Punishment for insulting Nabi (SAW) in an Islamic country

Question ID: 34093

Assalaam Alaikum Mufti Sahab,

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?

True in the case of a female.
Most jurists state the male will be still executed even after repentance.
