The Tunisian judiciary announced the referral of a blog to the criminal court, after publishing a text on the new Corona virus emerging on its Facebook page, which contains “a parody of the Qur’an,” according to local media.

The court charged blogger Amna al-Sharqi, 26, with “harming sacred things, attacking good morals and inciting violence.”

On Monday, Al-Sharqi published a topic about the Corona Virus called “Corona Surat”, which caused a state of controversy among the pioneers of social networking sites in Tunisia, and some described it as “inflammatory” and “disrespectful”.

This post made a lot of noise, as the judicial police intervened after consulting the Public Prosecution, and then the matter was referred to the Criminal Court at the Court of First Instance.

A number of Tunisian activists had posted on Facebook, in the name of the young woman, Amna Al Sharqi, after sharing a picture of what she described as “Surat Korona”.

The controversial picture mimics the form of the Qur’anic verses in the Qur’an, and this is what many saw as a “distortion of the Qur’an and a provocation to the feelings of Tunisians” especially in the month of Ramadan.

The commentators also poured out their anger on the young woman, stole her tongue, and later celebrated her transfer to court.

Then the young woman published a new post in which she responded to the threats and death messages she received, so she wrote: “I did not offend anyone. The image you published is not a distortion of the Qur’an. It does not include words from the Qur’an or the name of God.
