The sad thing is that although blasphemy is legally an unforgiveable sin in Pakistan for which death is the only penalty but the highest clerics in Islam, both ancient and modern, have clearly stated that it is forgivable if you repent. Both for Muslims and non Muslims. Especially for non if they do it rarely and out of ignorance. The Pakistani newspapers have shown the evidence for this to the man arranged for the law in 1991 and he admits the error made in interpretation. However he refuses to help get the law changed.
Many in Pakistan realise that Pakistan is going to the dogs but cannot defeat the mob mentality.
