The Face of the Prophet

An English political candidate faces death threats and criticism because he tweeted a cartoon image of Jesus and Mohammed. Muslims forbid people from making images of the Prophet or Allah. They do not believe that either should be idolized. 

According to 4News in London, Maajid Nawaz, a parliamentary candidate in Hampstead and Kilburn in England, said that "he did not feel threatened by the image."

This is an interesting story that religion students might discuss. Thanks to Emma Le Neve Foster for tweeting the link.
