(1) Punishing a criminal or a guilty is the duty of a government not individuals like we and you. In India, though we do not have an Islamic government, but we should try our level best to get such a perpetrator punished according to the Indian Constitution.


 


(2) Under an Islamic country, the culprit of blasphemy is to be killed.
