Man gets death for blasphemy after video trial

Daily Times reported An additional district and sessions judge on Wednesday sentenced a blasphemy accused, Younis Masih, to death after a video jail trial. The court also fined him Rs 100,000.
If he does not pay the fine are you going to kill him anyway?
... The lawyer of the accused said that Christians had arranged a spiritual gathering at Chungi Ammarsidhu in September 9, 2005, at which a neighbour, Abdul Aziz, also a complainant in the case, had objected and demanded that they perform Islamic rituals instead of Christian rites. The argument turned hot during which, the complainant alleged that the accused had used the derogatory remarks.
I would probably be upset too if someone interrupted my Christian spiratual gatering and demanded we perform Islamic rituals.
