Yeah, that’s enough for a healthy jail term, if not worse. Remember that even though this time it is happening in Bangladesh, this is part of the agenda for the West: compel it through intimidation (and canny appropriation of civil rights language) to adopt Sharia norms for speech and blasphemy. And that in turn is part of the larger jihadist agenda, to impose Sharia everywhere it can.
“Bangladesh authorities ban cartoon insulting Islam, arrest cartoonist,” from The Associated Press (thanks to Twostellas):
DHAKA, Bangladesh: Bangladeshi authorities Tuesday arrested a cartoonist after drawings that Muslims said insulted their religion were published in a national newspaper, police and the government said.
A Home Ministry statement said Arifur Rahman’s sketches “” titled “Name” “” that came out Monday in a weekly supplement of the Prothom Alo “” “hurt the religious sentiments of the people.”
Police detectives picked up Rahman from his house in the capital, Dhaka, after the home ministry ordered his arrest, Janey Alam, a police officer at Tejgaon police station said.
Rahman was yet to be formally charged, Alam said, adding that he was arrested under a stringent law that allows detention without any specific charges.
Bangladesh, a Muslim-majority nation, has no specific blasphemy laws. But offenders can be prosecuted for hurting religious or public sentiments….
Islamic leaders also demanded the Bangali daily Prothom Alo be shut down for printing the “highly objectionable” cartoons and that its editor and published be arrested.
“This is a grievous offense, this is dangerous,” said Obaidul Huq, head cleric of the National Baitul Mukarram Mosque.
Bangladesh has in the past banned publications for insulting Islam or Prophet Muhammad.
Not “Islamic Prophet Muhammad.” Just “Prophet Muhammad.” Imagine AP referring to “the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God.”
