Theological question

To my learned Muslim readers (of which I'm sure there must be many):

Apparently one is forbidden to have an image of Mohammed (pbuh). So if I have one, should I burn it to show my revulsion at this desecration of the prophet's image?

Maybe we should organize large group burnings of effigies of Mohammed to show our respect for the Islamic tradition.

All those in favour?
