South Park Depicts Prophet Muhammad(saw) in Cartoon!

Fans of the popular series South Park are waiting for tonight’s episode after it was revealed the episode will include a portrayal of the character of the Muslim prophet, Muhammad.

The controversy started in 2005 when a Danish newspaper ran a series of comics where an image of Muhammad was shown. It raised protests in the middle east where Muslims burned Danish embassies in Syria, Lebanon, and Iran.

This is not the first time the creator of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, produced episodes including Muhammad in the character. In July 4, 2001 an episode entitled Super Best Friends successfully aired with the prophet depicted.

People are waiting if tonight’s episode will be really aired or canceled.

The episode aired April 15, 2010 and depicted Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit and speaking funny. Anderson Cooper aired his story tonight on CNN. On the ac360 website the blog about this is entitled, Evening Buzz: Radical Islamic Website Warns 'South Park' Creators. The Revolution Muslim website posted this on their website.

“We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”
