This is what the future of the West looks like, unless we turn things around in a big way. Social media giants and mainstream media outlets are already disturbingly sharia-compliant, and don’t dare publish anything that Muslims might find offensive. If this isn’t stopped, it will be the end of the freedom of speech and free society.

“Vendor held for ‘insulting Islam,’’” Daily Star, February 3, 2017:

A roadside vendor in Joypurhat was arrested on Wednesday night for allegedly posting a photo “insulting Islam” on Facebook.

Sujan Mohanta, 37, of Panchbibi municipality was arrested around 11:30pm. Panchbibi Police Station’s Sub-inspector Zafar filed a case against him under the ICT Act….

The incident sparked tension in the area with some 50 people demonstrating in the municipality headquarters yesterday afternoon. Additional police were deployed at Sujan’s home, Hindu temples and mosques in the area, police said.

Sujan’s family believed he is innocent. They also said they were living in fear of attacks.

“Somebody took Sujan’s phone and posted something on Facebook. My husband can’t post such a thing on Facebook as he knows its consequences. Besides, he was too busy with celebrating Saraswati Puja,” said Sujan’s wife Boby Mohanta.

Rights organisation Ain o Salish Kendra in two letters urged the deputy commissioner and the superintendent of police in Joypurhat to take effective measures for the safety of Sujan’s family.
