Muslim spokesman blames Christianity for Islamic blasphemy laws
Muslim spokesman blames Christianity for Islamic blasphemy laws by Christine Williams.
It is characteristic of Islamic supremacists to blame the Christian, the Jew, colonialism, imperialism and/or the West for any Muslim failure, misdeed and misfortune. Qasim Rashid, in his column below, claims that his tiny Ahmadi sect supports the freedom of speech, but he blames Christianity for Islamic blasphemy laws, while exonerating Islam from any responsibility for them. Rashid falsely claims that blasphemy laws are “not Islamic at all,” even though they are very Islamic. Sharia law is considered divine law and it encompasses both the hadith and the Quran. The hadith is explicit on blasphemy laws, but Rashid, like many others, relies on Western ignorance about Islam. In fact, his reputation precedes him as a professional liar.
