MUIS Should Publicly Criticise Offensive Charlie Hebdo Cartoons And The Need For Responsible Freedom Of Speech

MUIS and our Mufti should make a public statement on the Paris shootings.

They could distance themselves from whomever were responsible for the ‘acts of terrorism.’

At the same time, it is a golden opportunity to handle the issue of disparaging our Beloved Rasulullah SAW by distancing themselves from the offensive and despicable cartoons.

And it would be exactly in line with the government stand. Freedom of speech is not absolute. It does NOT extend to freedom to offend any religion.

A press statement as well as an FB posting on the official MUIS site would be very much appreciated.

The ball is in MUIS’ court. We hope they would sieze this golden opportunity and strike while the hammer is hot.
