April 23, 2010 02:26:01 GMT


Comedy Central is not taking a risk of them getting killed by a radical Muslim group so they censored the "South Park" bit which was deemed an insult to the religion's Prophet Muhammad. Two recent episodes of the satirical animation featured the holy figure in bear costume which Revolution Muslim took as an insult. The group quickly responded with a message on their official website.

The post, written by Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee, said, "We have to warn [creators] Matt [Stone] and Trey [Parker] that what they are doing is stupid, and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them." van Gogh is a Dutch film maker who was killed by an Islamic extremist in 2004.
