Pence urges Pakistan to release professor accused of blasphemy
[DAWN] Days ahead of Prime Minister Imran Khan
... aka The Great Khan, who ain't the sharpest bulb on the national tree...
’s July 21-24 visit to Washington, US Vice President Mike Pence urged Islamabad to free Junaid Hafeez, a university teacher arrested on blasphemy
...the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence to a deity, or sacred objects, or toward something considered sacred or inviolable. Some religions consider it to be a crime. In Pakistain you can commit blasphemy by looking cross-eyed at a Koran...
charges.

At a religious freedom summit in Washington on Thursday, Mr Pence highlighted the detention of religious dissidents in Eritrea
...is run by the People's Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ), with about the amounts of democracy and justice you'd expect from a party with that name. National elections have been periodically scheduled and cancelled; none have ever been held in the country. The president, Isaias Afewerki, has been in office since independence in 1993 and will probably die there of old age...
, Mauritania, Pakistain and Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
. He also asked Saudi authorities to free Raif Badawi, a blogger jugged
Drop the gat, Rocky, or you're a dead 'un!
for 10 years in 2014 for allegedly insulting religious sentiments.

"In Pakistain, Professor Junaid Hafeez remains in solitary confinement on unsubstantiated charges of blasphemy," Mr Pence said in his address to the summit meeting attended by hundreds of delegates from across the globe. "And in Saudi Arabia, blogger Raif Badawi is still in prison for the alleged crime of "criticising Islam through electronic means."

Mr Pence said that "all four of these men have stood in defence of religious liberty, in the exercise of their faith, despite unimaginable pressure".

Assuring the prisoners that the American people stand with them, the US vice president said: "Today, the United States of America calls upon the governments of Eritrea, Mauritania, Pakistain, and Saudi Arabia to respect the rights of conscience of these men, and let these men go."

Mr Pence also criticised Myanmar, China, Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
and Venezuela for their alleged continued violation of human rights
...which are usually entirely different from personal liberty...
"We’re also standing up for the persecuted Rohingya people in Burma," he said. "We cannot ignore the rise of murderous Moslem Buddhism against Moslem and Christian minorities that’s taken place."
