Asharq Alaswat: "Islamic Conference to Address Cartoon Controversy"

Islam seems to be entering the Cartoon Era:
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, chairman of the Qatar University Sunni Research Center and head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, has announced that a comprehensive Islamic conference will convene in Bahrain on Tuesday 14 March 2006 to discuss the consequences of the Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet, (PBUH) and the effective methods to prevent a repetition of the slander of prophets , Divine religions, so that the world would live in love and peace.

In a telephone interview with him by Asharq al-Awsat, Sheikh Al-Qaradawi said: "Many of the Islamic organizations and societies will participate in this conference, including the International Union of Muslim Scholars, the International Campaign to Support Islam, the Permanent Committee to Defend the Seal of the Prophets, and the Pakistani Jama'at-e-Islami, in addition to Muslim intellectuals and scholars from allover the world. This conference aims at showing the Islamic anger, but in a rational and balanced form to deter from attacking the sacred religious issues and the idolatry beliefs, and to prevent slander of God's messengers and prophets."
The author is identified as "Imam Mohamed Imam."
