Another blasphemy murder in Pakistan

Pakistani government minister Shahbaz Bhatti was today murdered. Reason: He said criticism of Islam should be allowed.

In January, provincial governor Salman Taseer was murdered for the same reason: he believed it should be ok to criticize Islam. For this, his own bodyguard shot him with 26 bullets. People went to the streets to celebrate the murder.

Pakistan has a law that forbids blasphemy and in practice allows any citizen to kill a blasphemer. No evidence or court hearing needed, just go ahead and kill anyone who says bad things about your religion.
