The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) prohibits any form of discrimination based on religion.
The US, for example, is not a party to the treaty.
The ICCPR does not define blasphemy as a crime.
However, the law of several African countries criminalises insulting the Prophet Muhammad.
These laws, often enforced through physical intimidation, are known as sharia, or Islamic laws.
They can be enforced by anyone in a state that has adopted them, including police, judges and prosecutors.
The law of a number of countries criminalising blasphemy is called Article 7 of the Criminal Code of Pakistan, which is a section of the penal code.
In the US, Article 7 is not mentioned in the statute of limitations.
However in the United States, the statute is the death penalty, which carries a maximum sentence of 25 years.
The death penalty has been applied in some cases to people accused of blasphemy in the US.
Pakistan is one of several countries that have laws that criminalise blasphemy.
The United States and Australia both have laws criminalising the offence of “aggravated defamation” of the Prophet, and the death sentence is applied to those convicted of it.
In many countries the punishment of “blasphemy” is a lesser penalty, although in some countries, it is death by stoning.
Other countries including Indonesia, Malaysia, Morocco and Saudi Arabia have laws against blasphemy, but these are not specifically criminalised.
In other cases, such as the death sentences for those convicted for blasphemy in Saudi Arabia, the death is imposed on a “special cause”.
There is no specific provision for the death of blasphemers in Saudi law.
This is different from Pakistan where the death punishment is a capital punishment and the law does not specify a “general cause” for the punishment.
Some of the most prominent cases of blasphemy prosecuted under Saudi law are those of Anwar Awan, who was sentenced to death in 2003 for “blasting the prophet”, and of the cleric Abul Kalam Azad, who died in jail in 2005 after being found guilty of blasphemy.
Under Sharia law, blasphemy is considered to be a “crime” against the religion of Islam.
Blasphemy is also a crime under the Pakistani penal code, which has been in force since 2005, when the constitution was amended.
Article 4 of the criminal code states that “blatant disrespect to the sacred words of Allah” is punishable by death, as is “bluntly insulting” them.
Article 6 of the same code states: “Any person who commits the offence against the holy Quran, Sunnah and Messenger Muhammad, may be punished by imprisonment for life.”
Article 7 states: A person shall be imprisoned for life if he commits any act of contempt against the sacred things of Allah and Allah’s Messenger, and in the case of the Holy Quran, the Holy Prophet, in which he utters any obscene, lewd or disrespectful words or expressions or makes any obscene gesture or gesture or act, or makes a sound or image of any kind.
Article 8 states: Any person who utters obscene, vulgar or lewd words or actions shall be punished with imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years, or with fine not exceeding two thousand rupees (US$22) or both.
Article 9 of the Penal Code states that any person who insults the holy name of Allah or the Holy Messenger or commits any offence against his sacred things shall be killed.
Article 10 of the Punishment of Offenses Against the Sacred Things of Allah states that: Any man who commits any such act shall be sentenced to be stoned to death.
The punishment for “aggrieved persons” in Pakistan is death.
Other crimes against the Quran include blasphemous utterance, which includes any obscene or lewd utterance of any sort; blasphemic or insulting words, or actions; or insulting acts.
In Pakistan, the blasphemy laws are enforced through the state’s own media, and there are no independent courts to enforce them.
The blasphemy laws also affect people outside Pakistan.
In 2015, a group of activists who were arrested for filming a demonstration against the death penalties for blasphemy, and who were also held incommunicado for three years, were released in a joint agreement between the government and their lawyers.
The group included lawyers from the Pakistan Lawyers’ Association and the Islamabad Bar Association, who have argued that their arrest was arbitrary and unlawful, and that they were subjected to arbitrary detention and mistreatment.
According to the Amnesty International report, the government has not prosecuted or prosecuted any blasphemy offenders in Pakistan since the law was introduced in 2005.
The government also has not taken any steps to prevent religious and ethnic violence against religious minorities, including Christians.
Pakistan has a strong and growing Muslim population, making it one of the world’s most populous Muslim countries.
The country has a significant number of Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims.
However the government denies the existence of any major religious or ethnic violence.
The majority of Muslims in Pakistan are Sunni, and most Sunni Muslims are
