Religious dimension to the Easter Sunday clashes

Continues from the Easter Sunday bombing in Pakistan.

The army was called in to Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital, after thousands of demonstrators clashed with police — see Al Jazeera report yesterday.

Islamist protestors were rallying in solidarity for Malik Mumtaz Qadri who was executed earlier this month. He had been found guilty of assassinating Punjab governor Salmaan Taseer.

The late governor was against the misuse of Pakistan’s blasphemy law under which Christians were prosecuted for insulting Islam and/or the Prophet.

Pakistan is one of the countries where Muslim-Christian animosity is most acute. Police are required to stand guard over church services on Sunday due to bombings that target the congregation.


I have no Faceook or Twitter.

  1. “DAP blames The Star for misleading info on guan eng”

    Helen, time to split DAP and MCA via The Star.

    1. What do you expect? Knowing DAP , they will blame anybody when they are confronted with problems which they can’t give reasonable explanation. The easiest way out in such situation is to blame others. The Star is just to be made a scapegoat temporary, nothing more.
