Am as the same mind as Rima here on both points highlighted below.
#1. Why would god or a prophet need defending? You would think that if you’re a God or a prophet you’ve gone beyond the pettiness of humans, beyond ridicule, beyond the affairs of this world. So why are the so-called champions of Islam so worked up over cartoons? Would it not be better to treat them, perhaps as the Buddha prescribd, as “unslkilled” people. Unskilled in expressing themselves so that it could hurt others. If you adopt this view, anger and its attendant servant forgiveness, is not even in the equation.
#2: What posses the minds of Malaysian religious-wallahs to focus their attention of Yoga? Yoga has been around way, way before Islam and if it corrupt, as they say, it would have corrupted the world by now.But the world moves on and idle minds make nasty work.
