RIP Kurt Westergaard (1935 – 2021)

Kurt Westergaard was a Danish cartoonist famous for drawing the cartoons of Mohamed that were the object of the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy in 2005.

These cartoons made him the target of multiple death threats and assassination attempts. As a result, Westergaard lived, for the rest of his life, under police protection and in hiding.
