BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 P.M.) – The conservative Islamist political alliance Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) flooded the streets of Lahore on Thursday, demanding from the Supreme Court to reverse the acquittal of a Christian woman condemned to death for blasphemy.

Leaders of the Islamist conservative alliance Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), took the stage to denounce the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the death conviction of Asia Bibi for blasphemy.

The president of the MMA alliance, Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, stated that “we will never hesitate to scarify lives to honour the Prophet,” calling for the Supreme Court to revert its verdict “or this agitation will continue.”

Asia Bibi was sentenced to death by hanging in 2010 for allegedly making derogatory remarks about the Prophet Muhammad during a dispute with co-workers.

The dispute arose after she was reprimanded for drinking water from her neighbours’ glass because she’s not a Muslim, reports say.

Bibi has denied the allegations but has spent most of the last eight years in solitary confinement. On November, Pakistan’s Supreme Court overturned her conviction citing flimsy evidence.

Islam is no religion of peace and understanding as long as Islamists have a say.

Actually, it’s not the islamists : it’s Islam saying that ‘kâfir’ shall convert, pay the jizya (religious racket) or… die…
Thus, by essence, Islam is a mortal enemy for any non muslim.
The only way they see “peace” would be a world free of non-muslims…
And they killed about 750 millions people over 1400 years on this purpose.

@Daeshbags-Sux, I know that the Jihadi and many Muslim say that certain texts say so. But they are wrong and Munafiqun because they know that it is only a ruse to give them a better life. IMHO. That is why our ancestors with God stopped the Jihadi of the past when the Muslims had numbers, arms, power and riches beyond ours. p.s. The interpretation of the texts is hard because they were originally collected in Merw and only later shipped out and translated into current Arabic! Which is a deadly sin to say and know. But I dug a little…… Read more »

Dispute arose from her drinking from her neighbors glass. In other words Christians are dirty and cannot drink from a Muslim glass. Anyone who stands upto this type of bigotry is arrested for Blasphemy. This is why they’re protesting, the system of hatred toward infidels must be persevered. How are these Islamist any different than those Israeli Zionist protesting for war against the afflicted? Ignorance and Hatred are for the lazy, effort not required but peace and reason require effort and ardor, not the path of least resistance.

@Sweet Robert, All supremacists are the same. Not matter what nation or creed they are.

p.s. The Zionist elite still rules Israel but the Arab Jews there are already more numerous. All is in flux.
