THE Malaysian government today requested the Swedish government to take action against three newspapers in the country for publishing and reprinting a caricature of Prophet Muhammad on Wednesday.
"Malaysia is concerned that such despicable acts disregard the sensitivity of the Muslim world in the name of freedom of expression.
"Such irresponsible acts are provocative and offensive in nature and hence, it is totally unacceptable," he said in a statement issued here.
Therefore, he urged the Swedish government to take measures against such publications to prevent the recurrence of such irresponsible acts in the future.
The caricature which depicted Prophet Muhammad's head on a dog's body was a creation of Swedish artist Lars Vilks, 63, and was submitted to be displayed as an exhibit at a Swedish cultural heritage centre.
However, it was rejected on security reasons.
However, a Swedish newpaper later printed the drawing with an editorial defending freedom of expression, which led to protests by Muslim countries and resulted in Vilks receiving numerous death threats.
On Wednesday, three Swedish newspapers reproduced the caricature. - Bernama
rad: Insulting others itself is a sign of stupidity. To response to the stupidity with a stupid act is a sign of immature minded & behavior too - my two cents opinion
The act of the most matured man :
It is reported that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had a Jewish neighbor who used to throw garbage (some said stone ) to him every time Prophet passing by the jewish's house. One day Prophet Muhammad found that he was not being thrown.
Prophet went to the jewish's house and asked about his news. When Prophet heard that the jewish was ill, Prophet Muhammad has paid him a visit.
At last the jewish has converted to Islam.
An example had shown by The Prophet Muhammad pbuh. If a muslim really facing his face to Islam, he should follow the way of Prophet Muhammad in facing or handling situation instead of following his own heart or his own logic.
