First Denmark And Now This!
*Â STOP mocking our prophet, you filthy kufar’s! Didn’t you learn anything from the Danish cartoon riots just over a year ago?
The Swedish newspaper that published artist Lars Vilks’ sketches of Mohammed is refusing to apologize to the world’s 39.7 gazillion seething Muslims.
From MPACUK: A year on from the Danish Cartoon row another Nordic newspaper has published cartoons insulting the Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon Him. This time the culprit is Sweden’s Nerikes Allehanda newspaper which has published a cartoon depicting the face of the Prophet on the body of a dog!
This is a disturbing development as it comes just 1 year after the Danish cartoon row and signals a rising trend in Islamophobia on the Continent.
Printing content like this achieves nothing positive, instead it results in the further isolation of Muslims and plays into the hands of extremists who will use this is as propaganda and poison impressionable young minds.
Freedom of expression must go hand in hand with the duty to act responsibly. What about the right of people to live in peace with their neighbours, is this not a democratic right that we must also protect and uphold?
* Interesting that the adherents of the worlds most oppressive, bloody and totalitarian belief-system would have us believe that we have “democratic rights to uphold and to protect…”
By publishing this cartoon both the artist and newspaper have shown recklessness as their actions will create further mistrust, suspicion and hatred between communities. Do we allow such “expressions of freedom” even if they incite hatred?
We urge you to take action but in a non-violent and peaceful way and register your protest with the Swedish Embassy in London.
