A Bruges, Belgium criminal court convicted a man for shredding a Koran on March 6, 2013.
imposed a four-month prison sentence and a 600 euro fine upon him. He
now additionally faces a revocation of a previous suspension of an
18-month prison sentence for having set a fire in a wood. This case
highlights yet again the greater restrictions on speech in free
societies outside of the United States and how these restrictions can
limit open debate about Islam.
