"Don't expect that we will make fun of Islam any more", A Western British actor Michael Palin says | PakistanTribeLONDON – First good news of 2014 is that finally  some western celebrities have realized that Muslims are very very sensitive about their religion and religious personalities.

So they have started saying that they should not make fun of Islam any more. The first sign of this change appeared last night when a member of a famous British media group said that he has decided to stay away from making any jokes about Islam.

This media group named, Monty Python, is famous for making fun of religious subjects but now one of its key member Michael Palin, British actor and TV presenter says ”  Religion these days in general is a far more touchy subject than it was 30 years ago and nobody is willing to listen to jokes about religion.

Michael Palin says now he prefers to stay far far away from these subjects.‘We all saw what happened to Salman Rushdie and none of us want to get into all that” Michael Palin said.

It needs to be mentioned here that earlier on this media group had vowed to keep on cracking jokes about religion and they even produced a very famous show named” Life of Brian” which was about making fun of religion but now finally their opinion is changing.
