Woman accused of attacking Islam gets three-month sentence
A woman accused of attacking Islam by preaching the bible on the streets of Abu Dhabi has been jailed.
Abu Dhabi Criminal Court yesterday handed out the three-month sentence to the Indian woman after she was found guilty of proselytising and handing out copies of the text on the streets of the UAE capital.
Court records show that an Arab man reported the woman to police after he saw her preaching on Al Najda Street.
The man told prosecutors he asked the woman what the book was and she replied it was a “special book” that cured disease and said that it was “so beneficial”.
