The caricature battle began when the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published in 2005 caricature drawings of the Prophet Muhammad. During 2006 serious acts of violence took place in several parts of the world, in response to the publication of the cartoons. It was the first time something that had been published in a national, Nordic newspaper had global consequences of such strength. The caricatures also became the beginning of an annual debate on the issues of freedom of expression versus religious sensitivity and the limits of freedom of expression also in Norwegian law.
I sent this mail to Vebjørn Selbekk, where he denies what is open in the day.
