Pakistan wants to abolish freedom of speech…from the whole world!
According to this news article:
Pakistan will ask the European Union countries to amend laws regarding freedom of expression in order to prevent offensive incidents such as the printing of blasphemous caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and the production of an anti-Islam film by a Dutch legislator, sources in the Interior Ministry told Daily Times on Saturday.
The delegation, headed by an additional secretary of the Interior Ministry, will meet the leaders of the EU countries in a bid to convince them that the recent attack on the Danish Embassy in Pakistan could be a reaction against the blasphemous campaign, sources said.
They said that the delegation would also tell the EU that if such acts against Islam are not controlled, more attacks on the EU diplomatic missions abroad could not be ruled out.
Ok, first of all outlawing free expression is not considered “amending” the freedom of epxression laws, it is outright deleting such freedoms, blowing them to bits completely. I expect nothing less than a “get the fuck out of here” from the EU to the Pakistani delegation.
Secondly, is it just me or do their arguments about the violence sounds a whole lot like blackmail? More attacks on the EU diplomatic missions abroad could not be ruled out? Now, European’s have evolved into a quite non-confrontational bunch as of late, the proper way to evolve as modern societies I think, but I don’t think even they will back down in front of such shameless bullying.
I think the Pakistani delegation will get a respectful bitch slapping, which it wholly deserves and be sent packing back to the caves they crawled out of. Or maybe, in accordance with the amendments they suggest, they should just be told to “shut the fuck up” and “sit their ass down and not make a sound” while everyone else points at them and laughs. Why not? They are the ones suggesting this kind of bullshit!
