I am glad to see you writing about Blasphemy laws of Pakistan and miserable treatment of Ahmadi's who helped Jinnah to come back to India and promote formation of Pakistan.
Sorry to see, your inability to honor the improvement of western democratic laws in protecting their minorities .Sadly you jabbed them too.
"The President of Pakistan and almost all of its leaders are ready to toe the line of those western nations that have a rather dim view of their state religion but are unwilling to make the necessary legal changes that treat their own minorities as outside of the realm of national discourse"
I wished you had used better role models and promoted rights of minoritites in all the countries.
I know many times language and habbits make it difficult for us to get rid of all our biases .Please try you will find all of us applauding for you.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CRITICIZE OTHERS TO MAKE THE CRITICISM OF REAL BAD ACCEPTABLE.
Blasphemy laws are shame and tragedy for Pakistan and they have hurt more muslims than anybody else.They stand in the way of fundamental freedom, freedom of conscience.
