Why is it a crime to raise doubts about Holocaust, asks Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khameini

LONDON: Iran’s current Supreme Leader Ali Khameini questioned the dual standards around gagging media when it comes to questioning the Holocaust but not doing the same when the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was insulted. “Does freedom of expression mean insulting, especially a sacred personage?”asked Khameini on Twitter Wednesday. “Ask your President why he supports insulting God’s Messenger in the name of freedom of expression. Isn’t this stupid act an insult to the reason of the ppl who elected him?”

Khameini then called out the blatant hypocrisy surrounding freedom of speech when doubting the Holocaust was concerned.

“The next question to ask is: why is it a crime to raise doubts about the Holocaust? Why should anyone who writes about such doubts be imprisoned while insulting the Prophet (pbuh) is allowed?” he tweeted again.

Khameini is the third prominent Muslim world leader who has criticised the French president for his anti-Islam statements and support for blasphemous cartoons insulting Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
