If Mark Stephenson had torn and thrown pages of the Bible, would he be charged? Or have the British authorities simply taken it upon themselves to prosecute violators of Sharia blasphemy laws? In light of the fact that they have charged Stephenson and banned Pamela Geller and me from entering the country, it is all the more imperative that they free Mohamed Jamal Miah and every other Muslim who is in prison in the UK immediately for doing something that would be taken for granted as acceptable behavior back home. David Cameron needs to end this Islamophobic inconsistency, get that cross off the flag, and declare Britain a fully Sharia-compliant state forthwith. It’s long overdue.
A man has been charged after pages were allegedly torn from the Koran and thrown during a football match.
Police said the incident happened on 7 December at a game between Birmingham City and Middlesbrough at St Andrews.
Mark Stephenson, 25, from Napoleon Drive, Bicton Heath, Shrewsbury, has been charged with causing racial or religiously-aggravated harassment.
