Ahmadi and Christian Socio-Political Responses to Pakistan's Blasphemy Laws

A Comparison, Contrast and Critique with Special Reference to the Christian Church in Pakistan

by Qaiser Julius

A thorough work that cuts through the noise around the blasphemy laws in Pakistan and their misuse. The author analyzes the issue from the colonial era through the current opportunistic usage of the law to settle scores.

After establishing a well-balanced review of the historical context, the author states candidly that no-one is safe from these laws, least of all Muslims. However, the two minority communities -- Christian and Ahmadis -- have evolved different responses to the situation.
