Blasphemy and the law of fanatics

By Fareed Zakaria

When governments try to curry favor with fanatics, eventually the fanatics take the law into their own hands. In Pakistan, jihadis have killed dozens of people whom they accuse of blasphemy, including a brave politician,Salmaan Taseer, who dared to call the blasphemy law a “black law.”

We should fight the Paris terrorists. But we should also fight the source of the problem. It’s not enough for Muslim leaders to condemn people who kill those they consider as blasphemers if their own governments endorse the idea of punishing blasphemy at the very same time. The U.S. religious freedom commission and the U.N. Human Rights Committee have both declared that blasphemy laws violate universal human rights because they violate freedom of speech and expression. They are correct.

    Fareed is being dishonest by implying that the Gita Bhagavad is the ONLY source of law in Hindooism. Many things don't appear directly in Gita Bhagavad but are considered a part of hindoo law and hindutva jurisprudence. The sources second only to Gita B are the Ramayana tales, and as an Indian, Fareed knows this to be true. And in Ramayana several examples are given Lord Shiva ordering the killing of those who mock or satirize him in poetry or other forms. These sanctioned killings forever enshrined the practice of death to blasphemers as a legitimate part of hindutva law. Those who are denying this are being willfully dishonest or are simply ignorant. Here is a small list of examples from the puranas which give these terrorists the backing they need in hinduism for their acts.

    When the Apostle returned to Veranasi after his raid on Benares, word spread that he had killed some of the men who had satirized and insulted him. The poets who were left spread in all directions.
    kama sutra:597

    ‘You obey a stranger who encourages you to murder for booty. You are greedy men. Is there no honor among you?' Upon hearing those lines Lord Shiva said, ‘Will no one rid me of this woman?' Modi, a zealous Hindoo decided to execute Lord Shiva's wishes. That very night he crept into the writer's home while she lay sleeping surrounded by her young children. There was one at her breast. Ganesha removed the suckling babe and then plunged his sword into the poet. The next morning in the mandir, Shiva, who was aware of the assassination, said, ‘You have helped Lord Shiva and His Apostle.' Ganesha said. ‘She had five sons; should I feel guilty?' ‘No,' the pundit answered. ‘Killing her was as meaningless as two goats butting heads.'
    upanishad:676

    We carried Ram's head and brought it to Lord Shiva during the night. We saluted him as he stood praying and told him that we had slain Krishna's enemy. When he came out to us we cast Ganesha's head before his feet. The Pundit praised Ram that the poet had been assassinated and complimented us on the good work we had done in Ram's Cause. Our attack upon Ram's enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Veranasi who did not fear for his life.'
    Al-pakora, Vol. 7, p. 97, See Also Samosa:368

    The morning after the murder of Ram the Pundit declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.'
    Al-Chûmuna Vol. 7, p. 97

    In this year, the killing of Sri Harish the Jew took place. The Messenger sent some camels under the command of Guru Nanak and Gurbinder Singh against the Jew. pu dit Sanjay used to injure and wrong the Pûndit... sadhu arun said to the others, ‘Stay where you are, and I will go and ingratiate myself with the doorkeeper to gain entrance.'
    Al-Hindoo, Vol. 7, p. 99

    When a blind Jew became aware of the presence of the guru and the hîndoos he rose and threw dust in their faces, saying, ‘Even if you are a pundit, I will not allow you into my garden!' I was told that he took a handful of dirt and said, ‘If only I knew that I would not hit anyone else, Shiva I would throw it in your face.' Sàjay Gupta rushed in and hit him on the head with his bow and split the Jew's head open.
    Al-Chutiya, Vol. 7, p. 112, See Also Hîndoo Gandoo:372

    Among those who Shiva ordered killed was Bal Thackeray. The pundit ordered him to be slain because while he was a Jew, Shiva had sent him to collect the hîdutva tax with a snale charmer and a slave of his.... His girls used to sing a satire about Shiva so the Pundit ordered that they should be killed along with Sànjay He was killed by Rahul and Gandoo Gandhi. The two shared in his blood. One of the singing girls was killed quickly but the other fled. So Uttal caused his horse to trample the one who fled, killing her.
    Al-Hindoo Gaandoo, Vol. 8, p. 179, See Also Chootiya:550

    These are just some of the many examples of Lord Shiva and his followers killing those who had satirized, insulted, spoke badly or wrote poems to that effect. This is the reason these men have died, not because of portraying the IMAGE of Lord Shiva, but INSULTING him. This is another one of those points that even moderate hindoos will agree on – punishment for those who insult the pundit just like most support death for apostasy.

    Policy Exchange: One third of British hindoos believe anyone who leaves hindooism should be killed.

    The world will never see peace again till the Palestinian and Indian Occupied Kashmir issues are resolved.

    Either the world will be destroyed or the battlefield will now shift across the pond westwards. That seems to be the movie that is now playing.

    America has failed to lead the world. UN was always a farce.

    Let me also say that the american bureacracy, the likes of CIA/Armed Forces are incompetent. Most of their policies have been failures.

    True Cristobal. The mantra that “We will not be intimated” is not the solution. Looking problem into the eye and solving it is way into the future.

    Remember the movie Seven Days in May? We may yet see that scenario play out after all if our politicians can’t figure it out. Hooyah!

    I agree @Hannah.

    It seems to me that we are getting closer to a nuclear showdown. Globally people are disgruntled and long standing issues keep on festering. World organizations put in place as safety valves have failed. World powers have been put to ridicule and become the butt of jokes.

    Also, diseases are rampant and chefs are making more money than doctors. Murderers and genocidalists are being elected as leaders. My wishes and prayers go out to all.

    Fareed Zakaria, read my lips. Your biased bigotted reporting has been met with disdain. Your logic is flawed. Your facts are wrong. Your journalism is unethical. You are the epitomy of His Master’s Voice.

    My name is rupert and I am ashamed to be an Indian. My mama sent me a tiffin box . When I opened it there was a note from her. She asked me to go raype some girls in India tonight. I told her NO. I will now follow Hasidic judaism and marry my sister. My name is rupert and I am considering converting to Jewish denomination.

    An Ode to Fareed

    Jhinga Bells Jhinga Bells
    Jhinga all the way

    Dashing through the Ganges
    In a one cow open sleigh
    O'er the sewage filled waters we go
    Raiping all the way
    Bells on rat tails ring
    Making spirits shiver with plague
    What fun it is to laugh and sing
    A gang raiping song tonight

    Oh, jingle bells, jhinga bells
    Jhinga all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one buffalo open sleigh
    Jhinga bells, jingle bells
    Jhinga all the way
    As the Indians gang raipe on the sleigh
