Islamic humor

Truth is stranger than fiction. In Pakistan a medical doctor was arrested for throwing away the business card of a salesman. Salesman calls on doctor; leaves business card. Doctor throws away business card. Salesman complains to the police. Doctor is arrested on the charge of defaming the prophet of Islam, Mohammed. Huh? The salesman's first name is Mohammed. So he claims that ignoring him is insulting the prophet, because he is named after Mohammed. And the police make an arrest. This took place in the southern city of Hyderabad and Dr. Naushad Valiyani is the victim of the Islamic police. Strange. Take these people seriously. Well, try to.
