Islamabad cleric Hafiz Muhammad Zubair (left) and angry Muslims over alleged blasphemy

One of my recent posts described Israeli parliament member, Dr. Michael Ben-Ari, tearing out the pages of the New Testament from a free Bible mailed to him by a Christian organization in Israel. As we all know, there was no retaliation by Christians for Ben-Ari’s destruction of the New Testament. Not so when it comes to Islam, the so-called “religion of peace.” In the article linked below, a 12-year old girl named “Rimsha,” with Down’s Syndrome, is alleged to have been holding, in public, two burnt pages containing Islamic text and Koranic verses on them. The punishment inflicted upon the child? Initially, she was padlocked in her home, awaiting trial to determine if she had desecrated the Qur’an.

Muktan Khan, Muslim neighbor of Rimsha vows she will never again live in this neighborhood.

She is now being held in jail awaiting the next stage of her trial. Why does it matter? The punishment for desecrating the Qur’an is the death penalty. The details follow.
