Showing disapproval regarding cartoons of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)

Q: I am really confused on a point. People in our society react differently to the issue of cartoons of Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). Some do strikes (which many a times become violent), others show no practical response, although they feel hurt. Please respond/guide me in light of sunnah with reference to seerah what is the methodology or reaction one should adopt against blasphemous acts. 

A: To show disapproval is a requisite of imaan.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
