On Monday, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said he would launch an international campaign to outlaw criticism of Islam and usher in Sharia blasphemy laws. The Islamic leader appealed to Muslim countries and left-wing governing bodies, the United Nations and the European Union, for their continued help in outlawing speech.
“When we begin a campaign by bringing together all Muslim countries [against Islamophobia and blasphemy], it will make a difference, and change will come in the West,” Khan said at a televised ceremony in the capital Islamabad.
The campaign, he said, will help find a “permanent” solution to these issues. Under Sharia, those who insult Muhammad or Allah are to be executed, as are those who desecrate the Quran or commit other acts of blasphemy.
Otherwise, he added, protests and violence will make no difference to the Western world.
Khan referred to the ongoing protests across the country by the Islamic terrorist group, Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP). The Muslim organization has been demanding the expulsion of the French ambassador over Charlie Hebdo magazine’s republication of Muhammad cartoons in France last year.
The French government even advised its citizens to leave Pakistan due to the violent Islamic anti-French protests.
“There will come a time when people in the Western countries will think twice before disrespecting the Holy Prophet (PBUH),” threatened Khan. The Prime Minister assured TLP that his interests are aligned with theirs.
Muslims have already put the French and the rest of the free world on notice: if you insult Muhammad, Islam, their holy books, or even fail to consider Islamic law (Sharia) in all things, we will harm you.
Last week, Khan demanded that Western countries outlaw blasphemy of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad and “penalize those deliberately spreading their message of hate against Muslims”.
Expressing concern over a rising wave of Islamophobia, particularly in the West, Khan stated in a series of tweets, “I call on Western governments who have outlawed any negative comment on the holocaust to use the same standards to penalize those deliberately spreading their message of hate against Muslims by abusing our Prophet (PBUH).”
Protests broke across Pakistan and several Muslim countries over French President Emmanuel Macron’s response to the decapitation of teacher Samuel Paty.
Paty showed students a Charlie Hebdo cartoon during a class discussion on terrorism and the 2015 attacks at the satirical magazine’s office. A father of one of the female Muslim students and an Imam ran an online campaign against Samuel Paty for “blasphemy” against Muhammad. A few weeks later, an 18-year-old Chechen Muslim refugee beheading him outside the school.
Following the horrific attack, French President Emmanuel Macron said he would “not give up our cartoons” and he would target what he called “Islamist separatism” Macron described Islam as “a religion in crisis.
Muslims Nations Fight To Criminalize Speech
Pakistan’s calls for speech suppression in the wake of the beheading of Samuel Paty is part of an ongoing initiative by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to implement blasphemy laws across the world.
The OIC is an influential bloc of 57 Muslim countries whose primary objective is to pressure Europe and the United States into passing laws that would ban “negative stereotyping of Islam.” The OIC is headquartered in Saudi Arabia and funded by Islamic countries worldwide. It is the second-largest intergovernmental organization in the world after the United Nations, with a collective population reaching over 1.8 billion. Pakistan holds a very privileged status in the OIC; it is the OIC’s second-largest member in terms of population.
The European Union and the United States Democratic Party have worked closely with the OIC and UN to outlaw all forms of “Islamophobia.” The term Islamophobia was invented in the 1990s by a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood to help export blasphemy laws to the West. Similarly, the term “Hate speech” is the Marxist version of Islamic blasphemy laws.
The “Islamophobia” and “hate speech” scams are insidious because they shut down the most important of American values, freedom of speech.
Blasphemy Laws Introduced To America and EU
In recent years, one of the core activities of the OIC has been repeated attempts to introduce via the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) a law which is referred to as Resolution 16/18, forbidding any form of blasphemy, criticism, or negative comment about the Islamic religion.
Resolution 16/18 was co-sponsored by the United States, along with Pakistan. During a series of closed-door meetings over at least three years, it was spearheaded by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Following the Obama Administration’s lead, the European Union offered to help the OIC make it an international crime to criticize Islam.
In America in 2016, Eighty-two Democrats cosponsored a House Resolution (H.Res. 569) “Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.” This resolution is very eerily similar to the UN Human Rights Commission’s Resolution 16/18.
The OIC has used its influence in Brussels to enact “hate speech” legislation to limit what European citizens can say. Restrictions on free speech regarding Islam-related issues are already commonplace throughout Europe. (see here, here, here, and here). The OIC aims to impose blasphemy legislation on the European Union’s 27 member states.
The attempt to enact special legislation to protect Islam in Western and secular nations is a joint Islamic and Marxist effort to stop any form of dissenting expression. Dissenting expression is typically any attempt to defend Western, and especially American culture, values, and identity.
Should “Democratic” countries allow special rights for one group and not others? Islam, perhaps above all, embodies little tolerance for other religions – or even lack of religion. Affording Islam – or anyone – special rights is the death knell for a society based on equal rights.
Both Islamic law (Sharia) and Marxist thought are not just incompatible with Western culture but designed specifically to be a destructive force to the Judeo-Christian values historically associated with the West.
Pakistan and other Muslim countries’ protests in response to Macron’s refusal to ban Charlie Hebdo cartoons and other perceived insults are part of an orchestrated plan specifically tailored to dismantle free expression and usher in Islamic law.
