From 'Freedom of Expression' to 'Blasphemy' to 'Violent Protests'. Your thoughts and views on it.

A far-right Islamist political party in Pakistan is protesting against the government and demands the expulsion of French ambassador. It all started last year when a French Teacher was beheaded by a radical Islamic terrorist for advocating the freedom of expression given to French media for publishing cartoons that are blasphemous.

Immediately after the incident this far-right party Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) protested and urged people of Pakistan especially their supporters to boycott French products and asked government to finish all the diplomatic ties with France. The current Pakistani government requested TLP party to give them some time to think over the issue.

TLP and it's supporters could not wait anymore and they are back to protest. This time they are not ready to fall back. Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan is trying to explain to the protestors that expulsion of French ambassador may backfire. It would not only be a loss of trade and business but the entire [b]European Union[/b] might turn against Pakistan. Things might become difficult for Pakistanis in Europe. Yet, protestors are adamant and want their demands met before things take a wrong turn.

Far-Right groups be it of Pakistan, India (the current Indian government is right turned far-right fascist), Spain, Italy or any other country in the world; the truth is they only cause problems and wide-spread hatred (be it for minorities, a particular community or for other nations across the globe).

No one knows far-right folks better than me because I got influenced by far-right folks few years ago. I left them when I learnt all they were feeding us were sheer lies and false facts. My family saved me from becoming a Monster! I have criticized them a lot in my other posts.
F*ck blasphemy laws. If God is that sensitive maybe he should show up and fight himself.

[@406636,causernamebemyusername] God may not sensitive but his followers are!
I think, there should be an open debate and both sides should conclude something positive at the end. Both need to understand each other.

[@1078904,SoLeRiMix] [@1078904,SoLeRiMix] [@1078904,SoLeRiMix] I hope there is a spirit world. religions came about as a way for primitive people to explain stuff they did not understand. like they came up with thor to explain thunder. here are Muslims and what they do. remember they flew planes into our twin towers. Remember the picture of the young women holding her dress down to be proper as she jumped to her death from the burning building.

To an extent it is right!👍

Not all Muslims can be held accountable for this. Just like not every Caucasian person should be held accountable for wiping out natives and slavery.

Remember, good and bad are in every race and community. I was brainwashed by Far-Right folks with such thoughts and false facts. I regret being a part of them to date. They were turning me into a monster for their political benefit. I learnt the truth about their real intentions and I left them. Please don't fall for such extremist views.🙏

I thought islamists couldnt be "far right"?
SoLeRiMix · 31-35, M
[@321829,pianoplayingsteve] This is exactly what I have been saying. Both sides need to sit and discuss the issue peacefully. I think, a healthy discussion can help them reach a good conclusion. Both sides need to understand each other.

[@1078904,SoLeRiMix] See my previous posts. I dont identify with either side as I like to draw good ideas from all walks of life. But typically when I talk to someone on the "right" they give me data, stats, experience etc and are generally very respectful, charitable and even offer to help me with things. But typically when I ask questions to people on the left, they dont have any answers or facts for anything, they dont know why they beelieve what they do. It's just "well those that disagree are -negative label-" and it just turns into them throwing some label at me, treating me awfully, just for questioning the slightest detail. The left is the issue when it comes to not being able to have a dialogue, majorly. Coming from someone who traditionally has sympathies for any left leaning ideas.

[@321829,pianoplayingsteve] Just like you even I believe in blend of different political ideologies. I completely respect your view-point. This is exactly how a democracy works. Both sides should get a chance to express their views. Enforcing your view-point (be far-left, left, centre, right or far-right) on people is completely unacceptable. People should listen to each other and try to conclude something acceptable to everyone.

For example:

I support Far-Right's idea of not allowing Muslims (especially women) to wear their ethnic outfits (veil, borqa and hijab) in Europe. At the same time, I disagree with them for treating every Muslim as a terrorist.

Muslims need to understand that their orthodox religious beliefs and Sharia law holds no place in European nations. European nations need to understand that blasphemous articles should be stopped because they are disturbing and do hurt feelings and emotions (religious sentiments) of a community. Together, both sides can agree to each other.
this is a drawing of the Prophet in a pitch black room. can you see him ??

[@449169,YourMomsForbiddenCrush] Well, one can see God and his prophets anywhere and everywhere, provided he/she is devoted to them and has complete faith in them.

I think, there should be an open debate and both sides should conclude something positive at the end. Both need to understand each other.
