Two gunmen opened fire in Garland, Texas, Sunday, outside an event hosted by the American Freedom Defense Initiative.

Cartoons of Mohammed were displayed. As a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, I condemn the attacks wholeheartedly. The prophet in his lifetime repeatedly tolerated such abuse.

However, the actions that provoked this atrocity also need to be carefully examined. How does awarding $10,000 to the person who can best malign a religious leader benefit society?
