As we have always stated, freedom of speech is very much a part of Islam, however, with freedom comes responsibility. The alleged ‘men of God’ who are responsible for this despicable film knew quite well and intended to cause such terrible reactions. They are also behaving in contradiction to the tenants of their faith, and they share in the responsibility for these criminal acts. We call for an increase in honest and civil dialogue among people of all faiths and traditions to improve relationships with one another.
