Malmo: (Sweden): Religious heads in southern Sweden have advised their followers to ignore an upcoming exhibition of work by controversial Swedish artist Lars Vilks, warning that people should not be provoked by his artwork. According to Vilks, the goal of the exhibition is to play down criticism of Islam. The Swedish artist has faced numerous death threats since the time his sketches of the Prophet were made public. Malmo mayor, Ilmar Reepalu slammed the exhibition last fortnight, claiming the show was only being put on for “political ends” and that he hoped “no one will visit the gallery”.
“Ignore Vilks’ Exhibition”, say Religious Heads
