A Queens-based Islamic group plans a rally today outside
"horrible blasphemous images" of the prophet Muhammad published in European
"To denigrate a religion and a historical figure is an act of blasphemy,
not democratic freedom," said a news release yesterday from the Islamic Circle
of North America, a nonprofit Muslim organization with offices in the Jamaica
section of Queens.
The rally is scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. at First Avenue and 47th Street.
