Following the attack on the weekly magazine "Charlie Hebdo" in France, Fuji TV interviewed various Muslims, during which they passed around a caricature of the prophet Muhammad and asked them what they felt. This was seen as a problem online, causing a flood of criticism towards the network.

During an episode of "Mezamashi Terebi," three Muslim men who reside in Japan were shown the caricature. They were asked their opinions of the caricature. One of the men said "I don't quite understand.." while another said "Muhammad is a very amazing person. To do this kind of thing is definitely not allowed. Seriously..."

On the internet comments such as "This is such an ugly action that I want to throw up," "This is limitless cowardice," and "My eyes betrayed me."

Fuji TV insists that they simply wanted to see the men's opinions of the image following the attacks in Paris by Muslim extremists against Charlie Hebdo.

This kind of segment is just making fun of Islam.
After this, if anything happens to this station I won't think anything of it.

They can't possibly be thinking that the spear won't be pointed back at them

If by chance terrorism happens in Japan, it's Fuji TV's responsibility

It's obvious that they're just trying to draw in terrorism to Japan...

This is the television station that made a cardboard cut out of Mao-chan's falling scene and showed it to her
