EXCLUSIVE: “No, I think you don’t know the rules because you are using VHF”

This recording was made from a ship heading to the Persian Gulf.

This is an exchange he recorded up at the top of the Gulf of Oman between Indian and Pakistani warships on a collision course at night earlier this week.

Oh dear. I hope they are cooperating up there on manoeuvres.

Blasphemy laws are the foundation of an authoritarian state

Pakistan is a Muslim country and when they introduced blasphemy laws they said they were created to protect people’s religious beliefs but the laws resulted in public death sentences. Naive Canada is being led down the same garden path by a leader known more for his boyish good looks than his common sense. He has introduced motions against “Islamophobia” that are not legally binding but Muslim extremists are already agitating for them to become laws.

A resolution, M-103, seeking to condemn so-called “Islamophobia,” was introduced a few weeks ago in the peaceful country of Canada by Liberal Party MP Iqra Khalid in the House of Commons, sparking a controversy.

A similar motion, labelled M-37, was later tabled in the Ontario provincial legislature by MPP Nathalie Des Rosiers on February 23, 2017, and was passed by the provincial parliament.

M-37, like its predecessor, demanded that lawmakers condemn “all forms of Islamophobia” and reaffirm “support for government efforts, through the Anti-Racism Directorate, to address and prevent systemic racism across government policy, programs and services”…

There are, of course, no comparable motions against “Judeophobia” or “Christianophobia”.

Can’t remember the snowflakes complaining about this outrage in Saudi Arabia

I doubt there will be a UN Resolution over this appalling crime in Saudi Arabia.

Two transgender Pakistanis were reportedly packed into sacks and thrashed to death with sticks by police in Saudi Arabia.

The pair from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistan, were arrested in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for cross-dressing in public.

It is a punishable offence in the kingdom for a man to imitate a woman and officers arrested 35 people in a raid on a guest house.

Police recovered women’s clothing and jewellery and took those arrested into custody.    Read more »

 “I would like to do what Abraham Lincoln did…

I would like to do it in Pakistan.” 

-Iqbal Masih

The finest carpets in South Asia are woven by children because their tiny fingers can tie small, tight knots, and because they are paid just a few rupees. In Pakistan, a 12-year-old boy who protested against child labour was murdered.

Iqbal Masih (b. 1983 – April 16, 1995) was a Pakistani boy cast into bondage at age four because of his family’s inability to repay a debt, but through extraordinary courage and perseverance became an international symbol for the dignity of children and a martyr for justice—all by the tender age of twelve.

Iqbal first had to work an entire year as an apprentice with no pay. After that he was “paid” about 20 cents US per day. (This is in quotes because he didn’t receive the money. It was subtracted by the rug-maker, his employer, from what he owed.) However, his employer also added to what he owed the cost of his food and the tools he used to do his work. If Iqbal made mistakes, he was fined, and this, as well as interest, was added to the loan balance.

Iqbal Masih, received The World’s Children’s Honorary Award 2000 posthumously, for his struggle for the rights of debt slave children. Iqbal became a debt slave at an early age, for the owner of a carpet factory who then sold him on.

Iqbal was around 5 or 6 when he started working in the carpet factory. He worked from early morning until evening and was often treated badly. When his mother Anayat needs money for an operation, she took out a loan from a carpet factory owner. The loan, or ‘peshgi’, was in Iqbal’s name. That means that Iqbal owes Ghullah the 5000 rupees (100 US dollars) that his mother’s operation cost. Now Iqbal was a debt slave and the factory owner was in charge of his life.

Five years later, Iqbal was liberated from debt slavery. He started attending the Bonded Labour Liberation Front (BLLF) school. Iqbal talked to his friends who worked at carpet factories and spoke at meetings. He gave many carpet workers children the courage to leave their owners. The owners threatened Iqbal who, after receiving an award in the USA, was murdered on 16 April 1995.

Today, Iqbal is a symbol for the fight against harmful child labour and slavery all over the world.

“Feminist Hero” murdered by her brothers in Pakistan

A belief system that calls the murder of an unarmed woman an “honour killing” is a belief system that has no honour.  A legal system that allows murderers to escape justice if a family member forgives them, also has no honour. The latest woman murdered in the Islamic country of Pakistan described herself as a modern-day feminist.

“As women we must stand up for ourselves. As women, we must stand up for each other,” she told her 758,000 followers on Facebook, days before her death.

There is clearly no place for feminism in a society with a misogynistic legal system and misogynistic beliefs. Fauzia Azeem, like many Muslim women before her, has learned this the hard way – sadly. I wonder when Western feminists will finally get it? Islam is incompatible with feminism. The Muslim women in the West who claim to be feminists while wearing their hijabs, only have the freedom to say those things because they live in the relative safety of the West. It isn’t Islam that gives them feminist freedom, it is Western civilization.

She had to call her Ahmadi best friend an infidel to get a Pakistani passport

This is a post written by a Muslim woman who is best friends with a Muslim from the Ahmadiyya sect. The Islamic country of Pakistan does not recognise the Ahmadiyya as true Muslims so she was forced to make a choice.

If you are a conscientious , or if you don’t live under a rock, it is hard to ever forget or ignore the kind of infuriating discrimination and shameful persecution that members of the Ahmadiyya community suffer in our country.

You console yourself by thinking, “at least I personally don’t discriminate or persecute”.

And, if you’re outspoken, you think, “I won’t and don’t ever let it happen in front of me”.

But then, there is a point in time when you are forced by the lottery of birth, and the Constitution of Pakistan, to become party to the state-sponsored discrimination of Ahmadis.

This is the time when you go to perform a simple act of citizenship: get or renew a passport.

The last time I got a passport back home, I was able to duck the question: you know the one right at the end where you have to sign to attest to the accuracy of all information on your application form — and that Ahmadis are infidels.

There should be no compulsion in religion, but wait – what about Pakistan?

Islamic Pakistan:

  • Pakistan’s persecution of Christians escalates
  • Government makes Islamic study compulsory in all schools and colleges
  • Kidnapping, forced marriages and forced religious conversions of Christians
  • Blasphemy charges and violent assaults on Christians and their churches
  • British Pakistani Christian Association reports grave abuses of Christian communities.

Jewish Israel:

  • Religious tolerance
  • Compulsory military training for all Israeli citizens over the age of 18 who are Jewish, Druze or Circassian; other Arab citizens of Israel are not conscripted. Other exceptions are made on religious, physical or psychological grounds.

Pakistan was formed to give Muslims their own country  but, unlike Israel, they show no tolerance for other religions. Even compulsory military training in Israel doesn’t apply to everyone. In Pakistan, on the other hand, there is forced religious conversion to Islam and compulsory study of Islam in all schools and colleges. Clearly, the religion of peace as practised in Pakistan is not a tolerant religion and does not follow Islam’s own precept that there should be no compulsion in religion. The regular kidnapping, rape and forced marriage and conversion to Islam of young Christian girls is a horrific but common practice in Pakistan. They also have modern-day slavery, known as bonded labour in Pakistan, despite a 1992 law being passed against it.  Also practised in Pakistan is the payment of a Jizya tax (Islamic protection money), which is a payment demanded from non-Muslims living inside an Islamic State.

“The government of Pakistan has announced plans to force Islam on young people by making Quranic study compulsory for all school and college students, which is contrary to the country’s constitution and the Islamic precept that there should be no compulsion in religion. This is the latest escalation of the country’s bias against Christians, other minority faiths and non-believers,” said Peter Tatchell, Director of the human rights organisation, the Peter Tatchell Foundation.

#TryBeatingMeLightly

“Beat me with your intelligence, if you may. Beat me with your wit. Beat me with your smile. Beat me with your kindness. But if you dare to beat me even with a feather, I’d really beat the shit out of you. With love,” says Sadiya Azhar. PHOTO: FANHAD RAJPER

In a world where modern day feminists seem more focussed on made up issues like microaggressions it is refreshing to see a legitimate feminist battle being fought.The women’s rights campaign was started by Pakistani photographer Fanhad Rajper, in response to a bill drafted in Pakistan that says that a husband can “lightly beat” his wife if needed. The bill was proposed by the Council of Islamic Ideology which is a constitutional body of clerics and scholars that advises the government. Part of Fanhad Rajper’s campaign is a social media campaign with the hashtag #TryBeatingMeLightly.

Some of the tweets are hilarious:

The Genocide of the Hindus, a story you haven’t heard about

screenshot-whaleoil.co.nz

screenshot-whaleoil.co.nz

I know very little about Pakistan. I recently learned during my visit to New Zealand’s largest mosque that many Ahmadiyya Muslims have been killed there and their worldly goods stolen without repercussions but other than that I knew nothing about the country.

Pakistan was carved out of India to create a Muslim country. In 1971, Muslims murdered 2.4 million Hindus and raped 200,000 Hindu women but in the West very few of us know about this attempted genocide.So why is it that we are so ignorant of these historical facts?

…The Israeli’s and Hindus are the largest victims of perpetual Islamic invasions and violence lasting for more than 1,000 years. Muhammad Ali Jinna, a member of the Indian National Congress and later of the All-India Muslim League (a Khilafat movement that also germinated the Palestine conflict), demanded a two-state partition, creating the Lahore Resolution, which formed the separate creation of Pakistan.

The only reason the refugee quota is back on the agenda is because Helen wants the top job

Helen Clark wants the top job at the UN…and I want her to get it too…so she doesn’t ever come home.

But it explains the full-court press by the left-wing and their enablers in the Media party for an increase in the refugee quota.

Clark will need the credit of NZ being seen to be doing something.

As Europe embarks on its first major, combined attempt to combat the migrant crisis, New Zealand has been urged to take more refugees.

Hundreds of asylum seekers have been deported from Greece overnight, sent back to Turkey as part of a deal that aims to ease mass migration to Europe.

It is Europe’s much-lauded solution to a migrant crisis the likes of which the world has never seen — refugees deemed illegal, deported at dawn and sent back to Turkey.

Anticipating trouble and violence, one guard was deployed for each of the 202 migrants.    Read more »
