A son of Hector Aleem sent an update message through Facebook. I am transmitting his message to you so that you can more fully comprehend why lovers of life and liberty must never accept Islamic blasphemy laws in any time or place, in any form, to any degree no matter how they are disguised. I have added bold font emphasis to the message, it is otherwise unedited.
It is obvious to me that Hector Aleem has almost certainly joined the blessed martyrs waiting under the heavenly altar for divine justice. Murder: its what Islam is; what Muslims do. Simon does not want to confront that reality. I sympathize with him, but I have no hope of a good ending.
Ignore the cloaking prose of the legislation on Pakistan's books. Look through it to Shari'ah and witness the execrable reality of Islam, which causes reasonable men to curse it.
Chapter O8.0: Apostasy from Islam (Ridda)
(O: Leaving Islam is the ugliest form of unbelief (kufr) and the worst. It may come about through sarcasm, as when someone is told, ``Trim your nails, it is sunna,'' and he replies, ``I would not do it even if it were,'' as opposed to when some circumstance exists which exonerates him of having committed apostasy, such as when his tongue runs away with him, or when he is quoting someone, or says it out of fear.)
When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.
In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.
If he is a freeman, no one besides the caliph or his representative may kill him. If someone else kills him, the killer is disciplined (def: o17) (O: for arrogating the caliph's prerogative and encroaching upon his rights, as this is one of his duties).
There is no indemnity for killing an apostate (O: or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die).
There is no doubt about the penalty prescribed for apostasy. Nor is there any doubt concerning its definition. The list of acts and attitudes is long, I cite here those most relevant.
-4- to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);
-5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);
-6- to be sarcastic about Allah's name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;
-7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;-15- to hold that any of Allah's messengers or prophets are liars, or to deny their being sent;
(n: `Ala' al-din' Abidin adds the following:
-16- to revile the religion of Islam;
-19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;
-20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet's message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala'iyya (y4), 423-24). )
That Islamic law applies to Muslims, how does it affect me? Take another long hard look at item 20 above. What part of that do you not comprehend: Islamic law has global applicability. Another paragraph lists the limits on conquered Christians. Yet another paragraph identifies acts which abrogate a Christian's treaty of protection, subjecting him to immediate execution. Five items are listed, one is relevant.
The agreement is also violated (A: with respect to the offender alone) if the state has stipulated that any of the following things break it, and one of the subjects does so anyway, though if the state has not stipulated that these break the agreement, then they do not; namely, if one of the subject people:-5- or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.
The OIC has pushed through resolutions condemning "defamation of Islam" every year since '05. Now they are campaigning to make those resolutions legally binding on U.N. member states. The Ad Hoc Cmte. meets again at the end of November. Very few people are aware of this threat to our lives & liberties. Only a few organizations such as Art. 19 & IHEU are publicizing it. Almost nobody is paying attention.

The linkage between Islamic genocide and Islamic scripture is direct and immediate. I have pointed that out in numerous blog posts. In Australia, Great Britain, Denmark and Finland I could be fined and imprisoned for that revelation. Thank God and the Founding Fathers, America has the First Amendment. But not for long. Soon, we shall be led dumb, like lambs to the slaughter.
I want you to do something about it. I want you to sign the International Qur'an Petition, send its url to everyone in your email address book and exhort them to sign and forward it.
It is to inform you all that Hector Aleem has been disappeared suddenly from Jail. We can’t find him anywhere. When our lawyer sent legal papers in jail to get them signed by Hector Aleem then the Jail authorities told that Hector Aleem is NOT in jail and some agencies took him somewhere. We are trying for three days to confirm that where is daddy but no one is able to tell us anything. Our lawyer has searched him in each and every Police Station of Rawalpindi/Islamabad but we couldn’t find him anywhere. Three days have passed now and we still don’t have any clue about daddy. We don’t know if he is being tortured somewhere or being kidnapped. Even Jail authorities can’t tell where he is now. They just say, “Some agencies took him”. But they don’t tell us that where he is and who took him? Please pray for him and tell your friends and family to pray for daddy. If you got your blogs then please publish it in your blogs, and if your friends got any kind of blog then please tell them to publish this news. This is not fair that daddy is not even safe inside the jail, and we don’t know where he is now.
