A 17-year-old French student posted a video critical of Islam on Instagram. Soon she received one hate message after another, some going so far as to threaten her with death. A total of 13 people have already been arrested in this case. How deep do you have to sink to threaten a 17-year-old girl with death for a video.
French student Mila, the only 17-year-old girl, managed to start a real riot in France. The discussion on freedom of expression has now completely erupted in France. THE ANNOUNCEMENT report that Mila had already uploaded the first video last year due to harassment. She has been bullied regularly for loving girls.
With the second video, the matter got completely worse. In the video, she has gone mad about Islam, which she says is very intolerant of gays and lesbians. In the video, she says the following:
“I hate religion. The Koran only preaches hatred, Islam is shit, I say what I think. I am not racist. You cannot be racist towards a religion. Your God, I’m sticking a finger up her ass. Thanks see you soon! “
Since that second video, her life has changed completely. She is bombarded daily with hate speech and even death threats. The police are taking the matter seriously: Mila has now gone into hiding and is under constant police security.
One of the suspects was jailed for three years for making a video purporting to slit Mila’s throat.
Remember that this “riot” concerns a 17 year old girl. So we see that criticism of religion is still not secure in Europe. And this is a crass scandal. In France, this problem has been dissipating for a year now, according to Mila’s lawyer, the threats have not yet ceased. It is therefore not surprising that in France the debate on freedom of expression has completely resumed.
Mila has since expressed regret for some of the rude comments, but she insists that Islam is a religion of hate. You can hardly blame her right now, thirteen volidiots have been arrested by police on death threats, and many other religious fanatics go to the trouble of sending hate mail to Mila every day. So you are really done.
