Today’s radical debate, as well as the global talk of the town is “Mr. ABC or Ms. XYZ has an ‘absolute right’ to free speech”.
This dogma-notion is narrated and re-narrated by many people so senselessly and inconsiderately, that it appears as if they have never paused for a moment and thought of the essential implications for what they are stating or asserting of.
So thoughtlessly, not only the in the public orbits, but also many of the so-called communal ‘opinion-builders’ are onto the ‘dogma’, that they aren’t even aware of the far-reaching corollary repercussions, its consequential upshots and the socio-moral reverberations associated thereto.
Rationality for Limiting Free Speech:
Exercising ‘free speech’, that may ardently injure or sensitively indignant a certain ethnicity, is criminalized. Henceforth, the sacrileges and profanities crossing all the limits of ethical or moral codes and even humanity-based values, cannot, by any means or on any account, be rationalized to be permissible or tolerable to mutilate, harm and detriment the inter-ethnic peace of global communities by planting the seeds of hatred abhorrence or tarnished blasphemies.…???
There exists nowhere in the world where licenses can be granted that one can flagrantly say and blatantly express whatever he or she likes to; but reasonably, there are certain limits that one is supposed to be within.
However, pretty conversely, the kind of the ‘moral trait-outlook’ manifested by certain vagrants and nomad quarters, on the face of ‘free speech’, is neither explicable nor justifiable on the least of any judicial, moral, ethical or humanitarian accounts!
Blasphemy and the Free-speech?
Blasphemy is internationally defined as ‘any expression by word, sign, or gesture’, that is insulting to the religion. It impairs man’s reverence for religion which includes blasphemes libels, pictures, caricature, which convey a blasphemous meaning.
Advocating for open license to the ‘free speech’ and spreading the dogma-notion behind this, is nothing, but a clumsily and maladroitly ‘disgraceful enough’ modality of ridiculous manifestations by deflated societies, having no acclimatization of moral perspectives.
Most of the religions prescribe a criminal charged with blasphemy to be killed. Muslim creed-scripts also prescribe the same measure of punishment, and by the artifacts of definition, in principle agree with the definition given by union of international connotation-inferences.
The repetitive recurrences of venomously immoral blasphemies by Jyllands-Posten, Charlie Hebdo, AFDI and certain other quarters, which they used to carry out in a cyclical way, repeatedly and continually since 2006, has induced an intense distress and irritation the whole Muslim world. In order to demonstrate deep concerns on the issue, as well as to analyze the nefarious designs behind, an assemblage of cross-disciplinary and cross-boundary academicians, has made considerations in order to reach certain conclusions, regarding the issue.
A thematic panel discussion was held at Higher Education Commission Pakistan, to elucidate the academic position of the issue. Presided by Justice (R) Mian Nazir Akhtar the HEC anti-blasphemy session at was conducted by Lt. Col. (R) Azhar Saleem. Academics from SAARC Academia, along with missionary school leaders and law practitioners from Lahore High-court expressed their deep concerns on the intensifying situation. Prof. Qadhi A. Z. Al-Hafi presented a plan of action to address the perplexing circumstances. Professor Emeritus Dr. Zaki Ahmad made strong recommendations in the inter-contextual relatedness of human values and blasphemous profanities.
In addition to the contemplative ponderings, Cherif and Said Kouachi have been declared ‘Martyrdoms’ and ‘Ghazis’, on the account that they gunned down the Hebdo cursers for the reason of the repeated and cyclical blasphemous acts, that French publisher, Charlie Hebdo used to carry out repetitively since 2006.
In his presidential address Justice (R) Mian Nazir Akhtar quoted Khawaja Muhammad Sharif’s statement for the brothers, who sacrificed their lives.
Former chief justice of Pakistan’s Lahore High Court, Khawaja Muhammad Sharif has formally declared Cherif and Said Kouachi ‘protagonist-heroes’ in an official statement, that was recorded during a hearing session of Sulman Taseer’s murder case at high court.
Cherif and Said Kouachi have been declared ‘Martyrdoms’, on the account that they gunned down the Hebdo cursers for the reason of the repeated and cyclical blasphemous acts, that French publisher, Charlie Hebdo used to carry out repetitively since 2006.
The two assassin brothers, who eventually turned to be murdered by the French authorities and police consequently, have been declared as ‘leading-role heroes’ and ‘Protagonist Martyrdoms’, by numerous leaders of political parties, seminaries and councils of legislatures.
Pakistani minorities’ leader J. Salik made high condemnations on the blasphemous acts of Charlie Hebdo and categorically cited for the sentiments of Vatican’s Pope Francis, concerning the sensitivity of the subject-matter. Vatican Pope’s statement noticeably and evidently provides the baseline position and very clearly states for what constitutes the conceivable ‘base-line’, concerning the subject under consideration.
The HEC thematic session was attended by representatives of civil society including Qadhi Muzaffar Iqbal, Maj(R) Jalil, Muhammad Afzal Zikriya, Mufti Muhammad Khan, Maulana Khurshid Kasuri and Lt. Col. Rizwan.
About the SAARC Anti-blasphemy Commission:
SAARC Anti-blasphemy Commission has been formed for serious considerations regarding the repetitively cyclical blasphemous acts by certain notorious quarters like Jyllands-Posten, Charlie Hebdo, AFDI, Pamela Geller etc.
Directed by Dr. Faisar N.M. from Sri Lanka and Dr. Bareera N.B. from Pakistan, the commission currently consists of academicians from diverse disciplines and different creeds, mainly from India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Lt. Col.(R) Azhar Saleem is serving as chief coordinator of the commission.
SAARC Anti-blasphemy Commission has made extensive academic meetings on the subject, nationwide and across the region. Amongst the prominent ones are anti-blasphemy thematic and strategic-assemblies at SAARC Post-doc Center Colombo, Riphah International University Pakistan, University of Matra Sri Lanka, Punjab University Lahore, Mansoorah and HEC.
SAARC Anti-blasphemy Commission is positioning an analytical discourse of the subject-matter, under the present state of affairs’ circumstantiality and the promoters of free speech dogmatization, especially the publicists like AFDI’s Pamela Geller, who continuously use to plant the seeds of hatred detestations.
Pamela Geller’s Track-record:
Pamela Geller has an evident track record for stoking up the flames of ethnic hate and promoting hatred content and abhorrence that is progressively proceeding towards austere racial hatred revulsions and animosity conflicts. AFDI and Pamela Geller, both have used to carry out repeated and cyclical blasphemous acts, repetitively.
She has got notorious escalations in promoting ethnic hate through heavy-funded networks of racial activism throughout the globe.
Not needed to mention, Geller has long continued to push hatred, revulsive and rhetoric pomposity through her writings, magniloquence and a series of transit ads.
After having due considerations of Anders Behring Breivik’s case (the Norwegian drastic radical, who in 2011, became responsible for murdering 76 persons during a shooting rampage, and cited Pamela Geller in his manifesto), the AFDI was labelled as a ‘hate group’ by the UK authorities.
