Where is Obama humanitarian interventionism? Surely this is a human rights crisis. Free speech, freedom of conscience and individual rights. This is a violation of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
- Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Bangladesh indicts 4 for postings on Islam The Associated Press, Sep. 8, 2013
DHAKA, Bangladesh -- A court in Bangladesh's capital indicted four bloggers Sunday for their allegedly inflammatory writings about Islam and its Prophet Muhammad.
Metropolitan Sessions Court Judge Zahurul Haque said he had accepted the charges filed by police in two separate cases, the first to be tried under Bangladesh's recently amended Information and Communication Technology Act.
The opening of the trial was set for Nov. 6. If convicted, the bloggers, who pleaded not guilty, could face up to 14 years in jail.
The accused — Moshiur Rahman Biplob, Subrata Odhikary Shuvo, Russel Parvez and Asif Mohiuddin — are currently free on bail after spending up to three months in jail.
