Punishment For Blasphemy

Q:

As you know that some extremists killed those people who were drawing caricatures of Muhammad PBUH.

So, what is the original punishment prescribed for those who do blasphemy?

A:

The matter of blasphemy has to be dealt with extra care due to its delicate nature. Normally, it comes form ignorant and illiterate people who need to be educated. So instead of counter attack or any radical approach, it has to be dealt with a proper strategy. 

The Muslims have the option to raise their concerns through media and publications. 

In Islamic countries, they have specific rulings for such matters and they do execute as per the recommendations of their judiciary system.
