Painting of Muslim-Seeming Woman Craddling Pig Ignites Violence & Protest


British artist Sarah Maple is known for her controversial images (like the one above) but now one of her works is (literally) under attack:

Maple’s painting of a Muslim woman cradling a pig was immediately criticized by the Muslim Association of Britain, and while they stressed their opposition to violence, others seemed to take a different approach.

The gallery has been subject to a string of threatening emails and phone calls from anonymous protesters, and on Tuesday, someone smashed the glass front of the gallery. (source)

    People often take their religious beliefs way too seriously.

    Hey im a proud muslim, but i think people of every religion seem to go too far in their defense of it, to the point where it becomes meaningless.
    I dont see what the big deal is, even if the artist meant to be offensive, why get offended?
