The supreme judges: Violence and killings okay (understandable) when incensed due to someone saying something critical / offensive about religion during debate etc.

The law must dispense equal (impartial) justice (including the equal / same right to freedom and protection) irrespective of religion, unlike Haqiqat Rai who, according to Wikipedia,

"... was born into a (Hindu) Khatri family of Sialkot (Punjab, now in Pakistan); his father was Baghmal. Some of his Muslim classmates had ridiculed Hindu Gods to which a fifteen-year old Haqiqat retorted by insulting Fatimah — this was reported to the Maulvi (Muslim cleric) as an insult of Islam.

"A case was accordingly filed before the qazi (Muslim judge), who asked him to choose converting to Islam or be put to death. Despite persuasions, Haqiqat refused and was beheaded in Lahore during Zakariya Khan's governorship (circa 1730)."
