Pakistan: Man gets ten years prison for blasphemy for misquoting a hadith

Ten years for a misquote! But at least they didn’t give him the death penalty: they must be moderates. “Man jailed for 10 years in blasphemy case,” by Nabeel Anwar Dhakku in Dawn, January 10 (thanks to Daoud):

CHAKWAL: After a trial spread over 14 months and conducted in an uneasy environment, Additional District and Sessions Judge Raja Pervez Akhtar jailed a blasphemy accused for 10 years and imposed a fine of Rs200,000 on Tuesday evening.

The verdict left the lawyers of both groups baffled and they now intend to go to the Lahore High Court “” one would file an appeal for getting the sentence quashed while the other would file a review petition.

Convict Ghulam Ali Asghar, a resident of Chinji village in Talagang tehsil, was booked on Nov 17, 2011, on a charge of blaspheming the Holy Prophet (PBUH) by misquoting a Hadith in Punjabi language.

Judge Raja Pervez Akhtar acquitted Ghulam Ali Asghar of the allegation levelled under 295-C (the section which forbids blaspheming the Holy Prophet [PBHU]), but imprisoned him for ten years under 295-A (which forbids outraging religious feelings) and also imposed a fine of Rs200,000. The convict will have to undergo an additional jail term of six months if he does not pay the fine.

    I think this is great! Now every muslim in Pakistan can/should be imprisoned for misquoting a hadith, since there are multiple versions available to be offended with.
    Let the whole muslim community be incarcerated so no one is left to feed and care for them while in jail. (assuming all Hindus and Christians have already fled the counry or been murdered by them)

    The OT is sacred text per the Qur’an. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if every time a Pakistani Muslim apologist quoted it out of context he was subject to persecution under 295-C? Beautiful dreamer, come back to me….La la la la la, La la la la….

    I’m really tired of every time some says “the holy prophet, etc.” is is followed by the (PBUH)

    I don’t wish any “praise” to be upon him, he isn’t holy by any stretch of my imagination. I rather say p.i.s.s. be upon him.

    I’m disgusted by what he stands for and the ignorant masses that follow that unholy book!

    Pakistan is an artificial country set up at partition to specifically suit the needs of Muslims, barely 60 years ago.
    Curiously it is riven by the same divisions and religious hatreds as most other Muslim
    countries. This is an example of the perfect world we are led to believe would exist if all the rest of us damned infidels converted to Islam?

    Now every muslim in Pakistan can/should be imprisoned…

    I agree John but I’m not sure there is enough barbed wire in Pakistan to do it…maybe we should send them some…Every kuffar should send the Pakistan gov one foot of barbed wire, UPS COD…

    “Don’t the idiots know their own idiotic texts?”

    Muslim idiots don’t read, and if they do they don’t understand and if they do understand, they don’t do anything about it.

    What would you do if you were a Muslim and accidently read the following hadith?

    “Narrated Ibn Abbas: I saw the Prophet (pbuh) putting Hussein’s thighs apart and kissing his (little) penis.” (Talkhis al-Habir, Ibn Hajar # 61)
