A Bahraini court on Sunday sentenced a Shiite Rafdi (May Alla's curse be upon him) to two years in jail for insulting a wife of Prophet Mohammed (praise be upon him), Aisha (رضي الله تعالى عنها) on the Internet.
The criminal court found the unnamed 19-year-old man guilty of “defaming” Aisha رضي الله عنها, the general prosecution said in a statement, describing the defendant as having “deviated thoughts.”
It said the man wrote “phrases that are too dirty and degrading to mention, defaming the mother of the believers, Aisha رضي الله عنها ,” and added that a police probe led to his arrest.
The daily al-Wasat reported that a man had insulted Aishaرضي الله عنها , in comments online.
"The accused entered a website and made comments that were so morally filthy and depraved that the tongue could not pronounce them, and they slandered Aishaرضي الله عنها," the Arabic-language newspaper said on its website.
It said prosecutors ordered police to investigate after receiving a complaint concerning the online activities of someone of "deviant thought and corrupt belief". The report was also published on Bahraini daily al-Watan's website.
