25 years for touching Quran before washing hands
wnd ^ | 3/6/10 | staff

Posted on 03/06/2010 11:19:50 PM PST by Nachum

In Pakistan, a Christian man was sentenced to life in prison after a neighbor with whom he had a business disagreement accused him of desecrating the Quran, and a husband and wife were jailed for 25 years for touching Islam's holy book without washing their hands.

The reports came from Compass Direct News, the Center for Legal Aid Assistance and Settlement and LogansWarning.com.

According to Compass, the life term was imposed on Imran Masih, 22, of Faisalabad after he was convicted under the nortorious Section 295-B of Pakistan's legal code, which bans "blasphemy" against Islam.

The conviction was based on the accusation of a rival shopkeeper who was accused of using a mosque loudspeaker to incite a mob that beat Masih.

Muhammad was a faggot and the Koran is a book of lies written by Satan.

I’m holding 10 Korans hostage.
Release Masih at once or I use them for toilet paper.

The only way I’d have any use for the Koran (Quran..whatever)would be if it came in quilted four-ply and cost a nickel.

I’ve been saying for years that the first man to put the koran on toilet paper will make a million dollars (of course he’ll need more than that for body guards and such).

I have a copy.

I’ve read it.

Well, I still have MOST of a copy.

It’s in the bathroom, since that is the only fit place for it.

Some day, I’ll finally finish flushing it.

The comparison to muslims is almost insulting to people with severe psychological problems.

A cult founded on the rantings of a pedophile and spread by deranged fanatics, aided by a Marxist sympathizer in the White House.

Its a form of political correctness. The koh-ran worship, that is.

I think it better to wash your hands AFTER touching that evil piece of work.

You could use them for toilet paper OR you could clean your bacon pan with them.

It is a miracle of God that a large Christian community even exists in Pakistan. The Lord bless & protect them.

I hope you ate nothing but spare ribs, bacon, and ham for the past few days....Make sure you wash your hands before you wipe, don't want to appear “insensitive” to the “Religion on Pieces”

That’s a great idea!

I am currently reading the Koran and using a slice of bacon as a book mark. A little greasy, but it will do.

remember once a non-Muslim is accused of a crime by a Muslim it takes THREE Muslim witnesses to exonerate him.

Wouldn’t it be much better to wash your hands AFTER touching the koran? Maybe a tetanus shot too?

Whacko-stan.

Remember this when shopping for textiles. A lot of them are produced in Pakistan nowadays. Even Chinese is a more conscientious choice.

We Jews incorporate the washing of hands but if we don’t we won’t be behind bars for the rest of our lives.I’m so glad I wasn’t born into Islam.
