And for something totally ridiculous , a doctor has been arrested in Pakistan for throwing away a business card because it belonged to a man who had the same name as the prophet Muhammad. That’s a violation of the blasphemy laws right there! The incident happened when a pharmaceutical company representative named Muhammad Faizan saw Dr Naushad Valiyani (a fellow Muslim) throw away his card after he had handed it to him. So the asshole went and dobbed the doc in to police, noting his name was the same as the prophet’s.

In a response to the recent threats by extremists over a South Park episode, Seattle artist Molly Norris created a poster which deemed 20th of May the first annual “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day”. The poster included all sorts of objects like a box of pasta and a cup of coffee all claiming to be in the likeness of Muhammad. Sheez, did no one tell her Islamic teachings forbid showing images of Muhammad. Holy fatwa lady. Anywho, the friggin thing wouldn’t have gone viral had it not been for the cartoonist herself. When quizzed about why the hell she sent the cartoon to media outlets her response was “Because I’m an idiot.” Hmm, guess you shouldn’t have plastered your name all over it either. Now she is running with Rushdie. As for the dude who set up a Facebook site dedicated to the day, he’s disappeared faster than Obama’s birth certificate!
