"There is no Quranic injunction against images, whether of Muhammad or anyone else… The issue has never been decided one way or another, and the claim that a ban on images is "an absolute principle of Islam" is purely political. The truth is that Islam has always had a sense of humor and has never called for chopping heads as the answer to satirists.”
Illustration from a contemporary English version of "Mouse and Cat" by Ubaid Zakani (died circa 1372 A.D.), "one of the most remarkable poets, satirists and social critics of Iran"
