…”On Mar. 24, 2017, an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan placed three online bloggers in the custody of a security agency, so they could be investigated and interrogated on blasphemy charges, resulting from what M-103 would define as their “Islamophobic” comments on social media.

Pakistan’s anti-blasphemy laws include a maximum sentence of imprisonment for life for insulting the Qur’an….

…To express solidarity with the Pakistan Three, I have decided to commit an act of Islamophobia and wait for whatever punishment the Parliament of Canada believes is appropriate, in light of its passage of Khalid’s anti-Islamophobia motion.

Here is my question to MP Khalid, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Ahmed Hussen, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

Am I indulging in “Islamophobia” if I publicly choose to dissociate myself from the following two verses of the Qur’an?

Here is the first:

Qur’an (5:33): “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.”
