Egypt’s court sentences Muslim preacher to jail over blasphemy

17th Jun 2013

CAIRO, (Xinhua): An Egyptian misdemeanor court sentenced on Sunday a Muslim preacher and his son to jail over charges of insulting religion and tearing up the Bible, state-run MENA news agency reported.

The ultra-conservative Salafist cleric Ahmed Abdullah, known as Abu Islam, was given an 11-year prison sentence, while his son was sentenced 8 years in jail.

The court decided to fine both defendants with a total of 5,000 Egyptian pounds (around 715 U.S. dollars).

Abu Islam has been convicted for tearing up the Bible and disturbing social peace during a protest in September last year outside the U.S. embassy in Cairo against an anti-Islam film produced in the United States.
