Wikipedia Islam Entry Is Criticized
by Noam Cohen
An article about the Prophet Muhammad in the English-language Wikipedia has become the subject of an online protest in the last few weeks because of its representations of Muhammad, taken from medieval manuscripts.
In addition to numerous e-mail messages sent to Wikipedia.org, an online petition cites a prohibition in Islam on images of people.
The petition has more than 80,000 "signatures," though many who submitted them to ThePetitionSite.com, remained anonymous.
