"The head of a Swedish newspaper has received death threats after publishing a drawing of the devil defecating on Jesus." I read this in March 12, 2008 in 7DAYS, taken from the Correspondent. Therefore, not only Prophet Muhammad was a target of caricaturists but so was Jesus.
Has anyone in our beloved Muslim world gone on demonstrations and shown rage towards the cartoons which aim to attack Jesus? So far, none has shown any sign of anger towards the cartoon. If there are any, the number is too insignificant to be reported by any media source. On the other hand, there has been chaos in the Muslim world over the cartoons mocking Prophet Muhammad.
Go on, rage, burn flags, destroy everything, kill everyone and bomb the whole world. Look at the cartoons attacking your Prophet and hang the ones who did it. Not only the ones who did it, but those who live with them. No, no, no! Boycott
Have you heard these comments before? May be not that intensely, but I am sure you have heard something similar that aims to stimulate such feelings in Muslim youths. We are being manipulated. Have you noticed to what extent we are being manipulated? We have to support our Prophet, but not in this way. I have been receiving emails mocking the artist who drew the cartoons and making him look like a pig, but what for? Is the Prophet supported by burning flags and attacking embassies? This is not the way to support your Prophet and prove that his message is a message of peace and harmony
The cartoons are not a war against Islam as many might think. Like the cartoons attacking Jesus, they are attacking religiosity in general. Let’s leave this aside and agree that there is an attack on Islam. What is the context for this attack? Have we not shown hostility towards others in the world? Al-Qaeda which claims that it supports the Islamic mission is behind a large portion of destruction, deaths and chaos. The wrong interpretation of Jihad and the emergence of new Jihadist groups have made Islam a religion of violence and death. There has to be something done in order to stop any more destruction. The first thing that has to be done is to be rational and pose for thought before taking any action. Then we have to think about the problems in our Muslim and Eastern world. We need to end dictatorship, poverty, unemployment and so on. The list is endless but we tend to forget our inner problems and go to the outside world to correct the problems of others.
Analyze the situation before taking any action and do not let anger gain control over you. Your Prophet does not need violence and hostility to support his mission of Islam. In stead, he needs peaceful people who propagate his message to the whole world in a peaceful way and without forcing anyone. Therefore, you can show your anger towards the cartoons in a more rational way and remember that Jesus is being mocked as well.
