It's 'Draw Prophet Mohammed Day' in Toronto


Anti-Islamist Eric Brazau has helped turn May 20 into "the Day for Drawing the Prophet Mohammed" in Toronto. The tradition began shortly after the Danish cartoon firestorm in 2005 – when a Danish newspaper published depictions of Mohammed that led to violent protests worldwide.

The person who initiated the Candian event, Molly Norris, had to go underground because of threats against her life, but Brazau is carrying on the tradition.
