Blasphemy under Islam is the prohibition of the truth. There must be enforced silence about Moe and Islam in order to keep tens of millions under the boot. Every truthful reference to Muhammad or Islam is met with a death penalty. That's how powerful the truth is, and how afraid Islamic supremacists and sharia enforcers are of it.
There is that, and also the Islamic pattern to use sharia laws as retribution against innocent people.
And why, in news reports, is Muhammad referred to as "the prophet Muhammad"? Is every reporter a Muslim? He ain't my prophet.
Bangladesh arrest warrant over ‘blasphemous’ book By AFPPublished: June 5, 2012
Court issues warrant for writer of novel allegedly containing insulting remarks against Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).
DHAKA: A Bangladeshi court has issued an arrest warrant for the writer of a 2003 novel that allegedly contains insulting remarks against the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), a lawyer said Tuesday.
The court in Dhaka issued the order in response to a petition from a Muslim activist accusing author Salam Azad of hurting religious sentiment in his banned book “Bhanga Math” (“Broken Temple”).
“We told the court that the book contained slanderous remarks against the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and Islam. The judge accepted the petition and issued a warrant of arrest,” the petitioner’s lawyer Ekhlas Uddin told AFP.
Dhaka police confirmed the warrant.
Azad told AFP the case was part of a smear campaign against him launched by a senior official from the ruling Awami League party.
“I became his target after I protested his grabbing of Hindu property. He has already filed a case against me,” he said.
Azad, 48, said the book, published in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata, was banned for blasphemy by the Bangladeshi government in 2004.
The book is alleged to contain insulting remarks about the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and the Quran.
In May, Bangladesh banned a novel by popular writer Humayun Ahmed for allegedly distorting how the nation’s first president and his family were murdered in 1975.
