Malik Mumtaz Hussain Qadri is a man beloved. For Valentine’s Day he has students rallying to give him flowers and cards, he is well beloved in Pakistan.
He murdered a man for daring to argue that nobody has the right to not be offended. He isn’t loved in spite of this, he is loved because he is a murdering coward.
Qadri is the true face of the anti-secularist movement – the idea that because you are religiously offended, you have the right to kill people.
Or alternatively kill the people who say you do not have a right to never be offended.
When we talk about secularism, to some extent we are talking about living in a society free of the cowardice of Qadri’s supporters.
You have the right to your religious beliefs – I have the right to disagree with them.
