Influencer bags two years imprisonment for reciting Islamic prayer before eating pork in Indonesia
A TikTok influencer has been sentenced to two years imprisonment in Indonesia for reciting an Islamic prayer before eating pork in a viral video.
In the video, Lina Mukherjee cringes as she utters a Muslim prayer that translates to 'in the name of God' before consuming crispy pork skin.
The 33-year-old was reported by a resident in March for the video, which amassed millions of views. The video was widely criticised in the Muslim-majority country, DailyMail reports.
She was sentenced on Tuesday, September 19, after being found guilty of “spreading information aimed at inciting h@tred against religious individuals and specific groups” at a court in the South Sumatra city of Palembang.
Pork is forbidden under Islam, which is the dominant religion in Indonesia. Mukherjee identifies as a Muslim and her actions were condemned by conservative groups including the country’s top Muslim clerical body, the Indonesian Ulema Council, which issued a ruling calling the video blasphemous.
She was also fined 250 million rupiah ($16,200) for which her jail term would be extended by three months if it was not paid.

Most you drag religion into it... Just eat your meat in peace. We like giving ourselves unwarranted trouble.

Where is my human right?
My religion forbids eating pork and I eat it, then I should be punished with jail term and fine?
Is it by force I should obey all my religious teachings?
