DACCA: (Christian Times) – Bangladesh police on Sunday arrested 25-year-old blogger from the airport over blasphemy charges. The youth has been alleged of having committed blasphemy against Islam and its prophet.

The police arrested Asad uz-Zaman Noor when he was trying to flee the country at the international airport. Asad has been alleged of having committed blasphemy against Islam and its prophet.

Earlier this year, hundreds of Muslims had protested against Asad Noor in Amtali town of Bangladesh. The protesters said that Noor had committed blasphemy while the head of a local Islamic seminary had registered a case against him too.

Asad has been charged under the strict online laws of Bangladesh and he might be sentenced up to 14 years in prison if the charges against him are proven right.
