Pakistani Muslim is jailed for 13 years for ‘liking’ a post which referred to the Prophet Mohammed on Facebook

A Pakistani man was sentenced to 13 years in prison yesterday for allegedly posting religiously offensive material about the Prophet Mohammed on his Facebook page.

Rizwan Haider, 25, was convicted in an anti-terrorism court of three charges including promoting sectarian hatred, after he supposedly published a post referring to Prophet Mohammed.

‘This case… was registered against Haider, who is a Shiite Muslim by faith, in January for posting objectionable material against the belief of Sunni Muslims,’ Adeel Chattah, public prosecutor in the case, told AFP.
