Taiwanese ranconteur and man of letters Jacky Wu is in a bit of an imbroglio for besmirching the good name of Muhammad.
On the 《齊天大勝》variety/quiz show, the subject of Muslims being forbidden to eat pork came up. Wu joked that he had heard that Muhammad had been reared on pork milk, without which he wouldn’t have survived. For this reason it’s forbidden for Muslims to eat pork.
Not too surprisingly, reaction to Wu’s comments were strongly worded. “If this had happened in an Islamic country, Jacky’s head would already be off! Taishi TV station would have been bombed long ago!” Another helpfully added, “Who dares mock our saviour! Muslims cannot tolerate the humiliation of our prophet like this!”
Jacky better hope that they don’t get the Apple Daily in Afghanistan.
Who’s in the mood for a fatwa?
