New Zealand museum insults one of Islam’s most revered prophets

New Zealand’s Canterbury Museum has set off a storm of controversy by displaying a T-shirt insulting a key figure in Islam and Christianity.

The T-shirt depicts a nun masturbating, with the words “Jesus is a c**t”.

Jesus, known as Isa ibn Maryam in the Qur’an, is the second most revered prophet to Muslims, and is mentioned more often in the Qur’an than Muhammed.

The decision to display the T-shirt “art” has been blasted by a New Zealand family values lobby group, Family First, which has organised an online petition against the deliberate attempt to mock a figure central to the faith of some three billion people.
