The Global Program for Introducing the Prophet of Mercy (peace be upon him) condemns the return of the offensive caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
He insists that such an action was a deliberate provocation. The united effort of these newspapers in ‘redeploying’ abusive caricatures in one day, thereby profaning the status of the Prophets, especially that of the seal of the Prophets, Muhammad (peace be upon him) deserves condemnation. Such an action threatens the coexistence of cultures, religions and peoples.
He called for the responsible and those with sensibility in Denmark and the EU to affirm a clear position in condemning such malevolence, as well as the repeated disregard and deliberate abuse, poor sense of responsibility that has characterised those newspapers.
He was surprised at the link between signs of those individuals who are said to be plotting to kill one of the artists who drew the caricatures and those that have deliberately insulted the feelings of an entire Islamic nation in that which it considers sacred.
The Secretary-General advises his Muslim brothers in Denmark to observe proper Islamic behaviour in denying legitimacy of this heinous act. He encourages restraint and advises the Muslim community to refrain from opening up an opportunity for those who want to divide them.
The Secretary-General appealed to the Muslim world to continue in their efforts to support the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and explained that the greatest forms in which one may support their Prophet (peace be upon him) is by emulating his character in speech and action. He concluded by calling for a renewal of effort in a systemised and organised form, and to make use of media and modern technology to show the world the truth regarding the Last Prophet (peace be upon him) of whom Allah said: “We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures.” [Surat Al-Anbiyaa: 107]
