    As a kid when I saw homeless people living on the streets or begging for money I always used to wonder why poor people even existed in the first place when they could just attempt to rob a bank or something and get free housing and food in jail

    The Prophet (saww) himself told Ali b. Abi Talib that he and the Imams from his children will be able to separate the believers from the criminals on the Day of Judgement. The Prophet himself says the Ali will be the divider of those who enter heaven and hell. These aren't small words and neither have they been said for any Abu Tom, Abu Richard, or Abu Harry. If you believe the Shi'as at the time "only saw him as their leader and not as a divinely appointed authority" then you haven't understood wilayah yourself.

    As Shi'as are being gunned down in broad daylight and their properties vandalized, the Prime Minister is cracking down on Shi'as for reciting a religious text on one of the holiest days of the month. All this while Shi'as continue to hail the government as some kind of heroic revolution against corruption and mismanagement. As economic hardship and corruption is still rampant, the governments sets its sights on Shi'as.

    The difference between someone posting 'anti-Shia things' on Facebook and that of a Shi'a zakir reciting from a religious text is that one is acting strictly out of personal vendetta against the other sect, whereas the other is simply reciting a religious text as an act of worship.

    A few weeks ago I visited Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, Turkey. There was a museum inside the palace holding different relics, including swords of the Sahabah. I strongly doubt the authenticity of these relics.
    However one thing seemed quite accurate: there wasn't a scratch or a dent on 'Umar al-Khattab's sword.

    The law doesn't work for everyone. Pakistan is not just Sunni and Shi'ah, there are other religious minority communities who are often victimized by blasphemy laws (Christians, Ahmadis). That there are instances of both sides (Sunni and Shi'ah) being victimized by these laws is a poor argument for its "fairness" and "justice". Pakistan, and the Muslim world in general, needs absolute religious freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of mobility, and freedom of conscience. These are basic human rights that need to be guaranteed by the State.

    Thanks for sharing your ordeals, brother. It's extremely saddening to hear your troubles and how the law seems to be so lopsided against Shi'as in general. Last year I saw a video circulating on social media of a Pakistani man cursing Imam al-Mahdi (عليه السلام) with vulgarity, but did not hear a single report of any arrests or charges on him.
    It's an extreme shame, for a country where the army and intelligence are above the law and can do anything at all with complete impunity, that they are glorified as being some sort of honest safeguard of the country. It seems that constitution itself is deeply flawed.
    As a Sunni, why can't you accept that history is not clear-cut, and that there are alternative views of history held by various peoples? In your books the Sahaba are viewed in a positive light, whereas in our books (many of them) aren't viewed in a positive light. Would you like us to reject our own books?
    Another question: do you believe it's acceptable for Muslims who are a minority in the West to be able to recite controversial verses of the Qur'an freely? There are plenty of verses that the majority Christians would find offensive and Jews who would also find offensive. So why is it that when Sunnis are a minority in other parts of the world that they demand to be able to freely practice their religion, but when they are a majority in other countries, they do not let others freely practice?

    A brother in Karachi, Pakistan, has apparently been arrested for reciting Ziyarat al-Ashura on a TV station which was relayed live. The recitation was so outrageous to some in Pakistan that even PM Imran Khan tweeted it and mentioned how he will act harshly with anyone peddling sectarianism. Brother Taqi Jaffer is being portrayed as the offender, for sending la`nah on Mu`awiyah and Abi Sufyan (which is in the text of the Ziyarat). I only read about this on social media today.
    It's extremely disheartening to see the amount of blind support Pakistan gets from its Shi'a population even as it oppresses them. Prior to this instance, it was mainly veiled oppression. Now that a Shi'a can get arrested even for reciting a religious text it's become so much more blatantly obvious. The fact that a major portion of Imran Khan's supporters are Shi'a is even more troubling. Reminiscent of the Shi'a Ba'athists that were such staunch supporters of Saddam that they'd terrorize their own people, then lament for Imam Hussain afterwards. The main problem I find in them is their priority to serve the country over their madhhab.

    I don't agree with this new trend that is gaining traction in Pakistan. Recently, the Punjab assembly passed the Tahaffuz Bunyad-e-Islam bill, which is so ridiculous. It was introduced by Sipahe Sahabah MPP Mu'awiyah Tariq (s/o Maulana Azam Tariq), and passed almost unanimously with the full backing of PML-Q speaker of the house, Ch. Perwez Elahi. According to this absurd piece of legislation, Muslims are required to call Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم "Khatam an-Nabiyyin" whenever his name is spoken or written! From which Shari'ah have they derived such a law?
    I am totally against all blasphemy laws, having been a victim of it myself when I was recently in Pakistan (I was charged with 295-A and 298-C of the PPC, but alhamdulillah I got bail and am now back in Canada).
    While I was in Adiala Jail, housed with the blasphemy cases, there were three Shi'ah there who were all being charged with offenses of blasphemy against the Sahabah رضى الله عنهم. All three essentially were guilty of cursing Khulafa ar-Rashidin or Mu'awiyah on Facebook. The one who was charged with cursing Khulafa ar-Rashidin رضى الله عنهم on Facebook has been languishing in jail for almost five or six years (his name is Hamid Ali), his trial is still ongoing but recently was being expedited until the Covid-19 crisis hit. The other two have been there for little over a year, one of them (Shaukat) was working at a medicine dispensary for the Army, he told me his bail application was rejected by the Supreme Court. The other (Syed Ali Abbas) is a young man in his early 20s. All three are UTPs (under trial prisoners). I came after them, spent five months, and got out on bail. I was basically accused of preaching Qadianism although I am a Sunni Muslims.
    The issue is, Qadianis or Qadiani-accused (such as myself) have less severe cases in Pakistan than Shi'ah because Qadianis never curse the Sahabah رضى الله عنهم, therefore, there isn't the same kind of outrage, even though 298-C (used against Qadianis) and 298-A (used against those who blaspheme Sahabah, Ahl al-Bayt, Ummahat al-Mu'minin) carry the same penalty (three years imprisonment).
    So while I am critical of these blasphemy laws, the Shi'ah community aren't doing themselves any favors or gaining any sympathy by insisting they should be allowed to curse the Sahabah رضى الله عنهم openly in a Sunni majority country like Pakistan. It doesn't send a very good message that the Shi'ah have characterized their religion as being centered on cursing people that are venerated by the majority community.
    Recently, Hamid Raza Sultani, a Shi'i zakir, was arrested for cursing sayyidina Abi Bakr as-Siddiq رضى الله عنه, and another zakir, Asif Rizvi, was charged with the same, but he managed to flee to the UK.

    One day he checked his email and saw an email from his father asking him how he was liking his university. He responded, "I'm enjoying it here, but all of the students here get to university by train and I feel embarrassed when I get there in my Lamborghini."
     
    So the next day he gets a response from his father: "Son, $500 million has just been added to your account. Go and get yourself your own train and please stop embarrassing us."
