Jamil Abubakar, the son of a former Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has asserted that the penalty for blasphemy is death in many religions.
Deborah Samuel, a Christian student in Sokoto State, was stoned to death and burnt by some of her Muslim classmates for likely blasphemy.
This has led to rage and also elicited mixed responses.
Jamil, a pilot who is wedded to billionaire businessman, Aliko Dangote’s daughter, took to Twitter on Friday night, May 13, to write about the penalty for blasphemy
He wrote: “In Islam we respect the Injil, Taura, Zabur, we were never taught to treat with contempt any of the book, or any of the prophets From Adam to Muhammad SAW & the Quran.
“The penalty for Blasphemy is DEATH! in most religions including Christianity.
Respect Peoples religion it’s simple!”
He added: “In Islam the Sharia court addresses these cases. Islam put rules & regulations to control peoples action and motives, so the wrong ones are not cheated and justice is served the right way.”
