This is not satire
An Islamic court in India has issued a fatwa condemning to death 12 artists who drew controversial images of the prophet Mohammed.
The religious decree was issued by the court's religious head in Lucknow, capital of Uttar Pradesh state in the north.
"Death is the only penalty for the cartoonists who had drawn sacrilegious cartoons of the prophet," religious head Maulana Mufti Abul Irfan said yesterday.
