Podcast 18 - Blasphemy & Secularism In Pakistan

I'm back from Skepticon and I had so much fun! I will describe this fun in detail - I hope - in future episodes or even on this blog. For now though, let's talk about blasphemy in Pakistan, shall we?

By which I am referring to My Secret Atheist Podcast, episode the eighteenth. If episodes were years of age and if podcasts had mouths and brains, MSAP would be able to take a nice drink now! (In Quebec, that is.)

Honneybadger is based in Pakistan and she writes all about secularism and other worthy causes on her Twitter and blog.

Honneybadger is an environmental researcher/ economist, humanist, science nerd, techno geek and blogger based in Karachi, Pakistan. We’ll discuss the draconian blasphemy laws in the country - instituted by the English during British rule - which have been maintained and extended by Muslim governments in this Islamic republic. Honneybadger will also tell us a little about censorship, the situation for secular groups, atheists and even religious minorities in Pakistan and, sadly, how things have disintegrated over the past 30 years. However, with  the internet, there is some hope for the future.
