Iran sentences 21-year-old to DEATH for “insulting the Prophet of Islam” on instant messaging app

StaffRebel Columnist

Sina Dehghan was only 19 when he was arrested by the Iranian revolutionary guard at a military barracks in Tehran back in 2015. His offense was allegedly insulting Islam on the instant messaging app LINE.

According to The Daily Mail, he has now been sentenced to death for what he said about the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, although what was said has never been revealed.

Human rights activists claim that Dehghan was fooled into singing his own confession under the belief he would be released if he did so. However, after signing the confession, he remained incarcerated.

In Iran, insulting Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, is punishable by death. However, if the accused tells the court insults were a result of anger or a mistake, the sentenced may only be 74 lashings.

What a wonderful country Iran is!

This happens far more often than is reported.

Isn’t it strange that Iran also refuses to define what constitutes blasphemy (Islamophobia)?! He probably tweeted something about Mohammad’s prescription to drink camel urine for all that ails you; and, when he did he felt sicker than before!

A harsh sentence, yes. Now that M103 is passed, I’m wondering what the sentence will be in Canada for apping anti-Islamic messages after Trudeau creates our new Sharia blasphemy law?

The sentence dose seem a little harsh. What the hell, it’s just one Muslim less to worry about.
