It's 'Draw Prophet Mohammed Day' in Toronto



-
'was recently sentenced to 9 months in jail for handing out a flyer that “vilified Muslims and disparages their religion,”
in the words of Ontario court Judge S. Ford Clements.'



Quote:
Anti-Islamist Eric Brazau has helped turn May 20 into "the Day for Drawing the Prophet Mohammed" in Toronto. The tradition began shortly after the Danish cartoon firestorm in 2005 – when a Danish newspaper published depictions of Mohammed that led to violent protests worldwide.

The person who initiated the Candian event, Molly Norris, had to go underground because of threats against her life, but Brazau is carrying on the tradition.


According to Shalom Toronto, the latest trouble was instigated by Brazau when he dressed up as a Muslim imam in downtown Toronto and encouraged passersby to draw Mohammed with the help of an easel, a canvas, some paint and paintbrushes.

Soon, he found himself surrounded by angry, shouting Muslims.


He showed his newly gathered audience various depictions of Mohammed, including one in which Mohammed is depicted as a baby whining that his feelings were hurt. In another, Mohammed's head is seen next to a package of pork, and in a third, he is drawn next to a little girl who is his wife.


Brazau eventually had to leave the spot when police insisted that he do so.


Brazau was recently sentenced to 9 months in jail for handing out a flyer that “vilified Muslims and disparages their religion,” in the words of Ontario court Judge S. Ford Clements. On another occasion, he acted the part of a Muslim man who beats his wife in accordance with sharia law.

The judge made a good call. I am Muslim, and certainly don't want anyone trying to draw the Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W) as Islam does not allow this. Furthermore, it shows how smart this guy is. Why would he go and place his drawing whom he claims to be the Prophet next to a package of pork. I'm sure alot of people are aware that pork is not permissible to consume in Islam, so clearly this guy is out to cause trouble.

And the beating of a woman in Islam is forbidden. He actually got of easy with a 9 month sentence.

^ we are supposed to have 'freedom of expression' in Canada. so whether he was wise to do what he did, 9 months in jail seems a tad Harsh, especially when one compares it to stuff like this:

Dad gets two months in jail for slap that killed daughter

A father will serve 60 days in jail for a slap that killed his teenage daughter.

Moussa Sidime, 74, says he just wanted to correct 13-year-old Noutene for doing a bad job of washing the kitchen floor

http://www.ottawasun.com/2014/05/21/...illed-daughter

and they also (as mentioned above) arrested a guy in the uk for quoting Churchill...........

I understand freedom of speech and all but some people definitely take it to the next level. He deserves what he got for being a troll

Are you serious? Do you honestly believe that anyone drawing pictures of Muhammad deserves 9 month in jail?

Should I be jailed as well? While I don't condone hate, implying the following is worthy of jail time shows how primitive your rational is. Canada will NOT become a haven of extremist ideals and a terrified PC government like the UK currently is, and incarceration for non-compliance with religious practices most certainly is extremism.

He can draw all the pictures he wants. What i am saying is, the fact that he took this to the streets and deliberately placing those pictures next to pork is calling for trouble. He deserved those 9 months.

calling for trouble =/ being jailed. i used to wear a shirt that said "**** cops" around. That is calling for trouble, but i never got arrested for it.

this guy is a piece of shit but his detention does not seem lawful to me.

You guys seem to be missing the point here. As i mentioned earlier, draw all the pics you want but once you take it to the next step then that's unacceptable.
What you do privately is your own business, but calling upon the entire city to do this is just idiotic. He clearly knew pork is not permissible in Islam, so why go there? This guy is clearly sick and needs help.

How is this extremist? Go utter words of hate about the queen downtown and see how well that goes. Come on man, it's common sense and you clearly lack that.

We need to live in harmony with each other, and respect other religions and their beliefs. And about your drawing, you are very ignorant to say the least!

i could say that being muslim, or christian, or any other religion is "ignorant" because it asks you to put faith in scripture instead of reason, science & rational thought.

ignorance is not a crime. being stupid is not a crime. free speech is free speech. we don't get to pick and choose what's free speech and what's not.

I dont like it but i dont think what this person did is illegal. he was probably charged with a "hate crime" but there is no violence or harassment, which makes this complicated.

What he did wasn't right and he was asking for trouble but I think 9 months is a bit much .. he definitely deserved jail time but I can guarantee you that if someone dressed up as Jesus and handed out wafers would not go to jail.

The man clearly did something that is not allowed based on the law that we have as of today and was punished according to the law that we have as of today. Harsh or not is completely irrelevant as it is within the judge's power to chose the sentence based on their experience and judicial guidance (precedence etc).

You guys (those that are debating with Murchie) clearly dont understand what "free speech" is. Free speech is the right to express your opinion without censorship or restraint. Not do as you please...

Free speech is not dressing up as a muslim imam in downtown and asking people on the street to draw the prophet mohammad. Now, I am NOT muslim, but even I would find this offensive because it is equivalent to someone dressing up as a priest and hiring a few 10 year old boys to drop their pants so you can hump their bare asses infront of every church in downtown toronto. THIS IS NOT FREE SPEECH...

If you can't get your facts straight... shut your mouth or else you are just a contributing factor to how stupid we are considered by the rest of the world and how much more "American" we are becoming... Thanks (for nothing to most)
