[b]Colombo, 10 February, ([/b] The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) a network of over 50 of the largest and most influential National organizations of Muslims in Sri Lanka joined over 1.5 Billion Muslims the world over to condemn the publication of the blasphemous cartoons depicting our Prophet Muhammed, which initially was published in a Danish newspaper 'Jyllands Posten'.<

The MCSL believes that freedom of thought, expression and action is God's gift to be excised with responsibility for the greater benefit and good of humanity without any consideration of nationality, gender, color or religion and not sow the seed of tension and cause distress, harm or pain to a section.

"We are certain that the editors publishing the blasphemous caricatures depicting our Prophet Muhammed would not have commissioned drawings maligning any other Religious leader, nor would they have smear their pages with anti-Sematic graffiti," the Council's Interim President N.M. Ameen stated in a letter addressed to Denmark Prime Minister, which was to be delivered through Harry Jayawardena, Consular General for Denmark in Sri Lanka.
