Court rules on naked Muhammad poster
A victory for freedom of speech:
A Swedish politician facing charges for producing a poster depicting the Muslim prophet Muhammad naked together with his nine-year-old wife was found not guilty by a jury in Malmö on Wednesday.A 44 year bride-groom age difference is no big deal – Hugh Hefner is 60 years older than fiance Crystal Harris. Such spring-summer couplings are totally normal. Really.
Carl P Herslow, leader of the Skåne Party (Skånepartiet), a small right-wing populist regional party, is charged with agitation against an ethnic group (hets mot folkgrupp).
The poster included the text: 'He is 53 and she is nine. Is this the kind of wedding we want to see in Skåne?'
