We Can’t Say What Blasphemy the Arrestee Committed — That Would Itself Be Blasphemous

The Independent (UK) reports on a story from Pakistan:

[A 17-year-old] schoolboy … was arrested and imprisoned for writing alleged blasphemous remarks about the Prophet Muhammad on an exam paper….

It is unclear what Mr Samiullah may have written. When the police were asked about his alleged offence, they declined to elaborate, suggesting that it would blasphemous to repeat the words written.

Wouldn’t want to say “Jehovah” now …

Thanks to Prof. Howard Friedman (Religion Clause) for the pointer.
