Over the past few days a great deal of controversy is underway over a set of 12 comics published by a Danish Newspaper called Jyllands Posten, the Muslim world is abuzz with calls for boycotting all Danish products and impact has already been felt by dairy giant Aria Foods for sales having already plummeted to zero as reported by BBC.
These comical interpretations are actually an attempt to portray the image of Prophet Mohammed which has created an uproar worldwide sparking yet another attack on peaceful Muslims, in the form of an organised propaganda/assault to further irritate the Muslims. This attack technically is not a direct assault on Muslims but is being used as an irritant to entice some sort of reaction. Sadly it seems as if the Muslims continue to be pushed into a corner espcailly after 9/11 and continue to remain in the intense investigative spotlight for a good five years. Sometimes my heart screams Enough is Enough, lets try to figure out what exactly is the root cause of evil.
An open apology has been issued by the Editor in Chief of the paper.
In our opinion, the 12 drawings were sober. They were not intended to be offensive, nor were they at variance with Danish law, but they have indisputably offended many Muslims for which we apologize.
……They aren’t explicitly graphic but tend to mock the one person Muslims consider and hold very dear to their heart, if the Danish paper had no idea about the emotional attachment to this sacred figure then it I think they are so naive that someone should advise them to close shop and move on.
UPDATE 3rd March: The images that were on display for the past few days and were of intense debate have now been removed from this server in compliance with the recent Supreme Court Decision in Pakistan prohibiting all websites from displaying the controversial images.
