Blasphemy Laws in Pakistan and Indonesia and Global Notes: Bassel & The Supernaturals by WBEZ’s Worldview

In Pakistani law, blasphemy can carry the death penalty. We discuss the controversial law with Saroop Ijaz of Human Rights Watch. Indonesia has its own blasphemy laws. We speak with journalist Ted Fishman about a blasphemy law that is threatening Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, the governor of Indonesia’s capital. And Chicago’s own Bassel & The Supernaturals is an nine-member group whose music combines neo-soul and funk to address issues like the war in Syria.
