Indian journalist in jail for “hurting the religious feelings of Muslims”

First the story:

The editor and publisher of a top English-language Indian daily have been arrested on charges of “hurting the religious feelings” of Muslims.

The Statesman’s editor Ravindra Kumar and publisher Anand Sinha were detained in Calcutta after complaints.

Muslims said they were upset with the Statesman for reproducing an article from the UK’s Independent daily in its 5 February edition.

The article was entitled: “Why should I respect these oppressive religions?”

It concerns the erosion of the right to criticise all religions.

In it, the author, Johann Hari, writes: “I don’t respect the idea that we should follow a ‘Prophet’ who at the age of 53 had sex with a nine-year old girl, and ordered the murder of whole villages of Jews because they wouldn’t follow him.”

Mr Kumar and Mr Sinha appeared in court on Wednesday and were granted bail.


Angry Muslims have been demonstrating in front of the offices of the Statesman since its republication of the article.

Police have broken up the demonstrations using baton charges several times this week.

Some Muslims close to the Jamiat-e-Ulema e Hind (The Organisation of Indian Scholars, a leading Islamic group in India) later filed a complaint with police alleging that the publication had “outraged their religious feelings”, which is an offence under Section 295 A of the Indian Penal Code.

Mr Kumar has said he has already issued a public apology for reproducing the article.

“Not anticipating the reaction to the story was an error of judgement and we have regretted that, ” Mr Kumar told the BBC in an interview.

Now the rant. Fuck them. He is right after all. In the middle east practisioners of Islam regularly rape little boys and girls. Thursday is known as “Manlove Thursday” for a reason. They call for the extermination of the infidels, that is all of us that are not Islamo-facists BTW, and they do it by sawing your head off. So you want me to be sympathetic to their feelings? Not a fucking chance baby. I want to go back just so I can re-start the crusades.


Now not all Muslims need to be wiped out, just those who wont help exterminate the Islamo-facists. These wahabists or what ever they are called are a plauge on the world. Obama wants to negotiate and intitiate a dialog with them. So what happens when they get the word? The number 2 man in AQ say he wont talk to the “house negro”. Thats just not nice! He is a wonderful human being with the worlds best interests at heart and thinks you are special people too. But it just goes to show that even when someone comes to them and is willing to hand them our security on a silver platter they just want to kill you.


Hold on America, they will hit us again and we will be force fed more of this tolerance bullshit just like the slaves in the rest of the world.
