Danish Cartoons

Letter to the New York Times published on February 8, 2006.

As a Muslim, what I know about the life and character of Prophet Muhammad, I am sure he himself would not have been angered by the Danish cartoons, nor would he have asked his followers to go on a rampage in protest. He was kind, gentle, forgiving and generous to a fault.

Unfortunately, some Muslims do not emulate any of those characteristics and yet profess abiding love and affection for him. By burning embassies and threatening to kill People the demonstrators have done more damage to the name of the Prophet today than the Danish cartoons.
