Foreign Office rejects US report on religious freedom in Pak

Insulting the Koran or the Prophet Muhammad is regarded as blasphemy and punishable by death in both Pakistan and Afghanistan.<--Then why is THIS A LAW?
FREEDOM means you can think, say, speak, as you please.
GOD, any GOD you believe in is the only true judge, men don't have a right to kill someone for burning a book or not believing as the gov. tells them to. Religion is a CHOICE, choices represent freedom.
"All citizens of Pakistan irrespective of their religious beliefs enjoy complete freedom of expression and there is absolutely no discrimination." <---Then why was a man killed recently for destroying his own Koran?
I read this in YOUR OWN Pakistani newspapers, if it's not true then why do you print it?
