Defame the Prophets Wife, Go to Jail

A nineteen year old in Bahrain has been sentenced to two years in jail for defacing one of the Prophet Muhammad's wives.


Bahrain's attorney general says a 19-year-old man has been sentenced to two-years in jail for defaming one of the Prophet Muhammad's wives.

Abdulrahman al-Sayyed announced the court decision the state-run Bahrain News Agency late Sunday. He said the court heard how the unnamed man "posted filthy and depraved comments" on a website that slandered Muhammad's wife Aisha.
