One very powerful mullah, a hellishly determined Dutch politician, and a just-sworn-in Prime Minister still learning the ropes – put them together, and you have a riot on the streets of Pakistan as well as a potential diplomatic fall-out with Netherland. At this point in the story, mostly everyone has declared their stance. Conservative religious party Tehreek-e-Labbaik (TLP), which was heading the protests probably had the most drastic outlook of them all:
The fuss started when Geert Wilders, the leader of a major Dutch political party, Party for Freedom, announced he would be directing a cartoon contest (with Prophet Muhammad as its subject) to be held in November. This isn’t the first time this particular politician has targeted Muslims’ sensitivities. He must have known what kind of reaction his project would incite, seeing as Muslims hold the Prophet in the highest possible esteem – but he went ahead with it anyway, perhaps because he knew what would happen.
The fact is, it isn’t surprising at all to see that thousands of Pakistanis have already held protest campaigns in Lahore and as of yesterday, had taken them to Islamabad as well. To the contrary, it would be shocking if no action had been taken. Here in Pakistan, the sin of blasphemy transcends all others in severity – whether it be murder, rape, or human rights violations:
Naturally, the issue is also being considered a priority by the government. A trending concern amongst the Pakistani public and a point of interest internationally as well is this:
Khan’s blatant condemnation of the contest, the way he has implored foreign parties to understand the depth of feeling in Pakistan relating to this issue, and the stated goal to involve the OIC and UN, seemed to be indications of an attempt to exercise impactful yet careful diplomacy. However, it was here that the tug of war between the government and the highly charged religious sect began.
How long would have Imran Khan allowed for this to continue is a question that although irrelevant now, is still an important one. Wilders announced that he is cancelling the contest. Everyone is lauding Khan for taking a stand for Muslims at world-over. Can we really take the lead in the Muslim world like this when under the same teachings of Islam, minorities suffer back home? Moreover, is Khan capable of asserting himself amidst Khadim Rizvi’s dominating leadership? Particularly when the latter has the ability to bring Pakistan to a standstill? Furthermore, just how much of a hard line will he be able to take in the future, considering the decades-old, undefeated prevalence of this self-appointed, TLP-led blasphemy court in Pakistan?

I am the proprietor of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently planning to grow my wholesale side of business. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance ! I considered that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd stores. I was really hoping if someone could suggest a dependable web-site where I can purchase CBD Shops Business Mailing List I am currently considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best selection and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
