Morocco: Blasphemous Cartoon

Foulla says that Al-Azhar, the highest seat of religious learning in the Sunni world, vowed to raise the issue of the provocative caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) published by the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten last September, with the UN and international human rights organizations.

    I saw the caricatures.
    Actually, no harm was done to the prophet. He is beyond harm.
    The harm, if any in reality, was done to your sensitivities.
    Blasphemy is in the heart of the beholder.
    So is anger.

    I saw the caricatures.
    It shows that some people who claim they don’t adopt hatred or they claim they love freedom, they are not truthful and they are instead, liars. Who claims to respect the other people’s opinions must not put himself in a corner of sarcasm, hatred and stupidest. I know the demark people better than this and they are well educated, may be I am wrong!

    I think all those protesters who had there photo in the English papers on the 7th feb, should listen to themselves and leave this country, if there is this mutch hatred fuelled in there brains then please do all us peace lovers a favour and go back to where you belong, you are no longer welcome here.
    I do not expect peolpe who come over here for a better life, to stand there and tell us to our faces, how they hate us, and it is these selfish muslims who are given the honest muslins the hard time.
    at the end of the day it was only a cartoon, you can take it or leave it but not start terror tactics because you were offended, ( or should I seek retribution on all of those that offend me, what a sad world that would be).
