Should newspapers or individuals publish images of Muhammad?
Background and context
For years, significant debate has surrounding the publishing of images of Muhammad, usually by major newspapers. The controversy took a particularly global turn in 2005, when Jyllands-Posten, a Dutch newspaper, published inflammatory cartoons of Muhammad. (See Wikipedia: Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy and Debate: Muhammad cartoons controversy). In this case, thousands of Muslims protested around the world, and launched a number of riots. Subsequently, the issue has continued to raise significant attention and debate, balancing both questions of free speech and religious tolerance and respect.
