Freedom of Speech

In September 2005, Denmark’s largest newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, published under the headline “The face of Muhammad” (or “Mohammed’s ansigt” in Deutsch) a number of cartoons depicting the Prophet of Islam in less than flattering way. These included a cartoon showing the Prophet Muhammad wearing a turban in the shape of a smoking bomb, another with Muhammad on a cloud in heaven telling an approaching line of suicide bombers that he had run out of virgins with which to reward them, and a third depicting the prophet grinning wildly, with a knife in his hand and flanked by heavily-veiled women. The publisher of those cartoons claimed the right to do so, based on the freedom-of-speech principle. Muslims—in Islamic as well as non-Islamic countries—however, disagreed and found those cartoons not only demeaning but also offensive to them.
