Zapiro and the Prophet

Cartoonist Zapiro's depiction of the Prophet Muhammad on May 21 2010 landed him and the M&G in hot water.


From very early last Friday, the protests began rolling in. At the time of writing, my inbox alone has 79 complaints.

See cartoonist Zapiro response to the offence caused by his depiction of the Prophet Muhammad in a new cartoon, published in the M&G.

I have been asked repeatedly over the past week "Why did you do it? Why run a cartoon that you knew would cause such profound anger?

Bigotry is again riding rampant in reaction to last week's Zapiro cartoon in the Mail & Guardian, argues political analyst Terry Bell.

The M&G will refrain from publishing any images of the Prophet Muhammad while reviewing its editorial policy on religious matters.
