Recent publication of blashpemous cartoon in a Danish newspaper has sparked a new wave of controversy, violence and protest among the muslim world.

Goverment of Pakistan also summoned Danish ambassador in foreign office and protested strongly over the publication. Pakistan is also considering ban on import of medicines from all those countries which are republishing the controversial cartoons.

Danish goverment has officially apologized to the muslim world, however, they have justified the publishing of blasphemous cartoon by calling it freedom of expression.

1. Iran has called for an OIC (Organization of Islamic Countries) meeting. What should be the collective reaction of muslim world ?

2. Do you think publishing sensitive cartoons hurting religious sentiments of millions is healthy for the culture of Inter-faith Harmony?

3. Should freedom of expression be regulated by moral values?
