Tunisian Woman’s Offensive ‘Sura Corona’ Lands Her in Hot Water

Tunisian blogger Emna Chargui posted, on Facebook, a short text entitled “Sura Corona.” Her satirical post, written in May, attempts to mimic the Qur’aan. Chargui made fun of the COVID 19 situation in a style that mocks the Holy Qur’aan.

Chargui’s parody, however, backfired on her. She was summoned by Tunisia’s judicial police, and two days later, questioned by members of a public prosecutor’s office. The 27-year-old was subsequently charged with offending religion and incitement to hatred.

News24 reports that a Tunis court on Tuesday sentenced Chargui to 6 months imprisonment. Not in custody yet, she has three weeks to appeal.
