What if i drew your father`s picture with an image i created in my mind when i never saw him,and put put his name under that portrait??.....What if was a great offence in your religion to make a picture or image of you prophet or god whom you never met, and you see people from other religion making weird funny and sometimes disgusting pictures of them ( i mean God and of any of the prophets)...Well,Muhammad (pbuh) is one,but as for me its an offence seeing people making very strange images and statues of Jesus(pbuh), and in each church you see a diffrent one..sometimes off limits and very disgusting ...and sometimes even revealing the private parts....May be for christians its not an offence seeing all this,well, for muslims it is... Rather than making his statues and pictures...well, just tryn follow his very examples, and that will definitely be an image that wud be remembered.....As for pictures they will for sure fade away ..

Well, in short, making the picture of any Prophet ( which are more than 124,000 in count), whether you look at them at the son of god...or any other....is a complete OFFENCE .... Just like me judging the Looks of your mom and any one that you respect without even having met them..!!
So please please people from which ever religion...and even muslims who try to makecreate and draw images of GOD or any prophets(PBUT) !!....Your are offencing some people in this world.... and if your stop offencing, and start respecting, may be you`ll earn some respect also.... But,1st an advice, start by avoidin teh making of strange images of your own God and son of God....instead folow their tract, you will not be only respecting yourself, you wll also be respecting us....

As for the bombing bit..LOL..that was a lil bit little...If i had offenced america by the least, another country like iraq would have been vanished..as if in the name of peace...well..an embassy is far less than a whole country...And just like americans and others always have a good reason behind everyfing they do,well muslims have it also...but they just dont get the mean do deliver it to the world...unless they were the world`s SUPERPOWER, it would have been otherwise....

Submitting....
