Indonesian woman acquitted on blasphemy charge for taking dog into the mosque

The woman Suzethe Margaret entered the mosque in Bogor. She stated she is catholic and her husband is going to get married in the mosque later.

She blamed the mosque for converting the religion of her husband to Islam as her dog runs around the mosque. The people in the mosque told that they don’t know of the wedding and don’t have any knowledge of it either.

The woman reportedly also kicked a guard when she was told to leave. The video of Suzethe entering the mosque wearing shoes and letting her dog run around went viral in July in social media.

The video enraged Muslims because dogs are considered impure. It sparked anger in the Muslim majority country to let a dog run around in their worship place.

On Wednesday, a panel of judges in Bogor found suzethe guilty of blasphemy. However, the judges said that the woman could not be held responsible for her actions.

According to a psychiatric examination that took place in 2013, Suzethe Margaret has paranoid schizophrenia. Prosecutors had demanded the sentence of eight months of imprisonment. But she was spared jail because of her mental illness.
