Pakistan, which has only recently been re-elected a member of the UN Human Rights Council, is seeking to impose International blasphemy law to criminalize criticism or ridicule of Islam and its Prophet Muhammad.
In a prerecorded speech to the U.N. General Assembly Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has urged the United Nations to universally outlaw what he called "rising Islamophobia".
Christians in Pakistan have become a heavily persecuted minority, and have fallen victim to multiple Islamist attacks designed to intimidate them and force them out the country, which remains overwhelmingly Muslim.
In Pakistan, which is well known for its barbaric blasphemy laws, Christians are often falsely accused of blasphemy. Christians often walk on eggshells to avoid such charges, since once they’re levied, no Christians are safe — even the families of the accused.
Pakistan's controversial blasphemy law carries an automatic death penalty for people who are accused of insulting the Prophet Muhammad, Islam, the Quran or certain holy people.
Shockingly, Pakistan has been elected to be a member of the UN Human Rights Council. The UN is a threat to world peace.
