A personal story! – by Dr. Shazia Nawaz

I was sitting with a white American female physician. Wonderful woman in her 40s who just adopted a child from China with cleft palate.

She is very religious. I said,” Muslims are very similar to Christians. We do believe that Mary was a virgin mother but we believe that “Jesus was only a miracle of God and not son.”

That doctor’s hands started shaking, her voice started trembling and she literally had tears in her eyes when she said with deep grief, ” Shazia that is our core belief. Our religion is based on that fact that Jesus was God and part of God was in him.”

Before that I did not really know that how strong this part of Christian faith was. I thank that God who created us all that USA does not have blasphemy laws. They let you debate. Or that day, my life would have been taken away from me.

This is what happened to that Christian woman, Aysia Bibi, mother of five children. Since birth she was told that Mohammad (P.B.U.H) [our beloved prophet and last prophet of God according to Muslim faith] is — a prophet (P.B.U.H). — She was beaten and her life was taken away from her and now she is in a jail cell. We all are going to die one day. If I see grave injustice, I would say it. Blasphemy laws can not be applied on non Muslims anyways and a Muslim scholar Javed Ghamdi sahib has said it.

It makes me very sad that a good man (Governor Punjab, Salmaan Taseer) died speaking the truth. I have never called a dead politician Shaheed before but Salman Taseer was.
