Thanks Danish/American, I actually did not know anything about this Imam. Shall I tell you something? I hate these kind of illiterate imams or sellers of religion. When I was a child, my mother employed a stupid teacher to teach me religion. He used to teach me and my two small siblings all kind of weird things that were not in our religion. Even as a child I could understand that what he was teaching us was NOT true. He made me hate my religion for many, many years, until I became old enough to read books about religions. I am still learning many things that I did not know before.

About the Danish Imams, yes, I think they should be punished for provoking unrestness among followers of different faiths.If Denmark has laws against hate speech, strong punitive measures should be taken against these Imams. And of course, ALL MUSLIMS sould condemn their acts. However, I don't think the fake drawings reached our part of the world. So our governments do not know about this. The Danish authorities/media/representatives should let other Muslim countries know about their deeds- so that the government of these countries can condemn their dirty actions.

Islam, perhaps,is the most misunderstood religion in the world today. People who give Islam a bad name includes people like these Danish Imams. Its unfortunate that we have not been able to cut these cancerous cells off our body as yet. Islam does not support imposing religion on others. Not does it support killing of innocents. There's a film named 'The Message' (or 'Muhammad, the Messenger') which depicts how Muhammad preached Islam. This movie really helped me to understand the time and teachings of Muhammad (pbuh). I would request you to watch this movie if possible.

Thanks again.
