Hamed Saeedi: In my Islamic upbringing I was taught that the pen is man's strongest weapon. These extremists must know that they can never silence freedom of speech, for it is a stronger weapon than any they'd dare to carry. Why couldn't they answer peacefully through the pen as our prophet likely would have? True Islam condemns such attacks, more so when they are ignorantly and violently carried out in its name. Long live freedom of expression, religious tolerance and peaceful coexistence.

Mehboob Mirza: It is a sad & tragic day. RIP. What is more insulting to the Prophet (peace be upon him) than satirical cartoons are those who murder innocent people in his name.
