Shaan Taseer is a Pakistani Muslim from a prominent family. On Christmas, he sent a message in which he criticized Pakistan’s infamous “blasphemy law” that is used to harass and persecute Christians as well as wish a Merry Christmas. In response, Muslims are now saying that he committed “blasphemy” and “apostasy” and needs to be executed:
On the Christmas Day, Shaan sent a greeting out to fellow countrymen especially blasphemy accused Aasia Bibi.
In the video, shared by Christian Times on social networking website Facebook, Shaan had criticised the misuse of blasphemy laws in Pakistan and expressed his solidarity with blasphemy accused Aasia Bibi and Nabeel Masih, another Christian boy accused of blasphemy.
Soon after the video went viral, Islampura police station received an application from its SHO Nasir Hameed and subsequently booked Shaan under Section 295-A of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) without naming him in the report.
Meanwhile, Sunni Tehreek also issued a fatwa against Shaan for allegedly committing blasphemy as well as apostasy.
According to the SHO, he received a video message in a USB wherein a man was wishing his viewers Merry Christmas and requesting fellow countrymen to pray for minority members being exploited by, what he called, the “inhumane blasphemy law”. (source)
Notice how nothing is offensive in this message. This should tell you something clearly, that merely the mention of anything Christian is enough to send them into a murderous rage.
