June 15, 2012 – Man Jailed For Writing “God Doesn’t Exist” On His Facebook Page

A 30 year old Indonesian man(atheist) identified as Alexander Aan has been jailed for 2 1/2 years for writing “God doesn’t exist” on his Facebook page.

He was imprisoned on Thursday the 14th of June, 2012 for sharing explicit material about prophet Mohammed online.

Alexander Aan started an atheist group on Facebook on which he shared comic strips of the prophet having sex with his servant, a court in western Sumatra heard today.

Alexander has been found guilty of ‘deliberately spreading information inciting religious hatred and animosity’, presiding judge Eka Prasetya Budi Dharma told the Muaro Sijunjung district court in western Sumatra.

Before his arrest, Aan was beaten by an angry mob in his hometown of Pulau Punjung in western Sumatra in January after posting the material online and declaring himself an atheist.

The court had earlier indicted Aan with two other charges – persuading others to embrace atheism and blasphemy.

Aan’s arrest sparked outrage among Indonesians and international activists, who showed their support on his Facebook group and circulated petitions to have his charges dropped. (daily mail)

    It’s sheer awkward to imprison the man. Everyone has his or her belief.
