This article doesn’t specify what his “anti-Muslim views” were, and strongly implies that the accusation was simply a response to his accusations against the school’s financial director. That illustrates the problem with blasphemy laws that we have seen again and again in Pakistan: they can be and are used to victimize people against whom the accuser has a grudge, or from whom the accuser wishes to steal. Nor does it say to where he was deported. I can’t imagine any country in today’s thoroughly cowed and compromised world today accepting someone expressing “anti-Muslim views”; maybe he was deported to Venus (the Moon and Mars would have rejected him, of course).

According to the website RFI, Hafid Adnani, who was head of the Lycee Bonaparte, was jailed in September shortly after accusing the school’s financial director lying on her CV.
Shortly afterwards, the woman took legal action against Adnani, accusing him of expressing anti-Muslim views, which is a crime in Qatar.
The French foreign affairs ministry reportedly called the deporting of Adnani, who has left his family behind in the country, a “compromise solution”. The financial director is said to have since resigned.

A head teacher at the Lycee Voltaire, Jean-Pierre Brosse, lost his job after Qatar’s public prosecutor complained about a curriculum which included teachings on the history of wine production and featured images of naked women in a science text book.…
