Blasphemy carries a sentence of death, and his crime is throwing away a business card of a man named Mohammed

KARACHI, Pakistan — Pakistani authorities have arrested a doctor on suspicion of violating the country's contentious blasphemy law by throwing away a business card of a man who shared the name of Islam's prophet, Muhammad, police said Sunday.

The blasphemy law has been widely criticized by human rights groups following the case of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman sentenced to death last month for insulting Islam. Critics say the law should be amended or repealed because it is often used to settle grudges, persecute minorities and fan religious extremism.

Naushad Valiyani, a Muslim doctor in the southern city of Hyderabad, was arrested Friday after a complaint was lodged with police alleging his actions had insulted the Prophet Muhammad, said regional police chief Mushtaq Shah.

The case began Friday when Muhammad Faizan, a pharmaceutical company representative, visited Valiyani's clinic and handed out his business card. He said when the doctor threw the card away, Faizan went to police and filed a complaint that noted his name was the same as the prophet's.

Shah said police were investigating whether Valiyani should be charged with blasphemy.

Dozens of Pakistanis are sentenced to death each year under the blasphemy law, though most cases are thrown out by higher courts and no executions have been carried out. The law, however, is unlikely to be repealed because the government's ruling party — largely secular — relies on the support of Islamist groups.

Islamist political parties have recently demonstrated in support of the law and the sentence against Bibi. One hard-line cleric said if the government did not execute Bibi, his mosque would pay anyone who killed her $5,800.

The family of Bibi — a mother of five — insists she was falsely accused over a personal dispute. There have been appeals from around the globe — including one from Pope Benedict XVI — to pardon her. But the government has said it is first waiting for a court ruling on her appeal.

Pakistan's minister for minority affairs has said the law is being examined to prevent widespread abuse.

I was under the impression the name Muhammad was prohibited in Islam, though Mohammad may be used.

cos they allow their country to be taken over by extremist mullahs and corrupt politicians, and keep voting in some of the world's worst people to run their country, when they could be moving towards being a reasonably propsperous democratic nation

imo god merely used the rainbow to present the sinners with a dichotomy, showing both his benevolence and omnipotence.

The covenant borders upon insignificance and was effectively a plea for mercy

Is it a crime to protect the the man that gave you life when he is unable to defend himself?

the benevolence was the rainbow, ie light at the end of the tunnel

the omnipotence was the flooding, showing his power over the universe

Well schooled eh

Can you answer me this: why does extinction exist?

Yes.

Out with the old, in with the new

all great empires fall, and are replaced by new 1s, despite periods of periodic darkness

the only being that lasts for eternity is God the Almighty Saviour, everyone else dies at some point

essentially without extinction there would be no need for heaven

That doesn't make any sense bro, especially not theologically

I guess you don't know as much as you thought you did

On topic:

All these middle eastern nations indulge in the sort of barbarism that would shock us. People getting their arms broken for stealing or w.e, tongues being sliced, hands being surgically removed.
