“Portraying prophet from Persian art to South Park”

An interesting article from the The Times Online:
"Portraying prophet from Persian art to South Park"

While I am not particularly interested in seeing the Prophet (peace be upon him) depicted at all, I do not agree that it should be strictly forbidden.  To the extent there is a prohibition–and this can be debated–it is ultimately a matter of personal conscience.

As offensive and distasteful as I find them on a personal level, my grievance against Jyllands-Posten‘s cartoons is their political message, not the fact that they ignore the traditional Islamic ban.  I don’t expect non-Muslims to observe Shariah.

[See all my posts re: the Danish cartoons on a single, long page.]
