Punishment for insulting the Prophet (SAW)

Question ID: 34682

Assalaam Alaikum Mufti Sahab,

I am from India.
I have read that if someone insults the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), the judge in an Islamic Country will arrange for the apostate to be counselled and given the opportunity to repent. If the apostate repents and renounces his/her statements, his/her repentance will be accepted.
If the apostate does not repent, the apostate will be executed in the case of a male and imprisoned in the case of a female as a hadd for adopting Kufr. Is this true?

Yes. Some are of the opinion, he will still be executed but the female will be put in prison.
