Insulting Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is now punishable in Europe. If anyone utters anything bad about Prophet Muhammad PBUH then he is going to jail!
The Integrity Foundation for Humanitarian and Human Rights (Hayat Haq) has articulated its backing for the verdict of the European Court of Human Rights, which measured that insulting Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) does not come under the agenda of freedom of speech.
The Integrity Foundation told in a declaration that “the European Court’s verdict strengthens the liberty and rights of spiritual belief, one of the pillars of liberty in self-governing societies ruled by law”.
On Thursday, the European Court of Human Rights governed that “insulting the Prophet Muhammad – PBUH – does not come under the freedom of speech, and reflected that the conviction of an Austrian law court for a woman blamed of insulting the Holy Prophet does not disrupt the right to freedom of speech, nor Chapter X of the European Charter of Human Rights”.
The Integrity Foundation clarified that the verdict of the European Court comes in the setting of reassuring the guard of and admiration for the religious emotional state of Muslims and roles chiefly to promote civic peace.
The Foundation illustrated that the European Court “has vacant the difference between the right to freedom of speech and what is careful a violation of this right and the misuse of spiritual feelings of people and communities”.
The judgment of the European Court of Human Rights came in the backing of a legal reigning issued in Austria in 2009 in contradiction of an Austrian woman who the local courts fined €480 ($548), in adding to lawsuit charges, for the insulting of Prophet Muhammad.
