Mohammad: You are ignorant of quran hadith and sharia. I am a muslim living in Pakistan. We have sharia laws here in accordance with quran and sunna. In our country apostacy and blasphemy is punishable with death.

Ishaq:551 The Messenger ordered Miqyas' assassination because he became a renegade by rejecting Islam."

Bukhari Volume 9, Book 83, Number 17:
