The story of Jyllands-Posten's Muhammad cartoons started with the book, "The Koran and the life of the prophet Mohammed" by Kåre Bluitgen.[1]

On 17 September 2005, the Danish newspaper Politiken ran an article under the headline "Dyb angst for kritik af islam" ("Deep fear of criticism of Islam").

The article discussed the difficulty encountered by the writer Kåre Bluitgen, who was initially unable to find an illustrator who was prepared to work with Bluitgen on his children's book "Koranen og profeten Muhammeds liv" ("The Qur'an and the prophet Muhammad's life"). Three artists declined Bluitgen's proposal before an artist agreed to assist anonymously. According to Bluitgen:

One artist declined, with reference to the murder in Amsterdam of the film director Theo van Gogh, while another declined, citing the attack on the lecturer at the Carsten Niebuhr Institute in Copenhagen.

In October 2004, a lecturer was assaulted by five assailants who opposed the lecturer's reading of the Qur'an to non-Muslims during a lecture at the Niebuhr institute at the University of Copenhagen.
