imran-firasat-family-childrenWe have recently reported that the Spanish government seemed resolved to extradite Imran Firasat to Indonesia, and a hearing to that effort was to be held on 16 October 2014.

We are belatedly informed that the judges gave the verdict to the hearing on 28 October, giving a green signal to the Government's request to extradite him.

It should be mentioned that Indonesia is seeking Imran Firasat's extradition through Interpol on a murder accusation. A few years ago, a Madrid court held a hearing to the extradition request and the Indonesian authorities were invited to present their evidence to the murder charge. Despite repeated calls, the Indonesian authorities never showed up to present their evidence and the judge eventually rejected the extradition request.

imran-firasatSpain does not have death penalty. And recently, dozens of Spaniards blockaded the house of an Ebola-infected nurse for saving her Ebola-infected dog after a court had ordered the dog be euthanized. When the security forces eventually broke through the blockade and took away the poor dog, the protesters chanted, “Assassin! Assassin!” with many bursting into tears.

Yet a Spanish court today may arrive at a verdict, which would mean death penalty for Imran Firasat, a Pakistani ex-Muslim and convert to Christianity.

His offence? Criticism of Islam, which is a constitutionally protected human rights in Spain.

/imran-firasatIt appears that the Spanish authority has set the stage for condemning Imran Firasat to death for his criticism of Islam by extraditing him to Indonesia.

We reported in July 2014 that after the Spanish Supreme Court upheld the Spanish government's decision to revoke Imran Firasat's refugee status for his criticism of Islam, he tried to seek refuge in Norway, a country that hosts the murderous Al-Qaeda Jihadi leader Mullah Krekar from Iraq. But the Norway government refused to consider his asylum request and hurriedly deported him back to Spain.

Those, who are aware of the newly-released movie, “Aisha and Muhammad”, by producer Imran Firasat should already know that Youtube stood in constant and firm vigilance with an iron-whip in hand to strike down any attempt to promote the movie on its website.

Youtube deactivated the first link of the movie within one-and-a-half hours of activation. The second link was deactivated faster that the first. That's how youtube dealt with Imran Firasat's movie.

What baflles us most is the fact that youtube fought hard a legal battle to keep the rather shoddily made video, “The Innocence of Muslims”, after one of it actresses, following death-threat from Muslims, initiated a legal proceeding against Youtube after it rejected her request to remove the video on the ground of defending freedom of expression. The protracted legal battle ran on for nearly a year, and in the final court verdict, youtube lost the case a few months ago, and regretfully deleted the video, terming it a bad day for freedom of expression.

Nigeria has been the worst victim of Islamic terrorism for many years now with its Christian population suffering horrible death and devastations at the hands of Boko Haram Islamic Jihadis, the Nigerian version of Al-Qaeda. Thousands of innocent Christians – from school students to Church attendees to common villagers – have been killed or burned alive by the Boko Haram Jihadis in the past few years. A staggering 1,500 people were killed in the first 3 months of 2014 in Boko Haram violence. Sufferings of the totally innocent Christians at hands Boko Haram Jihadis have been such that the Christians of Nigeria—as I think—have only one way out of it, which is: Partition of the country like the 1947 India-Pakistan, but with a complete separation of the Muslim and Christian populations.

As of latest, a new dimension has been added to the sufferings of Nigerian Christians at hands of Boko Haram Jihadis. On 14 April 2014, Boko Haram militants attacked a secondary school and abducted 276 young girls. In another incident, 8 girls were abducted from a village on May 6, while 12 persons were hacked to death in a separate incident on May 5.

The latest in this abduction saga is the release of an hour-long video by Boko Haram commander Abubakar Shekau, in which he claims responsibility for the abductions and threatens to continue the same. About the abducted girls, he said:

“I abducted your girls... They are slaves and I will sell them because I have the market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell them. He commands me to sell. I will sell women. I will sell.”

He also said that he abducted the girls because they dared to accept sinful western education defying the dictates of Islam and the Sharia.

He added: “the abducted Christian girls have been converted to Islam” and that “they will remain as slave with us.
