Austria: European Human rights Courts says calling Mohammed a paedophile for marrying a child of 6 at 52 years of age is a hate crime.

(Wien) The European Court of Human Rights(EHCR)  has stated that an Austrian woman’s conviction for calling the prophet of Islam a pedophile didn't breach her freedom of speech.The woman was reported in 2009 after a seminar discussion that the Prophet Muhammad’s marriage to a six-year-old girl was basically “pedophilia.”

"A 56-year-old and a 6-year-old? What do you call that? Give me an example? What do we call it, if it is not pedophilia?" 
Somebody complained and the  woman was charged and convicted by a Vienna court in 2011 of “disparaging religious doctrines.” The woman was ordered to pay a $547 fine, plus costs she appealed to a higher court which upheld the 2011 ruling. She then took her case to the EHCR.

The ECHR said the Austrian court’s decision “served thelegitimate aim of preserving religious peace.”
