“The prosecution reviewed the recordings of sermons, which included insulting and cursing phrases against the companions of Prophet Mohammed,” the Chief Prosecutor said.
The man was earlier arrested and referred to the criminal court after he was confronted with the content of the recordings and admitted to the crime.
Al Mannai said:
“These disgraceful practices and offence of religious symbols can cause strife in the society, and they do not fall under the concept of freedom of opinion and expression.”
“Such practices constitute an explicit violation of these values and freedom of expression, which are preserved and protected under the law, he said, stressing that the Public Prosecution firmly assesses criminal responsibility for them.”
