Religious icons in the media: Where to draw the line?
The recent re-publication of the controversial cartoons of Prophet Muhammad first published in Danish newspapers in early 2006 has again struck a raw nerve, reigniting the debate over where to draw the line on press freedoms when news is deemed “defamatory.”
Do you agree with the newspapers’ decision to republish the cartoons in the name of press freedom? Or do you believe that press freedom should be halted when it comes to the issue of sacred beliefs?
