Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article presents the origins of Pakistani Blasphemy Law, rejecting the call for a general "protection of religions". In matters where religious views are involved, only hate speech should be punished by law. Other more strict provisions would end up endangering freedom of expression.
