A guy in Indonesia claimed that a verse in quran is used for lying.
You can check the case here in bbc-news
In any case,
Is this blasphemy?
In general, is it considered blasphemy to claim that quran is used for lying.
Some muslim commentator go the extra mile saying that the scripture cannot be used for lying. Is this true?
(See here in Indonesian)
A bit detail:
The guy claims people are using Al Maidah 51 to lie. Most people interpret that as lying in general. Politicians are not, in general, honest. However the court interpret that to mean that the interpretation of Al Maidah 51 is a lie. It follows that a string of articles in Indonesia shows that Quranic verses cannot be used for lying.

The conclusion is no.
There is a bit of controversy on Ahok's case.
Ahok isn't attacking those who interpret quran or quran itself. He attacks those farther removed from it. Basically Ahok, and many Indonesians reasonably suspect that a lot of corrupt politicians are losing money because of Ahok. Those politicians that lost bribe because of Ahok's electronic money surveillance want to get their rent seeking biz back. They uses religions to get reelected. My impression is that is what Ahok means by people being lied to. It's not even about religion at all. People are just using religions to get elected so they can steal money.
However, those who wants Ahok fails, claim, that Ahok claims that the verse it self is a lie and or the ulama that interpret the verse was lying.
To simplify this question, if it turns out Ahok means the second interpretation, is it blasphemy.
