Things are really getting out of hand in the U.K. The government’s intolerance toward “hate-speech” has reached new extremes lately. We are used to reading about native Brits having their lives ruined for speaking up about the invasion of their country. We’ve heard hundreds of stories about Christians running afoul of hate-speech laws for objecting to Muslim cultural idiosyncrasies.
But this takes the cake: A Muslim teen has been arrested for comments he made on facebook:
According to Sky News, Azhar Ahmed of Ravensthorpe (19) posted comments on his profile page, criticizing the level of attention British soldiers who died in a bomb blast received, compared to that received by Afghan civilians killed in the war. The actual comment can be viewed here. Please note this comment is controversial and might offend. He was arrested on Friday and charged over the weekend. A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “He didn’t make his point very well and that is why he has landed himself in bother.” Ahmed has been charged with a racially aggravated public order offence and will appear at Dewsbury Magistrates Court on 20 March 2011.
