Where’s Mohammed? Another case of pre-emptive self-censorship
The Daily Cartoonist reports that a popular Sunday cartoon strip has been spiked by several newspapers because it mentions Muhammad.
Wiley Miller’s frequently brilliant Non Sequitur depicts a park scene with the caption, Picture book title voted least likely to ever find a publisher… ‘Where’s Muhammad?’
This was enough to put the fear of fatwa into ‘upwards of 20’ newspaper editors, who have asked for a replacement. Mr Miller notes
the irony of editors being afraid to run even such a tame cartoon as this that satirizes the blinding fear in media regarding anything surrounding Islam sadly speaks for itself. Indeed, the terrorists have won.
I think that’s him standing behind the little girl at the ice-cream stand.
