Cartoons of Muhammad from 100 years ago

What an interesting article!

It tells the story of a satirical magazine published in Tbilisi a century ago, using satirical cartoons to promote women’s equality, individual rights and secularism…


How Muslim Azerbaijan had satire years before Charlie Hebdo

An Azeri woman points to a building with windows, which is a prison, while on their right is a house of Muslim women with none. Picture: Courtesy of the Azerbaijan National Library. In this cartoon, the magazine depicts a prison with windows and a house of Muslim women with none
This cartoon from 1909 had a pretty short explanation: “Pilgrimage to Hajj”. This 1909 cartoon, Pilgrimage to Hajj, had a pretty clear message
He also depicted Muhammad.
Very interesting read indeed…
