In other words, they will be just a little more sharia compliant.

Nouakchott – Showing repentance will no longer prevent the death penalty from being applied for blasphemy and apostasy, Mauritania said on Friday, as the conservative Muslim nation hardens up its religious laws.
The decision follows the release on November 9 of a blogger previously condemned to death for criticising religious justification for discrimination in Mauritanian society.
A new bill will “harden up expected sentences for blasphemers,” the government of the west African nation said in a statement released by the official AMI news agency.
“Every Muslim, man or woman, who mocks or insults Mohammed (peace be upon him), his angels, books… is liable to face the death penalty, without being asked to repent. They will incur the death penalty even if they repent,” Justice Minister Brahim Ould Daddah said, according to the statement.
The following video report describes mass demonstrations in Mauritania demanding stricter punishments for blasphemy — that is, they want their legal system to impose an exact application of the Shariah, based on the Koran and the sunna.
A bit more on Mauritania. Notice how even though these videos clearly show how slavery is a deeply embedded aspect of Mauritanian life, no mention of Islam, which is 100% the justification and basis of slavery in Mauritania, is mentioned.
