Russian Newsweek Warned for Insulting Muslims


Usually we see Muslims trying to stifle our freedom of speech. It happened in Michigan and the United Nations. But this time it was not even Muslims, it was Russian prosecutors. I wonder if these prosecutors find the Koran insulting to non-Muslims? That is if they even bothered to read one.


Russian Newsweek warned for "insulting" Muslims

MOSCOW (AP) — Moscow prosecutors say they have warned the Russian-language edition of the Newsweek magazine for allegedly insulting Muslims.
The Moscow Prosecutor's Office says the magazine published two stories that could be "insulting or humiliating" to Muslims. It said Tuesday on article also included one of the 2005 Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.
The magazine published the stories on Muslims in the European Union in late October. It could not be immediately reached for comment. About 20 million Muslims live in Russia.
Under President Vladimir Putin and his successor, Dmitry Medvedev, Russian news organizations have come under increasing official pressure. If prosecutors' warnings are ignored, publications can be fined or threatened with closure.
