The details are a little fuzzy as it is some days ago since I read it, but I wonder if it was the chief editor of Charlie Hebdo who had recently made the point that only in a secular society do people have the freedom of religion.

These days, Saudi Arabia seems a good example of a nation and an Islamic theocracy which is persecuting both muslims and non-muslimson on religious grounds.
