Commenting article: Bulgaria's Court Finds 13 Imams Guilty

Bulgaria's Pazadrzhik regional court found all 13 imams guilty of propagating anti-democratic ideology. 

The court imposed one effective sentenced, two suspended sentences. The effective four-year sentence has handed down to Ahmed Musa Ahmed, while Said Mtulu and Pazardzhik's regional mufti Abdullah Salih received suspended sentenced. The remaining 10 religious leaders were fined BGN 5000 each. All were accused of membership in the unregistered in Bulgaria radical religious organization Al Waqf Al Islami. Three of the imams were also indicted for propagating hatred based on religion, but this accusation was later dropped.

The trial of the Islam religious leaders started in September 2012. 

They were accused of propagating anti-democratic ideology against the principles of the division of powers by imposing Shariah law in Bulgaria, thus threatening the national security.

Good for Bulgaria that it seeks to stop those who are trying to change the culture of the country from within. One only needs to travel to Western Europe to see how their cultures have been destroyed and the ordinary citizen can do nothing because all their politicians are too afraid to do what Bulgaria has done.

So presumably the Red Trash will be the next to appear in court charged with "propagating anti-democratic ideology"?
