Cartoon Rage II: They’re Back, and They’re Even Madder, is gathering steam.
“Indignant Afghanistan slams Prophet Mohammad sketch,” by Sayed Salahuddin for Reuters (thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist):
KABUL (Reuters) – Afghanistan on Saturday condemned the printing of a sketch of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad with the body of a dog in a Swedish newspaper, calling it hostile towards the Muslim world.
The sketch has also drawn condemnation from neighbouring Pakistan, which condemned the sketch as blasphemous. Muslims believe images of the Prophet are forbidden and also consider dogs to be impure.
“Our Holy Prophet’s cartoon in a Swedish paper has provoked all Afghans,” wrote The Kabul Times on Saturday, publishing a statement by religious scholars, imams and the Ministry of Islamic Guidance.
“The sold-out enemies of Islam draw the cartoon of the respected Prophet of Islam once more. This has disturbed the Islamic world and aroused the indignation of all Muslims,” the statement said, demanding those responsible be handed over to a court for prosecution and punishment.
In other words, they are demanding that Europe adopt Sharia law, at least in this particular.
