Whoever Blasphemes a Vaishnava will fall down to hell!

In the Skanda purana, Markandeya speaks to Bhagiratha as follows:

“My dear king, if one derides an exalted devotee, he loses the results of his pious activities, his opulence, his reputation and his sons. Vaishnavas are all great souls, whoever blasphemes them falls down to the hell known as Maha Raurava. He is also accompanied by his forefathers. Whoever kills or blasphemes a vaishnava, whoever is envious of a vaishnava or angry with him and whoever does not offer obeisances, or feel joy upon seeing a vaishnava, certainly falls into a hellish condition.”
