As a conversion oriented religion Islam is highly critical of all other beliefs, and trying to supplant; ant them, sometimes by force. Nor is Islam the only religion in the world, and there are no other religious points of view to consider. Islam is only one religion among many, and it is neither the oldest nor the newest. If Muslims are going to expect books which offend Islam to be banned, they should allow books that offend other religious or even non-religious groups also to be banned, even if they are written by Muslims or by Mohammed himself. Such a process however would be unending and only promote illiteracy. 

We all have our sentiments, nor just those of us who are Muslims. We all think that our religion or philosophy is the best or we wouldn't be following it. No one likes his or her chosen religion, philosophy or political ideology to be criticized and yet all have been criticized by somebody and sometimes unfairly or inaccurately. Some of us are trained not to be self-sensitive and to recognize that other people see the world differently than we do and that we need not try to impose our views upon them in order for us to feel secure.
