Sacred : Cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) & Free speech by Pamela Geller

Sacred : Cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) & Free speech by Pamela Geller

A few paragraphs;

Islam is not going anywhere; prophet is not going anywhere, and by opening ourselves up to criticism, we will learn a lot more about our faith than we would ever know. We need to move away from intolerance to acceptance of a different point of view without having to agree with it. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) lived through it and Muslims can learn from his examples.

Poking fun at the religious figures is nothing new. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has been the object of criticism from the very beginning; the people who did not like his mission had made attempts to kill him, and so was Jesus who was actually crucified. The People like Gandhi, MLK, Rabin and a host of other peacemakers were shot dead as well.

I urge fellow Muslims to be open to all the criticism with confidence, don't shut it, and let freedom of speech remain the corner stone of Islam. Islam stands on its own; it does not need our defense, and it is silly to protect God or the Prophet, they are not weaklings or our property to protect, they belong to the whole universe, don't they?
