996 Ayub Masih had been arrested, accused of breaching Section 295-C. Ayub Masih endured abuse in prison. He was stabbed in prison in early 1999. Though he attack was witnessed by jail staff, the four Muslims who carried out the assault were never punished. The prison staff even refused to allow him a doctor……

    The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan found that the incident of Gojra between religious communities was engineered by Sipah-e-Sahabah.
    Last week’s attacks on the Christian community in Gojra were not a spontaneous reaction to allegations of blasphemy but planned in advance, a fact-finding mission of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) said on Tuesday.
    The mission’s report said announcements made from mosques in Gojra on July 31 urged Muslims to gather and “make mincemeat of the Christians” over allegation of desecration of the Holy Quran a week earlier. Witnesses told HRCP that when they informed the police about the announcements, the police officials also confirmed hearing the announcements.
    On August 1, around 1,000 people gathered in the area and marched towards Christian Colony the HRCP said, adding that a police contingent present in the neighborhood did not try to stop the mob, which included a number of masked men.
    Witnesses said the attackers appeared trained for rioting and arson, the commission reported.
    The protesters carried inflammable substances and torched more than 40 houses of Christian families in less than half an hour, with many houses looted before being set on fire.
    They claimed that a number of attackers belonged to the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba and other extremist organizations.
    The regional police officer told HRCP that many of the attackers had come from outside the district, possibly Jhang.
    It said the local administration’s inaction was intriguing, adding that the tragic incidents were a ““comprehensive failure” by the government (Punjab's Chief Minister was Shahbaz sharif )to protect minorities.
    Relation of Rana Sana-Ullh with Sipah Sahaba Is obivous. who was Law minister of Punjab.
    Amid the assaults, the commission also noted that some Muslims in the neighbourhood provided shelter to Christian women fleeing the violence.
    It is important to note that a few weeks earlier, on similar patern, a train was set on fire by a mob during protests against Electricty Load Shedding. It was confirmed by local MNA that announcements were made from mosques under Sipah e Sahabah control and these were planned riots by an extremist group than a normal protest by citizens.
    (6) Mob of people angry at alleged blasphemy by a Christian burnt down three churches, a convent, a missionary school, a girls’ hostel and a pastor’s house in Sangla Hill, a small town in Nankana Sahib District. 500 Christian families living in Sangla Hill left the town the night before the attacks.

    Badami Bagh incident a failure of Punjab govt
    By: Alize Ahmed, Uploaded: 10th March 2013
    LAHORE: Badami Bagh incident is a clear indication of the fact that the provincial government has failed to protect the life and property of minorities.

    ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Ulema Council, Allama Tahir Ashrafi Tuesday said a conference participated by both religious and political parties will be convened to chalk out a strategy on the tragic incident of Badami Bagh and that a day of solidarity with Christians' community will be observed on coming Friday.
    Addressing a press conference here, Allama Tahir Ashrafi said had the culprits of Rimsha Masih case been punished the incident of Badami Bagh could have been averted.
    He said the Badami Bagh incident was a result of a brawl between two persons who sell liquor. "The Supreme Court should get to bottom of the issue and award strict punishment to the culprits," he appealed.
    He demanded that cases under section 295-C be lodged against the accused who torched a Bible and Chruch.
    More over other minorities ware also not saved in Pak but Christian community is the largest community so incident and damages of them are in large in numbers.
    Christian Employers of PMLN (MPAs MNAs & only Senator) were all equal responsible for all happened with Minorities, because they were compromised for their personal carriers and benefits. They kept criminal silent, As much as the voice against these should be firm and high, but wasn’t. Four parties cake distribution will be not allowed. Electrical media will be again in opposition. Be aware Media your tuff time is coming.
    Under the light of above mentioned few cases (apart that lot of incidents happened with other communities & with Muslims too I do not mentioned ) Attitude of government and people showing obvious difference which is shameful . Actions of Law, Civil society’s behavior should be equal for all citizens.
