German Man Sentenced To 1 Year For Printing Koran On Toilet Paper

Bookmark and Share

As I reported last week a German man was charged for printing the word Koran on toilet paper, sending it to mosques and TV stations and offering it for sale on the internet.

He was found guilty and given a 1 year sentence, though it was suspended for 5 years.


The 61-year-old man, identified only as Manfred van H., was given a one-year jail sentence, suspended for five years, and ordered to complete 300 hours of community service, a district court in the western German town of Luedinghausen ruled.


Manfred van H. printed out sheets of toilet paper bearing the word "Koran" shortly after a group of Muslims carried out a series of bomb attacks in London in July 2005. He sent the paper to German television stations, magazines and some 15 mosques.

Prosecutors said that in an accompanying letter Manfred van H. called Islam's holy book a "cookbook for terrorists."

He also offered his toilet paper for sale on the Internet at a price of 4 euros ($4.76) per roll, saying the proceeds would go toward a "memorial to all the victims of Islamic terrorism."

The maximum sentence for insulting religious beliefs under the German criminal code is three years in prison.

The fact he was convicted at all for this is ridiculous.

They actually have a law against insulting religious beliefs in Germany? How fascist is that?

So if I got to Germany and say to some Christian that I think Christianity is full of crap regarding abortion, or tell a Muslim that I think Mohammed wasn't a prophet, I could be sent to jail for 3 years.

Or you are reading/watching the wrong media - I heard about it (see ZDF for example: http://www.heute.de/ZDFheute/inhalt/26/0,3672,3902298,00.html )
But yes, it is outrageous, no doubt about it. Germany sucks when it comes to things like that.
