It is a commonly held view that Islamic teachings demand strict punishments to those who commit blasphemy against God, His prophets, and His books. A careful reading of the Quran reveals that the commonly held view is inconsistent with the Quran. The popular view on punishment for committing blasphemy is based on some historical incidents which when viewed in the light of the Quranic guidance reveal a completely different picture.
