Does Anyone Read Our Blog in Iran?

Posted by redsatellite on July 8, 2008

NAH. Probably not.

A new law has been passed by the Iranian parliament extending use of the death penalty to online crimes. Previously, only people charged with insulting Islam or drug trafficking had been sentenced to death.

In accordance with the new law, bloggers and website editors can be sentenced to death for crimes such as promoting corruption, prostitution and apostasy, the International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX) reported.

I’ve been insulting Imams and muftis for over 3 years. And I’ve certainly promoted apostasy. I guess my reader base in Iran is pretty thin…huh.
