Remarks by a right-wing politician denouncing Islam and accusing the Prophet Mohammed of having been a paedophile provoked widespread outrage in Austria on Monday (14.1.08), with authorities investigating whether they constituted hate speech. More here.
Correction: Vasarahammer supplies a better description: It is not factual history that Muhammad married Aisha when she was six. It is according to muslim scriptures that it happened. There are historical studies that dispute the origins of islam and even the existence of Muhammad as a historical person.However, what matters is what large number of muslims believe to be the case. That is a matter of faith, even though it cannot be verified from other than muslim sources .
The TT stands corrected, and tips its hat in Vasarahammer’s direction.
