Bearing in mind the violence against cartoonists such as Georges Wolinski and others at Charlie Hebdo’s office in Paris earlier in the week, and because of the enormous outcry by millions around the world, Jay Smith decided to show six of the most controversial covers used to mock Muhammad and compare them to others which have been used to mock Jesus Christ. He then sought reactions from Muslims concerning whether these caricatures, which are offensive, should be censored, or whether the cartoonists should be killed.
