As a response to the controversy over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, the Seattle chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is launching a campaign to educate people about Muhammad.
Visitors to CAIR’s Web site (www.cair.com/Muhammad) can choose a free DVD of the PBS documentary “Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet.”
Also available is a free book, “Muhammad” by Yahiya Emerick.
According to CAIR, the yearlong educational campaign is intended to be a positive response to the cartoons, originally published in a Danish newspaper, that have spurred worldwide protests, boycotts, violence and deaths.
Similar efforts are under way in other CAIR chapters across the country. CAIR is a nonprofit advocacy group with headquarters in Washington, D.C.
