Totally disgusting to see Europe’s Western civilizational values crushed in such a demonstrable way…
UKIP Leader Slams ‘Blasphemy Law by the Back Door’ as Euro Court Upholds Conviction for Disparaging Mohammed
UKIP leader Gerard Batten MEP has slammed the European Court of Human Rights for upholding an Austrian woman’s conviction for disparaging Mohammed, Prophet of Islam, ruling they had the right to restrict her free speech.
The woman, named as E.S. in the European court’s judgement, had suggested the Prophet Mohammed was a paedophile due to his relationship with his wife Aisha, who was married to the religious leader aged six and consummated her marriage to him aged nine, according to most — although not all — Islamic religious writings.
The European court agreed with judgement of the Austrian courts that Muslims would find the woman’s statements “wrong and offensive, even if Muhammad had married a six-year-old and had intercourse with her when she had been nine”, and ruled that they “carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the rights of others to have their religious feelings protected, and to have religious peace preserved in Austrian society.”
