3. ‘Holy warrior’ selfies: Pakistan teen feted for killing US blasphemy suspect

PESHAWAR/ ISLAMABAD:

On July 29, a 15-year-old Faisal Khan pulled out a pistol and fired multiple shots into 57-year-old Tahir Naseem, inside a courtroom in Peshawar at a bail hearing.

Naseem, a US citizen, died on the spot, onlookers spattered with his blood. He was accused of committing blasphemy, a capital crime in Pakistan.

His killing grabbed global headlines, put a fresh spotlight on Pakistan’s blasphemy laws and drew criticism from abroad, even as many in the country praised the shooter. The United States and human rights groups decried the killing and urged changes to Pakistan’s blasphemy statutes, among the harshest in the world.

Closer to home, Khan is a hero.

He beamed for selfies with lawyers and police days after he was brought to court following his arrest. Thousands hailed him in the streets as a “holy warrior.”

Kalayci also said that a ban on alcohol should be considered “if discipline in restaurants does not improve”.

5. Pretty much the ONLY thing we know for certain about Covid 19, is not the number of cases or deaths, what treatments work or don’t work, the benefits of masks or lock downs. No. The one thing we absolutely know to be true for a fact, is that pretty much all political authority lies to us about anything connected to it.
