Muslim scholars meeting in Birmingham have called for a change in the law to stop insulting pictures of the Prophet Mohammed being published.
Officials from the Muslim Action Committee (MAC) also called for the Press Complaints Commission code to be tightened to restrict British newspapers from following European media in printing the caricatures.
A protest march from Trafalgar Square to Hyde Park on February 18 involving around 50,000 Muslims would be staged, Shaikh Faiz Saddiqi, spokesman for the MAC, said.
Speaking at a press conference held at a mosque in Small Heath yesterday, Mr Saddiqi said discussions among hundreds of Muslim Scholars from around the UK resulted in agreement of a number of changes.
They included the modifying of the Race Relations Act to give Muslims the same rights as Jews and Sikhs along with the tightening of the Press Complaints Commission Code of Conduct. He said the code should include rules stopping the publication of the Prophet of Mohammed.
"Insulting the Prophet of Islam is worse than insulting your wife, children or sister.
"It happens once, it happens twice but a third time you are going to take action. Enough is enough, we have to get back to being a civil society."
He said there had not been such an insult to Islam since Salman Rushdie published his book, the Satanic Verses.
"There has been reports of very deep offence because of the cartoons, and also deep anger and frustration that once again we have not learned the lesson from the last time the Prophet Mohammed was insulted."
He later praised the British press for not following their European counterparts and printing the caricatures.
Meanwhile US President George Bush called for an end to violence triggered by drawings of the Prophet Mohammed.
"We reject violence as a way to express discontent with what may be printed in a free press," he said.
"I call upon the governments around the world to stop the violence, to be respectful, to protect property, protect the lives of innocent diplomats who are serving their countries overseas."
French President Jacques Chirac asked media to avoid offending religious beliefs as a French newspaper reprinted the caricatures of the prophet Mohammed yesterday.
Chirac said during a Cabinet meeting that he condemned "all obvious provocations likely to dangerously kindle passions".
The satirical French weekly paper Charlie-Hebdo reprinted the Mohammed drawings, as well as a new caricature of its own that took up its entire front page.
Under the headline "Mohammed Overwhelmed by the Fundamentalists," the cover depicted the prophet with his head in his hands, remarking, "It's hard to be loved by idiots."
