The President noted that Muslims all over the world demand respect for the Holy Prophets, including Isah (Alaihissalaam, Jesus Christ) and Muhammad (SAW) but where transgressions occur, as alleged to be the case in this instance, the law does not allow anyone to take matters into their hands.

Moreover, the statement added, that religious leaders, preach that it is not for the believer to judge the actions of another person. The constituted authority must be allowed to deal with such matters when they arise.
