Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: This is just a cartoon

Submitted by Aya (Greece), Feb 8, 2006 at 16:23

I'm a muslim and I absolutely agree with you. Burning forgeign buildings is not a proper thing to do. But Muslims around the world got very upset about the cartoons. Those cartoons were very harsh on muslims. Danish people made fun of muslim's highest symbol in life. That was very very irrespectful. Very harsh and rude. People should learn to respect each other.

Some people are stating that muslims never respect others, that is very untrue. Muslims respect others. In islam, muslims are asked to respect every other religion. They believe in other religions. They believe in Jesus. Danish people made fun of muslim's prophet Mohammed. They made fun of islam. Muslims can never make fun of other religions. Because they respect and believe in them. What muslims can do is have freedom of choice. They can stop buying products from Denmark. And no one has any right to stop them. Denmark called what they did "freedom of expression".. and Muslims call what they are doing "freedom of choice.
