When one caller asked what the punishment was for anyone showing disrespect to the Prophet Muhammad, Nizami answered that "there is no disagreement about this".
"There is absolutely no doubt about it that the punishment for the person who shows disrespect for the Prophet is death," he said.
Nizami also argued that the actions of Mumtaz Qadri were justified on the grounds
