An Australian man has been sentenced to 500 lashes and a year in jail by a Saudi Arabian court after being found guilty of blasphemy, Canberra said on Wednesday.

Reports said Mansor Almaribe, 45, was detained in the city of Medina on Nov. 14 while making the hajj pilgrimage and accused of insulting companions of the prophet Mohammed.

His eldest son, Jamal, told the newspaper this week that his father had been reading and praying in a group when accosted by religious police and arrested.

Salam,

this is nothing new my dear brother. They've been indulging in barbaric acts for some time now. I pray to GOD for those who live their with the Qur'an alone mindset. This was in just 6 hours ago.

Peace,
That is interesting, maybe that will give them an excuse to invade Iran to arrest all the Shias there, and/or take is as a further opportunity to do pogroms on their shia communities in the eastern province...
41:53 We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (Qur'an) is the truth.

500 Lashes! Oh Wow, isn't that like commiting adultry 5 times?  :o
God is Merciful enough to decree 100 lashes for adultry, and they decree 500 for speaking against people who allegedly existed during the time of the Prophet Muhammed? Who stipulated such Laws!
Even in the Quran, disbelievers called even the Prophet Muhammed a Bewitched man! (17:48 & 25:9), and God Let them Go without punishment!!!

"Do they have idols who decree for them religious laws never authorized by God? If it were not for the predetermined decision, they would have been judged immediately. Indeed, the transgressors have incurred a painful retribution. (42:21)
