The statements were made on Noor TV, an Islamic channel that broadcasts in the UK and internationally, the communications regulator said.
Ofcom said: "On 17 December 2012, Ofcom found the channel in breach of the Broadcasting Code for broadcasting statements that it was acceptable, or even the duty of a Muslim, to murder any person thought to have shown disrespect to the Prophet Mohammed."
It added: "Due to the very serious nature of these breaches Ofcom has imposed a fine of £85,000."
