Sharia Law NOT Kind to Dl-ers

A new law has been passed by the Iranian parliament allowing the use of the death penalty to online crimes. Until now, only those charged with insulting Islam or drug trafficking had been sentenced to death.

Blogging about subjects such as minority rights and freedom of speech and religion has already carried a risk. In 2005, blogger Mojtaba Saminejad was tried before a local court in Teheran charged with insulting the prophets, which carries the death penalty. He was eventually acquitted. Last year, two Kurdish bloggers were sentenced to death on charges of subversive activities against national security, spying and separatist propaganda.

Blogging is very popular in Iran - even the president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has his own blog and the Persian language is one of the most commonly used on the Internet.

The municipality of Teheran has now decided to follow the international trend of micro blogging and decided that every neighborhood in Teheran will have its own blog, the Iranian site Hamshahri Online reported.

But watch your tongue, because if you slip up, your ass is gonna be publically stoned.
