Fight Islamic Pressure To Censor Wikipedia

This petition is in response to a call for censorship on Wikipedia by the Muslim community here. They claim that any depiction of the Prophet Mohammed is blasphemy and therefor forbidden.

While Muslims are entitled to their beliefs, they cannot impose them on people of different faiths. They themselves are required to respect the beliefs and practices of others whether they be religious or not.

This is not so much about religion as it is the reporting of historical events and people. The Prophet Mohammed was a important figure in history like so many others. While Muslims may perceive him as a prophet not to be depicted in portraits, that is only a belief and not fact. For many of us he is just a historical figure and is therefore afforded no special privileges.

The images in question can be seen here:
