Muhammad Khan Sherani, head of Pakistan’s Council of Islamic Ideology (CII), said on 28 January that he was willing to review his country’s blasphemy law. The CII’s job is to advise whether legislation is “repugnant to Islam”. The blasphemy law, which carries a mandatory death sentence for defiling the name of Muhammad, is often abused by Muslims. However, within days Maulana Sherani had backtracked after other Islamic scholars denounced the idea that the law might be amended. Muhammad is so strongly venerated by Pakistani Muslim that it seems impossible this dangerous law can ever be changed. But pray that this will Happen, remembering that what is impossible with men is possible with men is possible with God.
