“A copy of a medieval illustration from The Remaining Signs Of Past Centuries by Abu Rayhan Biruni has been censored from a French textbook, Histoire Geographie (written by Eric Chaudron and Remy Knafou).

The book was originally published uncensored in 2005, though Mohammed’s face was pixelised for the fifth edition’s second printing. (Jyllands-Posten published twelve Mohammed caricatures in 2005, inspiring numerous satirical Mohammed cartoons.) ” From here Histoire Geographie
