Slightly differing from other mullahs and scholars, Taqi Usmani sahib says Hanfi Jurisprudence has not prescribed a death penalty for blasphemy if the perpetrator is a non-muslim. Ironically, Hanfi is the predominant school of thought in Pakistan.

He also acts a bit rational than others in that he considers the evidence in Asia,s case insufficient.

He also maneuvers his opinion on murder of Salman Taseer at the hands of Qadri, condemning the act slightly yet anticipating his forgiveness in the court of Allah.
