One of the world's most prominent Sunni religious scholars called on Muslims to boycott Danish products in response to the decision by several newspapers in Denmark to reprint a controversial cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad.

The cartoon, showing Prophet Muhammad wearing a turban shaped as a bomb with a burning fuse, was one of 12 caricatures that sparked protests across the Islamic world when they were first published in 2006 and led many Muslims to avoid Danish goods.
