Today is Blasphemy Day. Everyone is encouraged to declare any criticism of religion honestly and openly.
Blasphemy Day is an international holiday that was founded in 2009 by the Center for Inquiry. It is celebrated on September 30, the anniversary of a publication that had drawings of Muhammad in a newspaper in Denmark. This resulted in a large controversy that caused people around the world to not depict Muhammad at all in fear of retribution from the extremist Muslim community. The caricatures of the prophet caused controversy in Denmark but soon became a global furor after Muslim imams throughout the world baited violent protests in which at least 137 people were killed. Additionally, embassies were burned and other acts of recrimination carried out because of the supposed blasphemy.
People refuse to be shamed into not speaking their minds so Blasphemy Day became a celebrated day around the world. Many observe the day by changing their Facebook and Twitter avatars to pictures of Muhammad or other heretic images. Drawing and displaying pictures of Mohammad in any outlet is a popular way to celebrate Blasphemy Day.
This is not just a holiday about Islam but all religions; however, it was that incident where a Danish cartoonist depicted Muhammad that began the annual holiday.
The purpose of Blasphemy Day is not to offend but to exhibit free speech.
