Apart from execution, the judge ordered the state government to confiscate his two mosques in the state, and barred the media from using any of his teachings or pictures.
The judge gave him 30 days to appeal against his conviction. Before his conviction, the cleric had accused the judge of twisting his evidence and submissions upside down.
