Twitter in Pakistan has started blowing up with #ArrestMarviSirmed_295C, asking for authorities to arrest Marvi Sirmed for violation of Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).
Section 295-C specifically pertains to use of derogatory remarks in respect of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and other prophets. This is a crime punishable by death. However, there must be a trial presided over my a Muslim judge.
The reason people are asking to arrest Marvi Sirmed is because of a satirical tweet she made that was considered derogatory in nature towards Hazrat Isa (AS).
Marvi Sirmed has been trying to justify her tweet saying that it was meant to shine light on the forces that violate all norms of decency, consitution and law by disappearances, murder and torture.
However, netizens are having none of it and this time they’re truly mad at Marvi for mentioning Hazrat Isa (AS) in a satirical way to make a point, calling it unacceptable and an insult.
This is the reaction of Twitter asking authorities to arrest Marvi Sirmed using the hashtag #ArrestMarviSirmed_295C.
