Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan reacted to the Udaipur beheading case and said, “Children are being taught in madarasas that punishment for blasphemy is beheading”.
He said it is being taught as the law of God and there is a need to examine these teachings. He added, “We worry when symptoms come but refuse to notice the deeper disease”.
