| Indonesia: Muslims scream “Allahu akbar” as Christian gets four years prison for “insulting Islam”

Jihad Watch : “Gulo, who is Christian, told authorities that he made the post
because he was upset that his own religion was criticized online.” But doubtless none of those who insulted Christianity were
prosecuted. Indonesia’s “electronic information and transactions law,
which makes it a crime to spread “hatred or animosity” against an
individual or group based on their race or religion,” only goes one way.
The West, which is well on the way to adopting similar laws, should
take note. But it won’t.
“Indonesian Christian jailed for Facebook post ‘insulting’ Islam,” AFP, July 25, 2018:
MEDAN, Indonesia: An Indonesian Christian has been
sentenced to four years in prison for a Facebook post that likened the
prophet Muhammad to a pig in the latest conviction under a controversial
hate-speech law. Dozens of Islamic hardliners cheered and shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God
is Great) as the court in Sumatra ruled that Martinus Gulo was hostile
toward Muslims in his post, which also said Mohammed sanctioned
The Medan District court on Tuesday ordered the 21-year-old
university student to pay a fine of one billion rupiah ($70,000) or
spend an additional six months in jail. “Finding the defendant guilty of misusing information by offending
believers through his Facebook account, I sentence him to four years,”
said presiding judge Saidin Bagariang. Gulo was convicted under Indonesia’s electronic information and
transactions law, which makes it a crime to spread “hatred or animosity”
against an individual or group based on their race or religion….
He was arrested in March after the militant Islamic Defenders Front reported his online post to police. Gulo, who is Christian, told authorities that he made the post
because he was upset that his own religion was criticized online….
They want to do the same shit in Malaysia, which is the "Racial and Religious Hatred Act" and they are very big landmines, like in Indonesia I believe it will only go one way. Look at the many insults in Malaysia, cowhead, holy communion, desecration of temples, calling other faiths as Kaffirs the list goes on and on...........
