The editor of a women's magazine, Haqooq-i-Zan (women's rights), has been jailed for two years in Afghanistan after being convicted of publishing anti-Islamic articles, including one challenging a belief that Muslims who convert to other religions should be stoned to death.
On Saturday, Kabul's primary court convicted Ali Mohaqiq Nasab of blasphemy, presiding judge Ansarullah Malawizada said yesterday. "The Ulama Council sent us a letter saying that he should be punished so I sentenced him to two years' jail," he said.
The council is Afghanistan's main body of Islamic clergy.
