KARACHI: This is with reference to Nadir Hassan’s article “Changing the blasphemy debate” (September 6). I completely agree with the writer’s views on the blasphemy laws. Laws against incitement and hate speech are already there on the statutes and should be enough to convict people who insult others’ religions with malicious intent. Keeping in mind the way blasphemy laws have been misused, it is important to debate its utility in protecting people’s religious beliefs.
