I read about the incident that took place in paris which was not to happen as it did. It was a very sorrowful incident for Paris but in my opinion what the pulishers and the cartoonist did was also not right, they insulted an other religion and in my opinion thats not right one should respect every religion no mattter if its an organisation or company.
I know questions would rise up for freedom of speech but one should also make sure you are not insulting someone's feeling. And knowing the fact that it is forbidden in Islam to draw scriptures one should not do that. Yes you have the right to question and ask for a reason but drawing animations of a Prophet is not correct, not only in Islam but in genral and specially if someone informs you that they don't like it and they would attack if they won't stop.
Lets take this the other way.. if u were a christian and someone insulted Jesus by drawing cartoons and the stuff the cartoonist did would you like it? or if u belonged to any other religion would you like it and get at least feel a little anger rise inside you?
I see the point that people should have freedom of speech but they should also have enough knowledge to raise a question or sth how could you do sth without having knowledge about that subject , and i bet the journalist must be knowing about islamic principles (the basics even) and drawing animations is strictly untorelable by muslims, they could have asked questions and might expect an answer but drawing and insulting other religions is not what I support!
My intention is not to hurt any beings feelings so please don't get offended!
Freedom of speech is the right of everyone but one should keep in mind some things even....
