Danish Newspapers reprint Prophet Mohammad cartoon in revenge
Expressing fury against the three accused caught in the allegation of plotting murder to Kurt Westergaard, a cartoonist who illustrated the controversial cartoon of Muslims’ top prophet Hazrat Mohammad two days before, as much as 17 including three leading Danish newspapers have again published another controversial picture on Wednesday.
Jyllands-Posten, which initially published the notorious sketch of prophet Mohammad on September 2005 besides two other national leading papers Politiken and Berlingske Tidende have published a cartoon of prophet Mohammad wearing turban shaped like a bomb with a lit fuse on yesterday’s edition to protest their rights of ‘freedom of expression’.
At least 14 more newspapers, as per report have also published this ‘objectionable’ picture in their editions. Besides this, the picture was also broadcast in national television, and on the net to defend media’s right.
At least 17 Danish newspapers published a cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad wearing a bomb as a turban, a day after the arrest of three men accused of plotting to kill the man who drew the cartoon.
“With this drawing I wanted to show how fanatical Islamists or terrorists use religion as a kind of spiritual weapon” said the alleged caricature Kurt Westergaard in the online version of Jyllands-Posten. Wastergaard is one among the twelve cartoonists, whose caricature was published in Jyllands-Posten that became the reason of protest and violence across the globe. Later other Danish newspapers and western media had published it and nearby 50 people across the globe were died in the riots and violence.
Explaining about reprinting another sketch, Westergaard writes, “I have turned fear into anger and resentment”.
On the other hand, the Muslims in the nation have expressed their anger by burning the published edition of all the newspapers. The condition of the country is still but tense.
Several Muslim organisations and top Muslim representatives have condemned this reprinting act. However, some of them have also criticised the killing conspiracy of the cartoonists.
In the neighbouring country, the flame of fury is bursting and they are asking to ‘punish’ all those ‘culprits’ involved in this case. Iran, a gulf Muslim country has registered its protest in the Danish embassy to not to reprint the drawing of prophet and not to hurt the 1.5 billions of world Muslims.
Before this, the Danish security agencies have detained three persons in the contention of conspiring the murder plot of the accused cartoonist Westergaard on February 12. One of them belongs to Danish while rest of two was Tunisian. Police has left Dane detainee after interrogation while other two are still under scanner.
