            Part 2 of 2: Wide Angle Zoom host Faraz Syed takes on Pakistan's controversial Blasphemy Law in a two-part discussion involving experts on Islam, Dr. Khalid Siddiquie and Dr, Ikram Jehangiri. At the centre of the discussion is the recent sentencing to death by a Pakistani court of a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, for allegedly blaspheming. Faraz questions the premise of that sentence and establishes quite emphatically through the two experts that there is no capital punishment for such an offence in the Holy Quran. The experts also question the 'double standards' being practiced by Pakistanis supporting the court's writ.
