While the sentiments of those who wish to use blasphemy laws in Russia, India, Ireland (and yet, let's face it - Canada) may currently be verbalized in restrained tones, a story in The Nation , sums up the sentiments of religious authorities once they are firmly entrenched:

SHABQADAR: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) provincial chief Amir Mushtaq Ahmad Khan said, "I will cut the tongue and eyes of those who want to amend the blasphemy law." He distanced himself from KP CM Pervez Khattak over his statement in the Mashal Khan murder case.

Not only must one not blaspheme, one must not even consider amendment of blasphemy laws.
