Blasphemy Law

Here is an interesting part of conversation between me and My_Best_Friend.

ME: Do you think the killer of Salman Taseer was justified to kill him?

My_Best_Friend: Yes because Governor said the blasphemy law a black law.

ME : Is this reason enough to kill him? Even after he said that he is talking about a MAN MADE LAW not about Holy Prophet PBUH and he can never even imagine to talk against Holy Prophet.I agree with Salman Taseer that this "MAN MADE LAW" can be changed and indeed it seems to be proven to be a widely misused law.

My_Best_Friend : Don't poke your nose in the matters you don't have grip upon.May be your words make you 'Atheist (Kafir)' and you don't know,just follow what Relitious Scholars say.If you cannot help them at least don't oppose them.

ME: Yar i am a part of this society and i cannot remain silent about injustice and a crime done in the name of religion.I cannot BLINDLY FOLLOW religions scholars.Allah has given me mind to ponder upon.If i see something wrong i will raise my voice against it.I never liked ST but now he is my hero.

My_Best_Friend: You are going mad

ME: OK my best friend tell me what will you say if i come to you and claim that i am a Prophet?

My_Best_Friend: I will shoot you!!!

ME: WOW Wonderful ...wouldn't you check if i am in my senses?
if i am not drugged or intoxicated?
and who has given you the authority to shoot me?
Isn't it the authority of state?
