Danish minister displays cartoons of prophets carrying bombs on Facebook
Agen Dunia – Denmark Immigration Minister Inger Stojberg, 44, displayed a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad carrying a bomb in his turban on the Facebook page.
Stojberg showed the image on his iPad as a response to the decision of the Skovgaard Museum in Viborg, Denmark, which refused to display a cartoon image of the prophet in an exhibition about blasphemy, as reported by the Daily Sabah page on Tuesday (26/9/2017).
“It’s a museum decision and they deserve to do that but I think it’s a shame,” Stojberg said on his Facebook page.
In the picture was a bearded man with a bomb in his turban and a bomb explosive device.
Stojberg reasoned the image he showed in the background of his iPod page to remind Denmark is a country that values freedom of expression, including the right to criticize religion.
“To be honest, I think we should be proud of Muhammad’s cartoons,” Stojberg said.
The woman’s minister apparently is not just this time making controversy. Last year he proposed a ‘jewelry law’ that asked immigrants and refugees to hand over cash and jewelry as their expenses while in Denmark.
In 2007 a number of Danish embassies were attacked and at least 50 people were killed in unrest in the Middle East, Africa and Asia after cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad appeared in the Jyllands-Posten newspaper in 2006. The prophet cartoon was made by Swedish artist Lars Vilks.
The image Stojberg shows is one of the images that have appeared in Jyllands-Posten.
