In a statement, the European Court of Human Rights said: “The Court found in particular that the domestic courts comprehensively assessed the wider context of the applicant’s statements and carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected, and served the legitimate aim of preserving religious peace in Austria.

“It held that by considering the impugned statements as going beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate, and by classifying them as an abusive attack on the Prophet of Islam which could stir up prejudice and threaten religious peace, the domestic courts put forward relevant and sufficient reasons.”

Well it just so happens that my religion compels me to express my disgust and eternal condemnation for pedos, so I remain in complete harmony with the ECHR. Compare Mohammedanism with the Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church:

(Luke 17:1-2) "Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones."

BTW, every time I hear the term "human rights" my eyes roll so hard the tide goes out. Total and complete bullshit used, almost without fail, to deny the very same.
