Muslims Enraged, Seething at Wikipedia

• Views: 3,341

Apparently there are a whole lot of Muslims enraged and offended at Wikipedia, because there are … gaspdrawings and images of Mohammed in his Wikipedia entry.

Blasphemy!

So they’re demanding that Wikipedia stop violating their delicate sensibilities and remove the offending images, with an online petition that’s already gathered 82,783 signatures: Care2 : The Petition Site : Removal of the Pics.

The petition has a little “lolcats” flavor to it.

Removal of the Pics of Muhammad from Wikipedia
Target:To tell wikipedia editors to respect other peoples religion
Sponsored by: Faraz Ahmad

In Islam pictures or Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and other holly figures are not allowed, but on wikipedia they has published some pictures that are showing not only a body with white face but an image that has a complete face.. that is even not allowed by SHITAT fact of Islam.
i request all my brothers and sisters to sign this petition so we can tell wikipedia to remove them.

UPDATE at 2/4/08 11:32:39 am:

Good for Wikipedia on this one: Talk: Muhammad.

Please note that discussion on this talk page has determined that pictures of Muhammad will not be removed from this article and any removal of the pictures without discussion here first will be reverted on sight.

That makes them braver than 95% of the world’s media organizations.
