Indian charged in UAE with 'insulting Islam'

Dubai, April 14 (IANS): An Indian man has been charged in a UAE court for allegedly posting on a social networking site comments that insult Islam, a media report said on Tuesday.

The 41-year-old Indian was charged in the Court of First Instance in Dubai for allegedly making the insults through his conversations and posts on Facebook, Khaleej Times reported.

The Indian made the comments last year after watching a video clip about the violence in Iraq.

The police were informed about the incident by another Indian man, who said in his complaint that he received a message on his phone on July 6 last year that said "there was a post on Facebook that insulted Islam".

The public prosecution said the defendant's mobile phone was seized and sent to the criminal lab and that his conversations showed there was indeed an insult to Islam.
