Sister Helen
You have a way with words and rational thinking like no other.

I hope to meet more of your caliber during my lifetime.

PUNs are plays with words and nothing else.

Sister Helens post gives the keyword here: Intent

It is when the intention is bad that the pun becomes bad.

Our dearest Prof. M. Rafi brings smiles and laughters to these boards that help settle the mood and seriousness that sometimes can be overwhelming.

Everyone here knows and should know of our dear professors intents... I highly doubt the post was meant as an insult to the prophets or anyone else..

I think it's sad to see that such a small and insignificant post could cause such distress?

Is this any different than the way muslims behaved when the drawings of our prophet Muhammed(S) was published worldwide?

Why are we lighting such a fire over a post which sole intention was humor and play on the english language and certainly not belittlement of any kind?
