A Turkish cartoonist will be put on trial for a caricature he drew in which he renounced god, daily Habertürk reported on its website Wednesday.

The Istanbul chief public prosecutor´s office charged cartoonist Bahadır Baruter with "insulting the religious values adopted by a part of the population" and requested his imprisonment for up to one year.

Baruter´s caricature depicted an imam and believers praying in a mosque. One of the characters is talking to God on his cellphone and asking to be pardoned from the last part of the prayer because he has errands to run.

Within the wall decorations of the mosque, Baruter hid the words, "There is no Allah, religion is a lie." The cartoon was published in the weekly "Penguen" humor magazine.

Turkish Religous Affairs and Foundation Members´ Union and some citizens filed complaints against Baruter.

The public prosecutor´s office accepted the complaints and filed a lawsuit against the cartoonist

OMG!  Somebody doesn´t believe in God...STOP THE PRESSES!  {#emotions_dlg.lol_fast} 

 

Is this person in trouble because he doesn´t believe in God or that he insulted Islam?

A year in prison? Come on, off with his head! How can one not believe in invisible creatures whose only proof of existence is a book that says he exists (logically, so does Harry Potter lol)

Prison is a place for rapists who are too stubborn to propose to their victims {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

So what are you suggesting?  Harry Potter ISN´T real?  This is a hanging offense!
