A Brit-Indian executive could face up to three years in a Dubai jail after being accused of insulting the Prophet Muhammad in a text.

Deep Marwaha,35,reportedly made the remark in an abuse-filled message sent to a Muslim colleague while both worked in Saudi Arabia.

According to The Sun,the massage allegedly ended with the taunt,‘now show what you can do. I know lots of sheiks.’

Marwaham,who was born in London to Indian parents,said that he was asleep when the text was sent.

Meanwhile,a judge in Dubai has adjourned the case until September.
