Censorship can greatly affect a person, state, country, or an entire culture at times. This was noticeable in a recent event that took place overseas. There were riots that broke out in the Middle East over a Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten that published twelve cartoons that depicted Muhammad in a negative light, the most famous one showing Muhammad’s turban in the shape of a bomb. This suggested that all people that follow Muhammad are violent people. This goes to show how meaningful censorship is, and this is a major case of what should and should not be censored. This incident is more a case of how newspapers should self-censor. However, the person who published these cartoons spoke out about why he chose to publicize them and his reasoning behind it. “… I commissioned the cartoons in response to several incidents of self-censorship in Europe caused by widening fears and feelings of intimidation in dealing with issues related to Islam. And I still believe that this is a topic that we Europeans must confront, challenging moderate Muslims to speak out.”
