The situation on the cartoon issue is going way out of hand...... I think the Islamic community is reacting in a very unreasonable manner. I don’t know if the rumours are true....but I think a prize money of Rs.51 crore has been announced to whoever kills the cartoon artist.....Why can’t the government focus on more constructive matters ???? The progress in states like UP is so sluggish that sometimes I wonder where they get so much energy from when they’re burning effigies and staging unnecessary protests.
No one even complained when cartoons of Lord Buddha were released. Islam in no way advocates violence to prove a point. However, by protesting in such a violent manner, the Islamic community is only proving their lack of tolerance and narrow-mindedness. The cartoons should have been taken in a light vein. The western world is already prejudiced against the Islamic community since 9/11. Such extreme reactions now only reinforce this kind of prejudice, not just by the west but also by other communities worldwide. Please put a stop to all the madness and focus all that energy into more meaningful activities.
