    It's quite ironic that the ''all-powerful immortal gods'' need to be protected from mere mortal humans.

    @Namith, Mangalore
    Which Shari you are referring to.
    FYI The Quran does not explicitly mention any worldly punishment for blasphemy.

    Allah Says:
    "When you hear God’s revelations disbelieved in and mocked at, do not sit with them until they enter into some other discourse; surely then you would be like them".
    (Quran 4:140)
