Is it obligatory to kill non-Muslims who disparage or insult Prophet Muhammad (saws)? Are some of the Hanafis of Pakistan right when they proclaim that Christians be subjected to the death penalty for insults against the Prophet by ‘ijma (scholarly consensus)? The application of Islamic law is often the basis of confusion and the negative connotations that fuels some of the opposition to “Sharia Law” in the West.
The Lamppost Education Initiative is pleased to present this unique work from Ismail Royer with an introduction by Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali. Mr. Royer takes a comprehensive and critical look at the application of hadd punishments in Pakistani Blasphemy Laws that have been the source of much controversy.
