Islamofascists protesting against Islamophobia

Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?

Submitted by Hari Iyer (United States), Oct 26, 2005 at 00:40

That there are countries whose governments institutionalize discrimination of non-muslims and treat the non-muslims as second class citizens is reason enough for me to treat muslims as neo-fascists or islamo fascists.

Now take a look at a simple passport application for Pakistani nationals in this link. Go to question number #16 and educate yourself. That open discrimination instititutionalized by govt exists today is beyond me. Why bring religion into the passport application? Why use name-calling to target a minority ahmedia community who believe in another prophet besides muhammed?

And remember, this is supposedly by a govt that describes itself moderate.

Now take a look at the letters to editor in one of the newspapers in Pakistan, dailytimes.com.pk
A reader describes a "mullah' justifying the killing of non-muslims as ok in a national tv interview hosted by one of pakistani tv network and seen by many pakistanis.

Here is the link.

Here is the letter:

Shocking

Sir: I was shocked to hear Mufti Muneeb say in GEO's Alim Online programme that killing Ahmadis was justified.

The host Dr Amir Liaquat Hussain's profile on the GEO website makes him out to be an educated person. How could he allow such comments to be telecast?
