  1. This is a fascinating story.

    Alyaksandr Zdvizhkou, former deputy editor-in-chief of Zhoda newspaper, was sentenced to three years in prison for “inciting religious enmity.” Two years earlier, his newspaper, now closed, had reprinted the cartoons of Muhammad made famous in the Danish newspaper Jullands-Posten.

    Even Ismail Varanovich, the head of the spiritual body of Belarusian Muslims, protested. “I asked the court for leniency. He didn’t call on anyone to commit a crime. This was a way of informing people about what was published in Danish newspapers,” Varanovich told Belarusian media after the verdict.
