I think the time has come for us atheists to give up on Pakistan and seek help in either securing an separate place or safe passage. The majority of Pakistanis want Islamic law in some form or another. In this environment, Pakistan is no longer a safe or desirable place for atheists and partuclalry ex-Muslims like myself.

Are there any support groups out there so we can speak with one voice?

Governor's murder is crime against Pakistani people, too

Salman Taseer

The following is a statement issued by the Communist Party of Pakistan on the day of the murder of Governor Salmaan Taseer.

The brutal murder of Mr. Salmaan Taseer, the governor of the Pakistani state of Punjab, is yet another substantial proof that the wrath of the Islamic religious fanatics endangers the lives of the common citizens of Pakistan, and leaves them far from peace.

If a governor cannot speak up with freedom on the subject of human rights, or talk about religious tolerance, then just imagine, what will be the fatality of a common citizen of Pakistan?

The Communist Party of Pakistan strongly condemns and denounces this audacious murder of the only liberal democrat and secular head of a province.

The state of anarchy in Pakistan has prevailed and reached its peak, to such a point that Islamic religious political leaders issued Sharia edicts (fatwas), sanctioning in public the murder of Gov. Taseer for his talk and condemnation of the misuse of blasphemy laws against minorities and others.

But, ironically, the government functionaries could not apprehend these instigators of barbarism, because behind this whole game are the mighty iron hands of the military establishment, which has tactfully adopted, on one hand, the promotion and husbandry of Islamic religious fanaticism as a great profitable business, and on the other hand uses Islam as the basis for Pakistan's very existence.

The left and progressive, secular, democratic forces in Pakistan have been so weakened that it is just not possible to confront these maverick forces of jihad and fanaticism.

The present government, which to a minor degree represents a liberal trend, has been paralyzed by these intransigent assassin forces of bigotry.

The right wing and religious political parties at times, upon the directives of the fostering military establishment, do create an environment of such chaos around the president, the prime minister and parliament that NO secular legislation can be adopted at all.

CPP demands the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party and other democratic parliamentary parties work diligently for the complete repeal of the notorious blasphemy law and apprehend and award due punishment to the political Islamic religious fanatic leaders for the public instigation of the murder of Taseer.

CPP is deeply shocked and extends its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family, his friends, comrades and the PPP.

Yes, moT, it's a disaster for those of us who still think we live in a more tolerant society where the radicals are just the loud minority. I've had perfectly rational, educated people coming up to me and saying he deserved it for criticizing a law about blasphemy and making a very public stand against the injustices it begets. A sad day for us all, I'm very glad at this time that I've moved away from this madness, I would not honestly feel safe airing an innocuous opinion about anything anymore.

It is my recommendation that those of us that live in close proximity should socialize more often. There is a dire need for local support groups that can help people that are skeptical or in doubt. What do you guys think?

My dear Sarang Qazi,

You have been pleased to write:
“@ Lakho Sb Welcome sir, indeed we are honored to have you here. I wish you best of luck for the journey you have embarked upon however do you think that our society is capable of rational thought and comprehending the merits of such decisions. Though a good initiative but it is way before its time for our part of the world in my opinion.”

Atheism! and “luck”! “however”! “do you think that our society is capable of rational thought and comprehending the merits of such decisions”! “a good initiative” WITH “ but”! “it is way before its time for our part of the world in my opinion”!

I have the honor to read your comment with due care and attention. I am afraid to note that such sort of atheism is hopeless atheism. I assumed that you may be pleased to find time to go to the following websites and write there the words “a good initiative” and full stop without any IF and BUT and with words free from the virus or cancer of hopelessness. I am sorry to say that my assumption was wrong.

(1) THE INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST STATE RELIGION ,
(2) THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE STATE RELIGION OF PAKISTAN &
(3) THE MOVEMENT FOR RENAMING PAKISTAN AS INDUS REPUBLIC

I have observed that your atheism has two sides; one is hopeless side and the other is hopeful side. It may be safe to say that for Pakistan your atheism is HOPELESS atheism; and beyond Pakistan it is HOPEFUL Atheism.
For example let me quote your comment:
“@ Misha: indeed you are lucky to flown somewhere that allows liberty, I myself am planning to complete my medicine and apply for job in the scandinavian region. Ive heard they are predominantly atheists and the women there are bombshells.”

As you are “planning to complete” your “medicine and apply for job in the Scandinavian region” and you have “heard they are predominantly atheists and the women there are bombshells”; so your atheism is not for Pakistan, for Pakistan it is hopeless atheism; yet, for the aim and object that you have been pleased share here your atheism is hopeful atheism.

Be that as it may, as you are still in Pakistan and have “to complete” your “medicine”; so, I urge you please find time to go to the websites and simply write there your own three words: “a good initiative” and then full stop. I am sure that you will loose nothing by doing so. Your HOPEFUL atheism will help you to leave Pakistan after completion of your “medicine” and settle “in the Scandinavian region”.

Take care.

With best wishes and profound regards.

Yours truly,

The victory of Asma Jahangir may be treated as the first step to peace, democracy and Human Rights. The fact is that peace is still Idea in Pakistan; it is not the fact of life. The same is the case with democracy and Human Rights. The Idea of peace, democracy and Human Rights would start to be the fact of life in Pakistan at the moment when our Supreme Court of Pakistan may be pleased to DECLARE that State Religion violates the Liberty OF and FROM Belief. Now, on the victory of Asma Jahangir as the President of the Supreme Court Bar Association, there is a reason to hope that she may be pleased to do some thing active, effective and meaningful in this respect by moving to the Supreme Court of Pakistan. The repeal of State Religion from the Constitution of Pakistan is must as it would be in the interest of peace, democracy and Human Rights in Pakistan and South Asia. This is the time to realize that State Religion of Pakistan is the big hurdle on the High Way of Peace, Democracy and Human Rights.

I wouldn't discuss my religious beliefs with anyone except very, very close friends back in Pakistan. To be honest, my family knows of my distaste for religious functions and gathering but I have yet to "come out of the closet" outright but I probably wouldn't since it would cause a great deal of sadness and resentment and be of little to no benefit to me anyway.
