Pakistan’s cabinet condemned French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday for the “sad” remarks tantamount to hurting the feelings of Muslims around the world.
During a meeting in Islamabad with Prime Minister Imran Khan, the cabinet took note of the French government’s projections of caricatures of blasphemy in government buildings last week as part of a tribute to history teacher Samuel Paty, who was beheaded on the outskirts of Paris earlier this month after showing caricatures in a school classroom. basis on free speech, said a statement from the prime minister’s office.
The Cabinet “made it clear” that the blasphemy of the Prophet Muhammad was “completely unacceptable to every Muslim in the world.”
The meeting decided that the government would use “every possible” platform, including the Organization of Islamic State, to highlight the feelings of Muslims towards the ongoing campaign.
In recent weeks, Macron accused Muslims of “separatism” and described Islam as “a religion that is experiencing a worldwide crisis”.
The attack coincided with a provocative move by Charlie Hebdo, a left-wing French satirical magazine notorious for publishing anti-Islamic caricatures, which have drawn widespread anger and outrage across the Muslim world.
Earlier this year, the magazine republished cartoons insulting Islam and the Prophet Muhammad.
The caricature, first published in 2006 by the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, sparked a wave of protests.
