Prothom Alo Cartoon

Bangladesh is tagged as a “moderate” Muslim country, but how long can it hold this image? Even today the country witnessed rampages by Muslim fundamentalists in Dhaka. Anyone with a minimal IQ and sense of humour will laugh at the cartoon published on 17th September issue of Prothom Alo‘s supplement magazine Alpin, but the twisted minded fundamentalists has turned it upside down.

The cartoon depicts a conversation between a little boy with a cat on his lap and an elderly cleric:

Elderly cleric:  Hey kid, what’s your name?
Little boy:  My name is Babu
Elderly cleric:  You’re supposed to say Mohammad before a name. What’s your father’s name?
Little boy:  Mohammad Abu
Elderly cleric:  So what’s that on your lap?
Little boy:  Mohammad cat

The cleric teaches the boy to use “Mohammad” before a name and like any kid he follows it and says “Mohammad” before saying “cat”. A person with minimal IQ will laugh at the “mistake” the boy makes, but the Saudi sponsored evil fundamentalists relate it to “insulting” Prophet Mohammad and compares it with the infamous Danish cartoon series.

Here’s a scanned copy of that cartoon, judge it yourself how this had “insulted” Islam and Prophet Muhammad:

The interim government has already lost popularity, and the way they handled the situation by arresting the cartoonist has made it worse. The only good side of the arrest is that the cartoonist is in a safe place now. The fundamentalists would have tear him apart if they could find him somewhere. So called followers of a religion which means “peace”!

  1. This is not anti-islamic cartoon. Muhammad cat is anything but offensive. Muhammad Abu-Huraira means the same. Muhammad Jamal means Muhammad Camel.

  2. Kill the kafirs. Is here no Muhammad ibn Musalam within us? Who will defend the honor of Rasool {Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam} by killing the Infidels?

    Shame on Bangladesh,shame on Bangladeshi Muslims !

    S

  3. ANY ONE(WHO IS MUSLIMS) WHO THINKS THIS IS SIMPLY A CARTOON, THEN I WOULD SAY, WE ALL ARE "CAT" BEING A MUSLIM, AREN'T WE? IT'S UNDOUBTEDLY THE INSULTING THE MUSLIMS. I AM REALLY HAPPY THAT THAT MAGAZINE HAS BEEN BANNED. WE SHOULD MENTIONED, ISLAM HAS ITS OWN RULES AND THERE IS NO SCOPE TO COMPARE IT WITH ANY OTHER RELIGION. SO, PLEASE DO NOT COMPARE IT WITH OTHER RELIGION.

    ASIDE TO: WHO ARE SAYING, ITS 2009 OR 2000 YEARS LATER, THEY ARE ONLY BLIND WITH TEMPTATION, OPPORTUNIST AND THOSE SO CALLED MODERN PEOPLE SHOULD SAY WITH THERE BELIEF AND ITS ALSO WORTH NOTING THAT THEY SHOULD READ MORE ABOUT "ISLAM" BEFORE MAKING ANY STUPID COMMENTS ON IT.

    MAY ALMIGHTY RICHLY BLESS THOSE "MODERNIST"…

  4. This carton was opended the real face of prothom alo…..(they are always tried to creat a 'hungama'..& try to continue this….

  5. Everyone knows why we use Mohammad before our name. The Sahaba (true followers of Islam) who don't tolerate the insult against our prophet. But i don't know whether this happens for (Jesus) Christian people. People should not draw cartoon or comment on our prophet who don't have any knowledge of Islam. True muslims care for the Prophet.

  6. The demostration in bangladesh was’t a fundamentalism, it was da true love 2 our Bloved prophet.
    It could b a funny cartoon if it didn’t mention da name of our prophet.
    One question:
    What Christian people will do if someone draw such cartoon with the name of jesus.
    My comment: they wouldn’t like it anyway.

  7. It’s just a cartoon. I don’t see anything against any particular religion. People should have some humor. We are living in 20th century.

  8. I believe that cartoonist never thought of such kind of situation ever. And my question is to those protesters is that, how does your protest increase/decrease the image of Prophet (sm.) or Islam?

    Thanks god that the cartoonist was caught by POLICE before he got caught by some crazy people.
