Islam irony watch

This is amusing:

Reporter Rafig Tagi and editor Samir Huseinov, both of the newspaper Senet, went on trial [Center for Journalism in Extreme Situations backgrounder] Tuesday in the former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan for allegedly insulting Islam.

Violent protests broke out last year in the predominantly Muslim nation in response to Tagi’s November article, which suggested that Islam has been responsible for supressing people, and limiting freedom.

Well then. Someone criticizes Islam for limiting freedom and gets arrested for it.

Actually, this isn’t amusing at all.
