Jamil, a pilot who is married to Aliko Dangote’s daughter and is a millionaire businessman, took to Twitter on Friday night, May 13, to discuss the sentence for blasphemy.

He wrote: “In Islam we respect the Injil, Taura, Zabur, we were never taught to disrespect any of the book, or any of the prophets From Adam to Muhammad SAW & the Quran.

“The punishment for Blasphemy is DEATH! in most religions including Christianity.

He added: “In Islam the Sharia court handles these cases. Islam put rules & regulations to control peoples action and motives, so the wrong ones are not cheated and justice is served the right way.”
