1 Sara Di Diego = "Some people are upset that Muhammad is holding the Quran with his left hand (which is considered unclean).  This is seen as an insult, along with the fact that the Prophet's face is seen.  There have been petitions (in 1997) to at least cover his face, yet no progress has been made.  Chief Justice William Rehnquist said it would be unlawful to injure or take away anything from the Supreme Court building.Work Cited:http://religiousreader.org/a-sculpture-of-muhammad-has-sat-in-the-u-s-supreme-court-since-the-1930s/http://www.weaselzippers.us/211046-fun-fact-theres-a-sculpture-of-mohammed-inside-u-s-supreme-court-that-cair-once-demanded-face-be-sandblasted/"
