Christians in Pakistan demand a ban on the Qur'an...wait, what?

As the Qur'an tells Muslims "And when ye meet those who misbelieve then striking off heads until ye have massacred them, and bind fast the bonds!"(47-4).  Also read sura 3 verse 28 which tells Muslims to "Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends rather than believers; and whoever does this, he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) Allah, but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully; and Allah makes you cautious of (retribution from) Himself; and to Allah is the eventual coming."

I would agree with Christians if they wanted to try and ban the Qur'an, it is a collection of hateful vitriol against non-Muslims which, when followed to the letter provides us with endless accounts of murder, rape, torture and general mayhem.  However, in this case it is Muslims, jihadists actually who are demanding that the Bible be banned beacuse it is "pornographic " and a "blasphemous book". 

Interesting irony, as Jesus is called a prophet in the Qur'an, but then is chastized for performing shirk, or the assignment of others as equals to Allah.  You just can't win with Islamic doctrine.

Pakistani Muslims demand a ban on the Bible

The Islamic party of Pakistan, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, has filed an appeal to the Supreme Court of Pakistan and launched a campaign asking to ban the circulation of the Bible, described as a "pornographic " and "blasphemous book".

This is a new attack against the Christian community in Pakistan, frightened by the attacks and threats suffered after the death of Bin Laden, already under attack due to the damaging effects of the blasphemy law, with the consequence of death penalty to those who insult the Koran or the Prophet Muhammad. The radical group Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, with its headquarters in Karachi, launched the campaign at a public conference.

According to the group's leader, Abdul Rauf Farooqi, some passages of the Bible describe characters that Muslims regard as prophets as being "vicious and immoral".
Unlike Muhammad, who as we all know was as peaceful as Ghandi, as benevolent as Pope John Paul II, as humanitarian as Mother Teresa and as loving as the Dali Lama.

 "It is a move that could fuel religious hatred against Christians. It is a threat to peaceful coexistence, an attack on the heart of our faith", says a bewildered Fr. Saleh Diego, who presides over the "Justice and Peace Commission" in the Archdiocese of Karachi. "As Christians we are already very weak and subject to pressures for the unjust blasphemy law. These radical groups want to delete us entirely. Sure, they are only minority groups, and we hope for the rise of voices of moderate Muslim leaders to stop this campaign of hatred...

Any minute now, moderate Muslim leaders will be pouring out of the woodwork to denounce the violence against Christians, and present a reform plan which will bring Islam in line with the rest of the world's great religions.
