i think we all heard about the drawing of the prophet muhhammad with a turban carrying a bomb that was published in many danish newspapers and in other european countries that has caused an outrage in the islamic world. Muslims have also demanded that the european paper give an apology to the Islamic world.  They paper apologised for offending people but said that it does not apologise for printing it. In muslim religion it is very offending if you draw any picture of muhhammad, especially if u show him as a terrorist (which i thought was very wrong)

So what do u think? was the paper right on not apologising for printing that cartoon, or were they wrong? and should the islamic world react with outrage or shouldnt it?

I personally think that the paper should apologise.

I just read this in the BBC. Pasting an excerpt from the article http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4672642.stm "The paper had apologised a day earlier for causing offence to Muslims, although it maintained it was legal under Danish law to print them. Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen welcomed the paper's apology, but has rejected calls to punish the paper, saying the government cannot censor the press."

However, I do agree that such a cartoon is nothing short of offensive. Freedom of expression is all well and good, but there should be some limitations.

Its 100% offensive and disrespectfull . Freedom of expression / speach is great , but this goes beyond that !!

I was reminded of that novel i once mentioned in this section it had a Hindu God Shiv ji wearing sunglasses and looking foolish . Although that was disresptfull , but this picture with the Prohpet Muhammad holding a bomb is sick .

that cartoon of prophet muhammed (pbuh) was highly offensive. the fact that the paper is not apologising for printing that cartoon makes it even more insulting. they should learn that freedom of speech doesn't give them the right to hurt the sentiments of a community.

i agree it is true that they have the freedom of press and that is all well and good but taht doesnt mean people should go around insulting others' faiths and beliefs and their religious figures. i am so against of what they depict on tv like cartoons of jesus and god and its horrendous. I really believe people need to respect each others religions even if they dont agree with them. this wasn't about freedom of press but about hurting people. I just feel that it was more about showing that "look we can do this and you cant stop us" than about freedom of press.
