(salam) I like Javed Ahmad Ghamidi for his liberal and moderate thoughts. But I didn't post this thread for his publicity. I wanted to know your thoughts about his view that there's no death penalty for blasphemy in Islam. I'm speaking not openly because the matter I'm discussing, is a bit controversial and in my homeland, Pakistan, people are killed just because of doubt that they've disrespected the Prophet (pbuh) in some case. Once a youth who used to lead his people in prayers in a mosque, was killed because of the same doubt. I myself believe that Ghamidi's stance is weighty because he's based his opinion on Q. 5:32 according to which only two kinds of people can be killed i.e. murderer or insurgent. He believes that insulting the Prophet is a hideous and condemn-able crime but it's penalty is, in no way, death. (It can be fine/prison) http://www.ghamidi.net/article/Punishment%20for%20Blasphemy.pdf He explained his stance in a debate with Mufti Muneeb which is available on internet. On the other hand, the mainstream Muslims refer to three verses in order to justify Blasphemy Law (Q. 33:60 and 61; 5:33) But those three verses deal with other matters. Briefly, I wanna know what your thoughts are upon this issue. Please don't mind if you hate such discussions because I don't wanna create any problem for anyone.
(salam) What's the Shia Islamic ruling on blasphemy; on those who insult the Prophet (pbuh)? I listened to Javed Ahmad Ghamidi and he seems to be 100% accurate in his views.
