Malaysian Blogger Jailed for Insulting Islam

NEW ZEALAND HERALD: Malaysia's leading blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin has been ordered to spend two years in detention under internal security laws after being accused of insulting Islam.

His wife, Lee Abdulah, said the founder of the controversial Malaysia Today website had been sent to the Kamunting detention centre in northern Perak state under a detention order signed by the Home Minister.

Abdulah said police had told her "he will remain there for two years with no trial". [Source: NZ HERALD] September 24, 2008

I do believe that someone left a comment on this bpost. If so, I have erased it by mistake. My sincerest apologies to that person.

It happened because there was a glitsch when I blogged this: It got posted twice. I erased the wrong post.

Again, I am so sorry.

Please be so kind as to re-post the comment. It will NOT be taken down this time.
