Pakistan Sentences Actress to Jail – Because Using Religious Music on TV Is Offensive to Islam

Dependent upon how tough your employer is on such things, the pic of Veena Malik on the Reason site (where there is more about the story) may be NSFW, but this video of Malik's wedding is totally innocuous. It was enough to get Malik, her husband, and two others sentenced to twenty-six years in jail each, however for offending Islamic sensibilities. Why? Because it includes religious music, and using that music for a TV show is offensive.
Some things you just can't make up.
