Reprinting of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad

Hypocrisy of the West and its media is not a secret. The Western hypocrisy becomes too obvious when Muslims are involved. Danish newspapers have reprinted the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to show their so called commitment to freedom of speech.

However the Western hypocrites are silent on the prosecution of two Spanish cartoonists. These cartoonists were found guilty of offending the Spanish royal family. Their cartoons depicted Crown Prince Felipe and his wife Letizia having sex. The weekly satirical magazine El Jueves was pulled by the police from the newsstands.

The Prophet Muhammad is loved and revered by hundreds of millions of Muslims and non-Muslims around the world. But, the Western hypocrites believe that the Spanish royal family is more respectful than the Prophet Muhammad. If this is not the case then the Spanish Government would have pulled the newspapers which published the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad like it did in case of the Spanish royal family.

Anyone, even with little intellect knows that the Prophet Muhammad and other religious figures are more revered than the self imposed Spanish dictators. This is not a religious issue. It is a matter of showing respect for religious and non-religious philosophers. But when the Western hypocrites will realize this?
