Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law and Non-Muslims

Title: Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law and Non-Muslims

Author: Ismail Royer

About: This monograph explores the situation of blasphemy laws and its impact on non-Muslims from the perspective of Islamic law. While Pakistan’s blasphemy law and its punishments purport to be based on consensus of Islamic scholars, the reality is that this has not been a fixed consensus opinion. From both an Islamic law and a policy perspective the relevant question to be considered is whether enforcing the blasphemy law on non-Muslims promotes the common good.
