2,100 lashes, 7 years Jail to the Indian Arrested over Haram-Temple Photo

Indian was arrested for posting an offensive picture

An Indian man has been recently arrested for posting offensive pictures of the Holy Kaaba. He has been given a punishment of 2,100 lashes, 7 years Jail, and SR 30,000 fine for his blasphemous act. The pictures consist of the Kaaba being replaced by a Hindu temple.

These disgraceful pictures were posted on the individual’s Facebook account. The accused man has alleged that he did not originally post the picture, but instead, someone else had posted it and he merely liked the photo, which in turn made it visible to all the people on his friend’s list.

Respect every religion in the world

It is also a common courtesy of all human beings to not insult or defame any religiously important places or individuals.

I believe that Muslims like me should hold the higher ground and not let such acts anger us or disturb us, but instead, we should be more compassionate towards the ill-informed or towards the ignorant, and stoop down to their level at least.

Latest Update about the Case

The Criminal Court of Jeddah has just now quashed a seven-year jail term and an additional 2100 lashes as punishment which had been given to an Indian man who had been convicted of blasphemy.

This new move of leniency by the Criminal Court of Jeddah comes since the Indian prisoner converted to Islam, during his time in jail. Recommended: Indian Citizen who shared “Haram Temple” photo embraced Islam
