Here we go again with the cartoons...

Let's hope they don't give into this ridiculous pressure...
MUSLIMS in Cambridge have demanded a public apology from a student who printed anti-Islamic material in a magazine.

The material included a cartoon depicting the prophet Mohammed which sparked worldwide outrage last year when it was published in Denmark. It is thought this is the first time the cartoon has appeared in a publication in England.

Asim Mumtaz, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, said: "I'm horrified and shocked. In such a seat of learning, I am horrified that things could stoop to this level.

"I'm actually shocked that intelligent people know how offensive this cartoon is and that they have decided to reprint it in such a horrible manner. It's disgusting."

The cartoon was reprinted in Clare College's student magazine in a special edition on religious satire. The 19-year-old student who printed the cartoon has since gone into hiding and the college has called a rare Court of Discipline to decide how the student should be brought to account.

Mr Mumtaz, a former Cambridge University student himself, is now demanding that everyone involved with the publication of the cartoon should make a public apology.

A new age of freedomless speech is upon us. We'd best watch ourselves.

The University of Saskatoon ran a cartoon with Jesus having sexual relations with a pig. No big stir with that... but to print a representation of Muhammad is just too offensive and insulting.

Our best course of action would be to agree with them. Lets go one step further and say anything to do with Muhammad or Islam is too offensive to be printed.
