Muhammad cartoon returns two years later


The Muhammad cartoon controversy is back. Denmark’s leading newspapers today reprinted the most offensive of the 12 cartoons that led to deadly rioting in the Muslim world two years ago. The sketch shows the Prophet Muhammad wearing a turban shaped like a bomb, the fuse lit. It was reprinted a day after three men were arrested for allegedly conspiring to murder the man who drew it.

We are doing this to document what is at stake in this case, and to unambiguously back and support the freedom of speech that we as a newspaper will always defend,” said the Copenhagen-based Berlingske Tidende.
