Cruel Fate and Terrible Irony

Last week, Johann Hari wrote an article in the UK’s The Independent defending free speech for everyone living under oppressive religions. As a result, central Calcutta was brought to a standstill with riots by fervent Muslims, death threats sent to the author and newspaper staff, and the arrest of an editor who published the article.

Visiting the original article, I couldn’t help but note the sad irony of the banner ad above the article. Looks like Hari is another unintentional victim of contextual advertising.
