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.”
Michelle Malkin has also spoken out about Silicon Valley Sharia.

“ALLAHU AKBAR”: ANOTHER Muslim Terrorist Attack Shakes France, Three Dead in Stabbing Attack
Three people have died and several others were wounded following yet another Islamic terrorist attack in France, this time in the city of Nice.
Per the BBC, French authorities said an elderly victim “was virtually beheaded.” The two other deceased victims were a man and a woman.
Police shot and detained the terrorist. There aren’t too many details about him as of this writing, though it is alleged that he was a 21-year-old male of Tunisian extraction and that he was acting alone.
BREAKING: At least 3 people were killed by a stabbing attack at a church in Nice, France. One victim, a woman, was beheaded.
– Mayor described it as a terrorist attack
– Several others wounded
– Attacker was shot by police and is in custody
— AJ+ (@ajplus) October 29, 2020
Nevertheless, French authorities are not taking any chances. Thousands of troops are said to have been deployed to protect churches and schools, according to the BBC.
Big League Politics reported on the last Islamic terrorist attack in France, when an 18-year-old beheaded a teacher who showed cartoon depictions of Muhammad in his classroom:
A teenager shot dead by French police is said to have beheaded a teacher near Paris while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar.’
Officers were trying to arrest the terrorist when they shot him. He died from his injuries some time later, according to the police. His full identity has not yet been established, but he is ostensibly an 18-year-old with ties to the teacher’s school.
The terrorist allegedly hails from Russia and might be of Chechen origin per the Daily Mail:
As for the victim, he taught middle school history and had shown cartoon depictions of the Prophet Muhammad in class.
And thus diversity and multiculturalism have struck again.
An interesting backdrop to these terrorist attacks is the recent row between French president Emmanuel Macron and Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Hindu describes it thus:
Relations between France and Turkey, two NATO members, hit a new low this month after Recep Tayyip Erdogan launched a personal attack on his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron following the latter’s call for reforming Islam. Last week, France recalled its Ambassador from Turkey, for the first time, and Ankara called for a boycott of French goods. Several other Muslim countries, including Pakistan, voiced protests against Mr. Macron.
What triggered the latest tensions?
Turkey and France have clashed over a number of geopolitical issues in recent years. The trigger for the latest clash was the French government’s support for Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine whose office was attacked by al-Qaeda-linked jihadists in January 2015 over its publication of a set of caricatures of Prophet Mohammed, to republish the cartoons. Ankara, under Mr. Erdogan’s Islamist Justice and Development Party, has projected itself as a defender of (selective) Muslims causes worldwide, and had slammed Mr. Macron earlier over his push to “reform” Islam in France.
This is also something to watch as Macron works to suppress radical Islamist attitudes in a country that is approximately 10 percent Muslim, almost all of it due to immigration over the past few decades.
