Hate Crime (7010_17)
I would like to know, under current law, is public or open criticism of Islam as a faith, religion or worldview or criticism of the Quran, Islamic doctrine, Muhammad the prophet or the Hadith (Islamic source) a crime?
Hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim, or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards a person based on their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or on their gender identity. It also applies to those who are perceived to be a member of those groups.
