“And when you see those who engage in making fun of Our revelations (Blasphemy), stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Satan causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers).
From the above verse, the stance of present-day Muslims goes totally against the teachings of the Quran. Whenever anyone in their judgment commits an act of ‘abuse of the Prophet in speech or in writing, they instantly demand that all those who insult the Prophet be beheaded.
This verse of the Quran makes it plain that it is not the task of the Muslims to establish “media watch” offices and hunt for anyone involved in acts of defamation of the Prophet, and then plan for their killing as in the case of what happened in Sokoto.
Muslims are advised instead to retort with reciting Durud, salutations of peace, on the Holy Prophet.
What those students did in Sokoto is an abomination of every etiquette in Islam of being courteous, patient and knowledgeable in the face of people who may hate, or are uneducated against Islam.
The Blasphemy Law is against the Quran and Sunnah, it does not serve Islam but instead drives people away from Islam when in reality a person like the Holy prophet attracted people to Islam by doing good deeds instead.
