After Charlie Hebdo and Pamela Geller, Prophet Muhammad drawing is amusingly dealt with below by Saturday Night Live. In a picture drawing game, what could a blank canvas be inferred to be–but the Prophet Muhammad himself?
So was the Prophet Muhammad represented by the white square of butcher paper–or not? It strikes me as a way to imply that a person has been represented–even as you take that representation back at the same time (much like a politician who resorts to plausible deniability after making an inflammatory statement without explicitly making it).
So again: does the white sheet constitute the “drawing”–the framing–of the Prophet Muhammad, or not? And if not, why did the contestant get the right answer?
there is only one person that the public knows people are afraid to draw. If it goes on much longer, blank paper will be an offence against Islam if we keep saying that it’s the prophet.
