I don’t suppose these petitions do much good, but they may make us all feel a little better about ourselves. Muhammad Asghar is a lunatic living in Pakistan, thus scoring about as low as it’s possible to get on life’s first two throws of the dice. He is a paranoid schizophrenic and recently proclaimed himself to be the messiah, the Prophet Mohammed. Really bad move, Mo. He has subsequently been convicted of blasphemy in that ghastly, benighted country and thus now faces the death sentence. Such is the response of the Religion of Peace © to mental illness.
Mo was apparently born in Edinburgh, which makes him a British citizen, I should guess. You can add your name to the rest here.
