Teacher Given Jail Term, Lashes for Blasphemy

What a "system of justice"! Three years and 300 lashes for the victimless offence of "blasphemy". We can't have teachers asking pupils to question things, can we? On the other hand, the teachers who encouraged their pupils to cheer 9/11 didn't even get a reprimand. Beat up and rape your Filipino housemaid instead, and you'll probably get off without even being arrested. No wonder that so many of us are ashamed of our backward country.
