EU Court rules insults on Islam’s prophet a crime

Nov 13, 2020, 12:02 PM

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) passed the verdict on Thursday that insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad will be a punishable offence and will not be counted under ‘freedom of expression’.

Panel of seven-judges said defaming or demeaning the Prophet goes beyond permissible limits of an objective debate and could cause prejudice in the society and will risk religious peace.
