Ansar Abbasi and Jang Group help Apprehend Person spreading Blasphemous Content

In a recent news report in The News it has been reported that Ansar Abassi and the Jang Group helped apprehend a person spreading Blasphemy on the Internet. Allegedly a certain Dr. Omar Zia using a yahoo account emailed Ansar Abassi with Blasphemous material on June 29th, following it up again on the 30th of June. Ansar Abassi and the Jang Group reported the emails to FIA and after carefully stalking the person arrested a certain Mr. Murad, a father of four from Karachi.

What does intrigue me, is that Blasphemy is not covered under the Cyber Crime Ordinance [also known as Prevention of Electronic Crime Ordinance (PECO) of 2007] which was the basis on which the FIA responded to the case, after Ansar Abassi filed a report under the PECO the report was later was modified to a crime committed under the Section 5 of the FIA Act. Im not debating or justifying the blasphemy accusation but I believe that since the PECO is originally an Ordinance which was signed into effect by Pervaiz Musharraf on 31st December 2007 it has long since lapsed as it never got presented to the Parliament within the stipulated 4 months as per the Article 89 of the Constitution of Pakistan.

Secondly I believe the jurisdiction of the FIA is so loosely defined within the Cyber Crime Ordinance that, having not found the culprit not in violation of the Cyber Crime Bill they conveniently moved the charges to their own FIA Act. Im no lawyer and could be wrong in making this observation but remain open to debate on the jurisdiction of the FIA in terms of handling Cyber Crime Offense and Blasphemous content. What also intrigues me is to see Ansar Abassi and Jang group rattling away

    Dr. Sahib,

    Ironic how stupid we are.

    In actuality the blasphemy of GEO far exceeds any blasphemy by anyone else. Except we Pakistanis have our shutters down.

    We complain about cartoons etc.

    Yet GEO shows an Urdu dubbed 10 Commandement in which not only are MUSA (AS) and Harun (AS) talking in Urdu but Actually God is TALKING in URDU. Who exactly is willing to mimic the voice of Allah?

    All I can say that I am extremely disappointed, GEO TV's slogan is "Geo aur jeenay do" what they did is contrary to what they preach. Journalism is very respectable occupation, it is a service to nation, journalism respects freedom of expression and difference of opinions. But Ansar Abbasi didn't show any jouralist approach rather he acted as a coward Mullah who can't expect others to think differently. He is not a journalist he is a religious biased person who does not respect other opinion. Geo TV should be ashamed of two pathetic things they have done, by helping FIA to arrest mr. Murad and employing Ansar Abbasi.

    Well…whatever it was, whether it was under jurisdiction of FIA Cyber crime or not….I think those emails, which were sent to Ansar Abbasi should also be brought before the public; Well I don't know if those have been!!!

    And we should also know, what was the reason of sending those emails to Ansar Abbasi, after all why Mr. Murad was sending those emails to him.

    Well guyz i think blasphemy by any means is not accepted by all of us, whether it is ansar abbasi or us. who would bear any kind of blasphemous content in any form. he has done the right thing to file a complaint. As far as jurisdiction of FIA is concerned you must know it that our daily lives are being monitored every second through internet, mobile phones, banking transactions, car trackers. We think that these are easing our lives but the real purpose of all these facilities is to monitor even our dreams.

    Nice. Really really nice. Hardly the right of a government which is indulging in riba and thus has a formal declaration of war against it by Allah and his messenger (surah al bakarah) to persecute people for blasphemy. This is moronic and hippocritical beyond the imagination. he he. Unbelievable. Maan gain hai tum ko. I am sorry Pakistani government and state have NOTHING to do with islam.

    blasphemy is serious business and GEO is quite good it it. Dr. Omar Zia seems to be an aitheist. If he is the ones whos works are commonly found on some real anti islam aitheist web site, well they are quite bad, but nothing you would not expect from a non muslim (he calls himself an ex muslim). Its actually quite mild compared with some other non muslim critics of islam. Hoever, GEO is supposidly a channel run by muslims.

    Anyways its sheer hippocracy, if they care about blasphemy, then they should ban GEO, cut diplomatic relationships with Denmark. Ganging up one poor sob who does not know why islam is true is silly.

    Actually there is an ayah in the Quran,

    Those who do not judge by what Allah has revealed are indeed the Kafirun.

    To ignore the shaira is indeed blasphemy. Allah accuses the Jews and the Christains exactly for that and we are making sure we are not behind them in this regards.

    I truly fear the reckoning is close.

    LOL, Nice. Really really nice.

This is moronic and hippocritical beyond the imagination. he he. Unbelievable. Maan gain hai tum ko. I am sorry Pakistani government and state have NOTHING to do with islam, except perhaps attempts to destroy it.

    during all centuries many books are written against prophet Muhammad and Islam, but those books have no impact on spread of Islam, you know why? because Islam is religion whose holy book is under God's custody. Many people attacked prophet during his life and he never said anything back. this is sunah, so istead of putting person behind bars we should act as confident people. what kind of law is this? We know even there is no one to defend Prophet, still his sunnah is an answer to all his critics. We should all condemn this act and we should all defend freedom of expression in our country.

    this matter needs a thorugh investigation. links ,motives and possible foreign involvement and most importantly the aim of this kind of campaign.

    I feel sorry for this person. Looking mostly at Pakistani mind & culture he thinks he can understand Islam. A misguided one. I would like, if I may, to suggest him to go and read other religious books and write same hate articles against those too. He will then see the true faces of people he is working with.

    Looking at his name, I thought "ok, so this is THE technique of analysis of problems taught to doctors! Half cooked facts, without context references, believe you are better and intelligent than others".

    God/Allah an absolute eternal. Do you have any doubt in your dubious minds? no, I guess

    Mammon an absolute external. Do you have any doubt in your dubious minds? no, i guess

    If you still have a doubt in your dubious minds so then you can read my article written by myself in which i even gave "definition of Allah" and why don't we see Him.

    @Asad Hamza

    Who the hell dis Dr OZia? Is he from pakistan or abroad? read his comments how one men giving abuses to last prophet and our holy book

  • guY-sir |

    @Asad Hamza

    We shouldn't seek and watch this kind of Islam whose followers are giving up Islam rather they are Munafiqs. who sold their souls to sole.

    They are even worse than ass and their religious books like Torah and Injeel is like a bunch of books put on donkeys-backed and he's running without knowing what's the matter/wisdom in these books rather a social system, financial fastidious rules, pure politics but donkey don't know except bears the burden of the Books.its an example of Dr Zia and his commentators who abuse prophet and koran.

  • Xainab |

    This Dr. Zia seems to have lost his mind. Many referances he was giving about some events during the early period of Islam are the custom of that time.

    Even dealing with slaves is another matter in which Islam is the first religion which started working on abolshing the slavery cebturies ago, which the west practiced till the very recent history.

    Its very interesting to see what this ex Muslim aithiest site has to say about Pakistans and musharrafs favourite mslim scholar Javid Ghamdi…

    http://www.islam-watch.org/Amarkhan/Javed-Ahmad-G

    "Javed Ahmad Ghamdi learned a lot from his debate with Dr. Ali Sina. Ghamdi and Sina are doing the same job, but in different ways. Sina is cutting the stem but Ghamdi is trying to cut the branches first. Islam will die—either a slow peaceful, or a sudden, death. How we can kill Islam at a particular place will depend on how we choose to as well as on how the circumstances are. In Western countries, sudden death should is possible and be given a chance; but in Islamic countries, it is not possible. The first step for killing Islam in Islamic countries is to create an atmosphere, in which people can accept realities easily. Ghamdi's reformist program, which I wish to share with you here, may help foster such an atmosphere. I have given a brief account of Ghamdi's reformist agenda with links to access his work online in Urdu."

    I think Mr. Ghamdis efforts mirror Mr. Musharraf efforts. With mulims like these who need enemies.

    Governor Sindh, Ishrat ul ibad, Ex-judge Abdul Hameed Dogar and other *honored leaders* of our society participated in the washing of Khana-Kaaba…..

    Looks like they would have to wash the place again after these corrupt officials left the kaba.

    Can you believe that?

    Does anyone know, what happened to Murad aka Dr. Zia? Its been a while since no news about him resurfaced on our Mullah media. Lets hope he was released since that wasn't FIA's jurisdiction to apprehend "alleged" blasphemers on the complain of those who openly support Taliban and can't stop smiling when our soldiers are beheaded by psychopath Mullahs.
