Progressive Muslims announce Mo-toon comp
It’s not exactly up there with boomka’s anti-semitic cartoon contest in the humorously self-deprecating stakes, but it’s a start. The reformist Muslims at 19.org have announced a “Competition to Use Visual Media to Reflect the Truth about Muhammad and Quranic Islam” as a gesture of support for the principle of freedom of expression.
We are announcing an award for a cartoon/portrait of Muhammad that would depict him accurately as a human being and a messenger of peace and progress. We will publish the winning portrait at www.19.org and in our upcoming “The Quran: A Reformist Translation.”
