Huh. Neat.I'm very briefly hiding in the back of this video.
I'm of the opinion that "Draw Mohammad Day" would be interesting if it meant that people drew flattering pictures of the Prophet, depicting him doing admirable things, accurate to Islamic teachings, showing why there are in fact people who like him.
Being a devil's advocate here, I would imagine that being the point for someone who wants to cast Muslims in a bad light. Saying "isn't it silly that they got upset when I drew a horrible caricature of their Prophet doing awful things?" isn't much of an argument, but "isn't it silly that they got upset when I drew a nice respectful picture of their Prophet doing nice things?" could get some traction, since "don't draw any people, nicely or otherwise" is one of the things that is interesting and unique about Islam in particular, as far as I know. However, that might be something of a Catch-22 situation, because if someone hates Islam that much, they would probably be unwilling to draw a respectful picture of Mohammad. There would have to be a perfect storm of someone being a really talented artist, being well read about the Islamic faith including its positive aspects, and still somehow being deeply Islamophobic.The difficulty with that is that many groups of Muslims forbid making any images of living beings, especially humans, so that millions of Muslims around the world would view even a kindly-meant image of Muhammad as insulting.
Best song to drink tea to.Also, today is International Tea Day! Why not celebrate with a cuppa? I’ve already had two large mugs so far!
