British Muslim organization, the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB), has reacted angrily to a website that published a series of satirical cartoons featuring the prophet Jesus and the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them both).
Describing the content of the Jesus and Mo website as "extremely offensive to believers" in Al-Ahram Online on Tuesday, the MAB questioned “the wisdom of any individual or organization that places at risk the dignity and values of anyone else, even if they might not hold those values.”
In 2005, Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten newspaper published offensive cartoons of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), spreading a wave of protests across the Muslim world. Islamophobic critics defended the cartoons under the argument that they were exercising their freedom of speech, while counter-critics said that freedom of speech does not amount to the freedom to insult.
Mass campaigns to raise awareness of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by Muslims increased throughout Europe and the West in general following the cartoons.Last Mod: 23 Ocak 2014, 10:04
