Rezwan writes about the Muhammad cartoon from Bangladesh:
Alpin is one satirical cartoon supplement of the Daily Prothom Alo, which claims to be the most popular Bangla Newspaper in Bangladesh. In the 6th page of its 431th issue a cartoon titled ‘name' was published (on Monday, September 17, 2007) which created much controversy in Bangladesh.
He notes the apology by the newspaper:
We apologize and are extremely sorry:
…inadvertently an unedited, unapproved and unacceptable cartoon titled ‘name' was published…we are withdrawing the cartoon…and taking actions against the persons responsible for this.
Muhammad and Islam are outside the bounds of criticism and satire -- even when they are not the intended target of such sport. The wretched apology is a perfect example of this suffocating atmosphere in the Islamic world.
