European Court of Human Rights Adopts Sharia Law, Rules Defaming Muhammed Not Free Expression

Such defamation could stir up prejudice and risk religious peace, says European Court of Human Rights – Anadolu Agency

Source: Defaming Prophet Muhammed not free expression: ECHR

Defaming the Prophet Muhammed “goes beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate” and “could stir up prejudice and put at risk religious peace” and thus exceeds the permissible limits of freedom of expression, ruled the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) on Thursday, upholding a lower court decision.

The decision by a seven-judge panel came after an Austrian national identified as Mrs. S. held two seminars in 2009, entitled “Basic Information on Islam,” in which she defamed the Prophet Muhammad’s marriage.

According to a statement released by the court on Thursday, the Vienna Regional Criminal Court found that these statements implied that Muhammad had pedophilic tendencies, and in February 2011 convicted Mrs. S. for disparaging religious doctrines.

She was fined €480 (aprox. $547) and the costs of the proceedings.

“Mrs. S. appealed but the Vienna Court of Appeal upheld the decision in December 2011, confirming, in essence, the lower court’s findings. A request for the renewal of the proceedings was dismissed by the Supreme Court on 11 December 2013,” it said.

“Relying on Article 10 (freedom of expression), Mrs. S. complained that the domestic courts failed to address the substance of the impugned statements in the light of her right to freedom of expression.”

On today’s ruling, the ECHR said it “found in particular that the domestic courts comprehensively assessed the wider context of the applicant’s statements and carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected, and served the legitimate aim of preserving religious peace in Austria.”

The court held “that by considering the impugned statements as going beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate and classifying them as an abusive attack on the Prophet of Islam, which could stir up prejudice and put at risk religious peace, the domestic courts put forward relevant and sufficient reasons.”

The statement also added that there had been no violation of Article 10 of the European Convention of Human Rights, covering freedom of expression.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) recently ruled that freedom of speech must be balanced with “protecting the religious feelings” of others. Hence, Europeans are no longer allowed to call Muhammad offensive names like “pedophile,” even though he had sex with a prepubescent nine-year-old girl named Aisha.

  1. The inane and pusillanimous Europeans are doing EXACTLY what they did when Hitler was coming to power. Hence, the EU is already on the path to self-destruction.
    • PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN HERE!

  2. Islamism is HATE based political doctrine, not religion.
    If I’m wrong, leave the sites of Muslim outreach / medical / housing groups to assist people in
    distress, of ANY other religious leaning.
    Does Sharia support women, other than ownership, and tolerate LGBTQ…whatever other… alphabet?
    Or, do they throw “different” sexual orientation off of roof tops ?
    Stone only female adulterers ? Condone rape and killing of teen-aged girls for applying lipstick ?
    A religion of HATE….!

  3. The EU is pathetic with the likes of Merkel, Marcon, and the rest in charge would anyone expect any different? Not one of them has the fortitude of Trump and europe will fall again to the second Nazi regime! In case anyone missed it the mooslems fought side by side with the nazi’s in the middleeast and North Africa in WWII! And the Europeans were rolled over while trying to appease just like now! And there are the Kennedy wimps that are allowing it to happen here! It never fails that the chicken shit weasels will capitulate to avoid confrontation even if it means surrendering our country!

  4. This is truly apalling and repugnant. Europe has now officially renounced it’s own Renaissance, Reformation and Enlightenment, in favor of Sharia Law!!! It has abandoned the doctrine of Freedom of Speech in favor of “protecting religious feelings”, a rule that was NEVER dreamt of over centuries of Christianity! Still worse is the preference of individual feelings over The Truth!!!

  5. Like lulu Mahalo said – if the EU does the same for those slandering other religions, we’ll talk about refraining from discussing mohammad’s pedophile problem. Until then…he’s fair game, and this evil “religion”.

  6. Please share , far and wide to inform the World , that this Court thinks it is ok for an adult msn to have sex with a pre pubescent girl aged 9 years old., and that anyone who challenges this decision will under ECHR law will be commiting a crime , and charged and fined accordingly , as was an Austrian Woman recently.

  7. Sharia-adherent Muslims are only doing what is required of them by their ideology. As much as we all abhor that barbaric death cult posing as a religion, which has no business even existing in modern Western society, the blame lies with the gutless politicians who allow Islam to spread like the cancer that it is. Europe is in for its 2nd wave of Nazism facilitated by Marxist revolutionaries and globalists. The public needs to wake up and vote these threats to civilization out of office.

    • I’m totally against this development. God,pls don’t allow this to take place.In fact,Christians all over the world should sit up to intense prayer that God will put a permanent halt to unwanted creeping sharia & let those in government fight with their last blood to make it impossible.

  8. Sharia laws goes directly against the principles stated in The Constitution and as such has no place in this country that was and still is based on Christian principals that the founding Fathers set forth during the writing of The Constitution

  9. Europe is killing itself.
    Angela Merkel hasn’t given an explanation for her actions in flooding Europe with economic migrants.

  10. I live in American freedom speech will always be mine damn Muhammad a pedophile child molesting asshole to hell with Islam and all them faget Muslims try to come and push that law in America and try to run your religion over here and you’ll find your head cut off

  11. They have already “let the camel’s nose inside the tent,” and now are letting the head and front legs in! Self-destructive all the way!

  12. This does not sound correct. Mohammad was a paedophile. He married a 6 year old child. He is up for criticism in the same manner that the Islamic criticise Christ. The man was a sick nomad who incited atrocities for War.

  13. Oh really? So when they disown family, commit honor killings, and kill Christians, will they be fined, perhaps jailed? When they speak against Christ, will they be forced to consider the feelings of Christians? When they get you all to declare Christianity a threat to Islam, will you bend to their will? Whose feelings take precedence then,?

  14. When the next attrocity is perpetrated by Muslim extremists, in the name of Allah !, then let’s see how the court of human rights reacts ?

    Sharia law has no right to exist in western communities or countries.

  15. You can not say anything about musslem people and they way the act, marrying young girls, curing off people’s heads, stoning women, and the fear they put out in the world because FACEBOOK blocks what people say, where is Freedom of Speech.

  16. What is the name of God and happened to the courts of all countries, certainly there are many good Muslims with the radical Muslims that rape and kill women and children and non-believers should be executed. That is not Muslim law that is Prejudice in action and should be treated as a crime.

  17. Freedom of speech is one of the most precious privileges of freedom, and freedom to express evil in any name should be a right whether it be religious or political or whatever, there are many good Muslims in the world that will not harm anybody unless you trying to harm them keep that in mind because the courts will dictate what you can and can’t say.

  18. Needs to put a stop to it. They should live under our laws not Sharia law if they live in our country they are taking over and it’s time the other EU countries say enough is enough to Brussels

  19. Sharia Law is for the Muslim countries. End of. Muslims should and abide by the ways of their host countries. If they don’t fit in. Then fuck off. Why should our lives get worse and why should we suffer because of their twisted ideologies. Have respect for your host country. Never try and take over. That is invading. Fact

  20. We live as free people in a free country we should not adopt a foreign law just to suit another culture we need a new government who is going to protect the people of the UK not the Muslim population

  21. Jesus returns as a triumphant warrior at the end of days, to battle Satan one last time!. Where do muslims fit into this. They dismiss Christianity, so they will follow Satan. Its just that simple!

  22. Call a spade a spade or red red if it looks like it smells like it call it what it is and screw the muslins and their laws. Eueropeans are to soft we had bail them out to many times.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
