Majority of blasphemy cases are false accusations and based on extortion, religiously motivated revenge and personal vendetta. To counter this injustice, the people who file these false FIR's should be very severely punished according to laws without fear of anyone who can bring people in the street with fabricated furious allegations to destroy property, extort financially and destroy the lives of wrongly alleged innocent people. No person from any community commit blasphemy unless mentally sick and that needs psychological or mental treatment not jails.
