  • Danish Hazrat Muhammad(PBUH) cartoon reprinted

    Danish newspapers have reprinted one of several caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad which sparked violent protests across the Muslim world two years ago.
    They say they wanted to show their commitment to freedom of speech after an alleged plot to kill one of the cartoonists behind the drawings.

    Three suspects were held in Denmark on Tuesday "to prevent a murder linked to terrorism", officials said.

    The cartoons were originally published by Jyllands-Posten in September 2005.

    Danish embassies were attacked around the world and dozens died in riots that followed.

    'Defiant'

    Jyllands-Posten and many other major newspapers - including Politiken and Berlingske Tidende - reprinted the caricature in their Wednesday editions.

    The cartoon depicts Muhammad wearing a turban shaped like a bomb with a lit fuse.

    The editors say no-one should feel their life is threatened because of a drawing.

    "We are doing this to document what is at stake in this case, and to unambiguously back and support the freedom of speech that we as a newspaper will always defend," Berlingske Tidende said.

    The cartoon was also broadcast on national television, and even newspapers that were originally against the publication of the caricatures are now backing the campaign to defend freedom of speech, the BBC's Thomas Buch-Andersen in Copenhagen says.

    One Danish tabloid published all 12 drawings, the Associated Press news agency reported.
