Journalists are suppose to be neutral on maters of religion, but when journalists refer to the founder of Islam as “The” prophet Mohammed, they maybe unknowing validating the beliefs of many Islamic extremists. What must of Islamicist think when an infidel newspaper or journalist refers to his prophet as “the” prophet?
Of the world estimated 6 billion inhabitants, and estimated 1.5 billion or 25 percent of the worlds’ population are Muslims. For 75 percent of the world population, Mohammed is not their prophet. No legitimate journalist would refer to Jesus Christ as “the son of God”, or the founder of Mormonism as “The Prophet” Joseph Smith.
Mohammed should be referring to as “The Muslim Prophet”, “The Islamic Prophet” or the founder of Islam. Such terminology should not be insulting to either Muslim or to the major of the world’s population that do not believe Mohammed to be God’s ultimate prophet. This is not a mater of political correctness, just objectivity and neutrality on issues of religion.
