I will be waiting for an answer

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by Sarah (Sweden), Mar 10, 2006 at 19:05

Can anyone here answer a simple question of mine? What of the cartoonists and the newspaper that deliberately published offensive pictures of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)?

Why do we hear of no outrage within the Christian community? The Danish Imams were not intentionally being offensive (they were just asking for support) but the newspapers and journalists were. Freedom of expression for the press, but not for the Imams. Why??

Why are the non-violent Christians not speaking up against the newspaper that deliberately insulted the faith of one billion people? Nobody did, not even a single voice.
