KBOO Radio: Art or Racism? CAIR-Chicago on Danish Comic Reprinting
The Chicago Chapter of a prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today announced that it will hold a local press conference this Saturday to announce a major educational effort called “Explore the Life of Muhammad” as a positive response to the worldwide controversy over caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.
The promises of the first amendment are a critical foundation to our great nation. However, free speech is not a license for irresponsible journalism. While the Daily Illini’s reprinting of the Danish Cartoons within its February 9th editorial section may not have violated our laws, the decision did violate human decency.
On Tuesday, February 14, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will hold a noon news conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to launch a major educational effort focusing on the life and legacy of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.
On Sunday, February 5, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will hold a news conference in Washington, D.C., to express the U.S. Muslim community’s rejection of violence in response to the defamatory caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published in European newspapers.
Representatives of the American Muslim community met with the Danish ambassador in Washington, D.C., on Monday to discuss their concerns about defamatory caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad originally published in Denmark.
