So it's not ok for this person (Azhar Ahmed) to make a passing comment about soldiers that kill innocent people, but it's ok for people on the Azhar Ahmed scumbag group to say Azhar Ahmed should be killed?!

The people of that group have just done exactly the same thing as Azhar Ahmed, but instead they said Azhar Ahmed should be killed, not soldiers?! Double-standards or what!

I'm not supporting this chap at all but the people that made that group should be equally punished if Azhar Ahmed is to be punished.

And also, which I forget to mention but I meant to, is that I don't think it an intelligent response.

Because it says that a person who happens to be brown can be charged with incitement of racial hatred for saying stupid, disgusting things. But a person who is white who makes the same comments about British soldiers will not be charged for racial hatred.

I'm sure the double standards goes in a number of directions, but the fact is if he wasn't brown the charge wouldn't be put to him, so in some sense I find the charge in itself to be racist.

Prob not stoning but something bad, maybe prison or perhaps 100 lashes of the whip

If you condemn such things why advocate the becoming of it

Okay, if you have Facebook, search for the page "Azhar Ahmed scumbag!!" and have a look at their profile picture, it is the comments this young lad left and believe me, it is horrible stuff.
Not quite as rosy as the newspaper makes it out to be...

Can you ask the same question or opinion to the Anti-War crowd in UK? Do you think they will say anything different? (perhaps different verbage) due to fear of being a native UK citizen. However I do agree that the Kid should not make any comments against the soldiers as they are trained to kill. War can do a magical number on a person. There are always 2 sides to the story coming out of the theatre. The kid should have vented his anger and frustration against any policies and/or politician.

This is absolutely ludicrous.

I don't even know what to say.

Being charged for posting an opinion? Are you kidding me?

not surprising there are still people around who are glad to see tyranny arise just to see their own perspectives shoved down the throat of everyone else

Sometimes I can't believe some of the stuff kids post on the internet. Go to youtube and look at any video with a cute little toddler doing something, like dancing, laughing etc. After watching the cute video, take a look at the comments. Read through a bunch of them. People write the most horrifying things I could ever imagine. It makes me sick. I watched a really funny video of a little two year old dancing and then read through the comments. One person actually said, "I want to rape that baby"! I couldn't believe it. When someone writes threats, I do believe they should go to jail. Maybe some people will start to think before they post. And although I don't like what some people write, they shouldn't go to jail for just posting an opinion. Azhar Ahmed wrote opinions. Threats should be taken seriously though. It's real easy for kids...and adults to act like idiots when they are hiding behind a computer. The computer is a great tool but I also believe it's the gateway to hell. So many kids lives are being ruined by facebook, cyber bullying, naked pictures etc. It's unbelievable!

Sounds to me like their lives are being ruined by bad parenting.

Problem with kids these days is they think they have some sort of right to be on the internet, and they everyone else in the world should be brought down to a U rating to accommodate their presence.

Nothing but terrible parents trying to wash away their responsibility.

I don't understand. He posted a personal opinion on Facebook and was arrested for doing so?

Regardless of his opinion, I find this rather ominous. Or am I missing something?


^quoted for truth...

Are there now thought and speech police?

Yea I am at a loss as to how you can arrest someone for a personal opinion but yet it's being ironically celebrated on a site that is all about personal freedom and less government control. Ironic or sad? To me I don't get the point of this at all. I mean here in the US we have some soldier that went psycho going and killing civilians in Afghanastan, but apparently it's bad to speak ill of the soldiers... Yea ok I must be missing something somewhere.

If people put the effort into protesting about the ILLEGAL wars that there putting into hating a certain azhar ahmed ( im hearing they have firebombed his house )

then maybe they wouldn't be any dead soldiers for him to ( supposedly ) laugh at, then again its a nice distraction for the people of yorkshire at this time instead of directing our anger at the government and getting our troops home we are rounding up on one muslim man

I think its a complete set up , a nice distraction away from the real issue which is GET OUR TROOPS HOME...........!

Lets face it, this one soldiers actions will have a massive impact on how the Afghan population perceive not only the British and U.S armys but both Britain and U.S. as country and culture.
I think if the U.S. doesn't extradite this person to be tried in an Afghan court, then the Afghan people will lose all faith in our armies and more than likely give the al-Qaeda more support than they have.

In my opinion, it's about time the British government stood up against these type of people.

I think it's disgusting that guys (coincidentally all Muslims) can congregate together and spit at our troops when they return from tour and how they get away with desecrating war memorials in this country.

If I flew into an Arab country and said "Allah is a pig" I'd be whipped and probably stoned to death!

Don't you stand up for his right to free speech? Isn't that what makes for a free, civil society?

I think all troops that participate in the killing of innocent civilians should die. They deserve to get cancer from the rampant depleted uranium use that pollutes another country anyway.

THERE I SAID IT. CALL 999 ON ME!@!@

Oh wait, I don't have a Muslim enough name for anyone to care.
And I'm in the USA where freedom of speech still (pretty much) exists.
