An Indonesian man has been jailed for 30 months after writing God doesn't exist on his Facebook page. Alexander Aan was imprisoned for sharing atheist material about the religious character Mohammed online.
He started an atheist group on Facebook on which he shared comic strips of the prophet having sex with his servant, a court in western Sumatra heard.
He was found guilty of deliberately spreading information inciting religious hatred and animosity .
Aan was beaten by an angry mob and arrested by police in his hometown of Pulau Punjung in western Sumatra in January after posting the material online and declaring himself an atheist.
The court had earlier indicted Aan with two other charges, persuading others to embrace atheism and blasphemy. But the court convicted him of the most serious charge and dropped the other two.
Aan's arrest sparked outrage among Indonesians and international activists, who showed their support on his Facebook group and circulated petitions to have his charges dropped.
