Muslims or newspaper editors offended by Opus?
(Click on Image to enlarge)
The comic strip “Opus” for August 26 has been withheld from publication by many newspapers for being offensive to Muslims.
I am offended by the shear arrogance of the editors.
How can they decide what will offend Muslims? Do they have a Muslim sensitivity meter? I see nothing offensive about the cartoon.

In addition, if a cartoon offends a Muslims reader you really need to refocus. Your chosen religion has many things to embarrass it and almost all of them conducted by other Muslims. A little self-reflection would do you all some good.Explore posts in the same categories: Bad Journalism, censorship, dhimmitude, Political Cartoons
