Mikhaela Reid responds to Muhammad cartoon controversy

The New Standard has interviewed Mikhaela Reid on her take of the Mohammad cartoon controversy.

Do Muslims have a right to be offended? Of course they do. You can’t draw something with the intention of offending and then be totally shocked when someone gets offended. There is nothing wrong with peaceful protests or boycotts, and most of the Muslims who are upset are protesting peacefully. But violence, calling for beheading cartoonists, burning down embassies, that’s something else altogether. And this idea that the government should regulate the speech of journalists, that’s scary.
