Muslim scholars condemn latest Charlie Hebdo prophet cartoon

Jan 14, 2015 - 9:21 PM

It is neither reasonable nor logical nor wise to publish drawings and films offensive or attacking the prophet of Islam the International Union of Muslim Scholars says in a lengthy statement

A Pakistani man reads a local edition of the International New York Times in Islamabad on January 14, 2015, which shows a blank section of a page that if printed, would report on the first issue of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo since a jihadist attack decimated its editorial staff last week. A statement at the bottom of the section reads "The article was removed by our publishing alliance in Pakistan. The International New York Times and its editorial staff had no role in its removal". The French satirical magazine published a picture of a weeping Mohammed under the title "All is forgiven", holding up a sign reading "Je suis Charlie" ("I am Charlie") in its first issue since many of its staff were killed in a gun attack last week in Paris.
