Twitter Now Informing Western Critics of Islam If They Violate Sharia Law

Published

In another shocking act of censorship and tyranny displayed by big tech social media companies, two ardent critics of Islam on Twitter received notices from the social media company informing them they violated Pakistani law.

Both Imam Tawhidi, a Muslim scholar from Australia and Ensaf Haidar, a Canadian human rights activist and wife of Raif Badawi, a Saudi writer who has been imprisoned and tortured in Saudi Arabia for his satirical blogs, received notifications from Twitter informing them of their “violations” of Pakistani blasphemy laws.

According to Tawhidi, the tweet that was in violation of Pakistani law was one in which he called for a jihadi mosque to be investigated, while Haidar was flagged for asking people to retweet if they were against the niqab, the oppressive full body garb women are required to wear in many Muslim countries where Sharia is the law of the land.

In August of 2018, Pakistan’s Islamabad High Court said it would block Twitter unless the American social media company complied with Pakistani Sharia law, and the government’s request to block “objectionable content”.

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) Chairman Talha Mehmood said,

“Twitter was not as popular in Pakistan as Facebook, and so they had little to lose if Twitter was blocked. However, the platform would lose business if it was shut down in the country. The court is determined to teach Twitter a lesson — they will lose business.”

The Pakistani government has made many efforts to control social media and enforce Sharia in the digital square. Facebook has been banned in the country twice, once in 2008, and again in 2010.

In September 2012,  PTA blocked YouTube throughout the entire country for two years until YouTube also agreed to block content that violated Sharia.

The Islamabad High Court has “taken notice of the increase in objectionable content posted on social media websites”, and as a result, Twitter, an American company, is now serving as an enforcer of Sharia law by sending notices to users around the world who post content that critiques or “insults” Islam.

Neither Tawhidi or Haidar live in Pakistan. Tawhidi lives in Australia, and Haidar lives in Canada.

Pakistan, one of the most extreme Muslim countries in the world, has very strict blasphemy laws. According to the Pakistani law, anyone convicted of insulting the Prophet Muhammad can be sentenced to death, and anyone guilty of insulting Islam can be sent to jail for 10 years.

Pakistan’s blasphemy laws have been at the center of global discussion in the last month as they relate to the case of Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian who was convicted of blasphemy in 2010 and sentenced to death, simply because she drank water from a cup that allegedly belonged to a Muslim.

In October 2018, she was acquitted by the Pakistani Supreme Court, which prompted a string of violent uprisings throughout the country. Bibi has since gone into hiding due to threats from violent lynch mobs who have threatened to kill her and are calling on her to be hanged.

According to Bibi, she was often denied food in jail because she is a Christian. “They would say, you disgraced our religion,” she said.

Because the threats against her life are so severe, Bibi does not venture outside to visit her family, as she fears placing them in harms way.

Nearly 1,472 people have been charged with blasphemy in Pakistan between 1987 and 2016, according to Centre for Social Justice.

An estimated 70 people have been murdered since 1990 in attacks by vigilantes after being accused of blasphemy, which begs the question: why are American social media companies like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube participating in the enforcement of barbaric human rights violations by upholding Sharia law?

Twitter and Facebook aren’t the only big tech and social media companies enforcing Sharia law.

A new Android app launched last month with the focus of allowing Muslims to report individuals who commit blasphemy, or insult Islam. The app, “Smart Pakem”, which launched in Indonesia last month at the request of the Indonesian government, will allow users and government officials to uphold Sharia law and target and report people who hold “misguided” beliefs in violation of Islamic law, which forbids insults of Islam, insults against the Prophet Mohammed, or the recognition of any other religion besides Islam.

The app is available in the Google app store. Since the app’s launch in the Google app store, it has been flooded with one star reviews and criticisms by anti-Sharia and human rights advocates.

On November 29, 2018, investigative journalist Laura Loomer handcuffed herself to Twitter HQ in NYC after she was banned from Twitter for criticizing Sharia law. While handcuffed, Loomer argued “Twitter, Facebook, Apple, Google, Instagram, they are essentially upholding Sharia. Silicon Valley is essentially upholding Sharia when they decide to ban me for posting facts about Islam, when they decide to ban me for posting facts about Sharia law and criticizing an anti-Jewish Muslim Congresswoman.”

Italian Nationalist Leader Matteo Salvini Could Face Up to 15 Years in Prison for Rejecting Migrants

The Italian deep state is after Salvini.

Published

on

Italian nationalist leader and former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini could face up to 15 years in prison for rejecting third-world migrants as the country’s deep state takes aim at the populist firebrand.

The Italian Senate voted 149-141 last week to remove parliamentary immunity for Salvini. This will allow the Italian deep state to charge Salvini for his decision as Interior Minister to detain third-world migrants at sea who were trying to land on Italian shores.

“If anyone thinks the are going to scare me with a politically-motivated trial, you’ve got the wrong man,” Salvini said to the Senate before the vote.

Additionally, prosecutors in the city of Palermo are accusing Salvini of overreach for not allowing 80 migrants to disembark from a trafficking boat. Salvini remains completely defiant in the face of potential charges.

“Defending Italy is not a crime. I am proud of it, I would do it again, and I will do it again,” Salvini said last week.

Political analyst Franco Pavoncello said that the charges could backfire and put Salvini back into the limelight. The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the momentum of Salvini and his League party because they have not been able to hold large rallies due to the added restrictions.

“At the moment Salvini generates little media interest. The decision to strip him of his immunity would re-open the case and could whip up media attention,” Pavoncello said to AFP.

“Those who vote to send him to trial in a bid to create political problems for him could end up giving him the limelight instead,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on how Salvini remains a political force in Italy even after he was forced out of power by his former coalition partners:

The leader of Italy’s League Party, Matteo Salvini, was recently ousted from his position as the nation’s Interior Minister after the Five Star Movement betrayed him and allied with the globalist establishment last month.

But the anti-migrant, pro-nationalist leader is down but not out. A massive rally was held in Salvini’s honor on Sunday where he vowed that he “will never give up” on his fight against European Union (EU) globalists.

Salvini told the “traitors” in the new government that he would come for his rightful spot at he helm of the nation the before long.

“Those who thought that I would be worn out and need a break, I give my word of honor, I will work even more than before,” he told the audience.

“I won’t give up because our country deserves everything. I’d rather concede seven ministry posts to traitors now, that we will win back with interest and transparency in a few months,” Salvini added.

The League estimated that 80,000 supporters rallied on behalf of their leader in Pontida, which has significance to the nationalist League Party because it was the site where medieval leaders took a legendary oath to repel a foreign emperor.

Salvini’s supporters were emboldened by the rally where their leader called for a peaceful and democratic revolution in Italy against the coup attempt that drove him from power.

“I like Salvini because he is the only one that fights the idea of a European Union, which I do not support, because I believe the European bureaucrats do not do Italy any good,” said Luca Carminati, a laborer fears his job will be lost due to massive taxation and regulation imposed by globalist bureaucrats.

“Salvini fights that idea. He is trying to give value to the Italian people again,” Carminati added.

A new coalition between the Five Star Movement and the establishment socialists of the Democratic Party rules over Italy for the time being. A recent survey published by the il Sole 24 Ore newspaper reports that 55 percent of Italians disapprove of the new coalition, while Salvini’s party remains the most popular in the country with 34 percent of support of Italians.

Similar to the cases of U.S. President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, Salvini is being persecuted by the deep state of his country for standing with his people against globalism.
