Who is the prohibition addressed to?
Believers, or everyone? In other words, is it a requirement of faith where Muslims are themselves banned from the action, or whether they should also actively seek the picture not to be published by non-Muslims?
I am interested in two cases:
- generic representation (for instance the one that got López Prater fired recently, a 14th-century image that shows a winged and crowned Angel Gabriel pointing at the Prophet Muhammad and delivering to him the first Quranic revelation)
Finally, I assume a country where blasphemy is not a felony (and the legal system is not base on Shariah)
