'My book honours the prophet Mohammed,' says author whose novel provoked fire-bomb attack
The author should of realised the response its best not to write about fictional things about Mohammed let alone the truth that gives the prophet bad character. The fact that he did not go by his own law and advice on how many wifes a man could have can be a touchy thing to mention to the faithful.
The author of a novel about the prophet Mohammed that provoked a fire-bomb attack on the publisher's home today insisted that Muslims should read the book.
Sherry Jones dismissed claims that The Jewel of Medina was 'soft core pornography' and insisted that it is respectful towards Islam.
She said the attack on the £2.5million London home of its UK publisher, Martin Rynja, at the weekend was 'a reprehensible act of violence by criminals'.
Muslim extremists have also warned the publisher that he faces death for going ahead with the novel about the prophet's child bride, which includes a description of the night they consummate their marriage.
