Among all the world's 6 billion people, there are an uncountable number of beliefs and traditions - and, naturally, some are going to be in direct conflict with others. Offence WILL be caused at some point, when someone talks who advocates a certain belief, which goes directly against that of another person. There's no way to avoid this.

My personal belief is that it is wrong to pander to one group of people in particular. To censor images of Muhammad for fear of "offending" hard-core Muslims can be seen as offensive to those advocates of free speech. As long as no-one is directly, physically harming someone else, then it is not wrong to let people speak.
