Everybody draw Mohammed day

Many websites around the worls have picked up on and are promoting the Everybody Draw Mohammed day. my own view is that this seems a little childish (and indeed gets a lot of websites banned in Pakistan).

I came across the Mohammed Image Archive a few weeks ago.  It would seem that strictures against depicting Mohammed must be either rather recent or somewhat sect-dependent (my knowledge of Islam isn’t good enough to offer an opinion on that).   But some of the illustrations of Mohammed and his life and works held at that site are strikingly beautiful (particularly the old Persian illustrations), and many are derived from Islamic civilisations.

What went wrong?
