Imagine the scene: a young man is led away in handcuffs to begin a prison sentence as his mother is left crying in the courtroom.

The young man in question was found guilty of singing a song that mocked and ridiculed a religious leader and his followers.

So where might this shocking story originate?
Was it Iran? Saudi Arabia? Afghanistan? Perhaps it was Russia, a variation of the Pussy Riot saga, without the worldwide publicity?
