Protests by Muslims worldwide the Middle East, Asia and Africa have protested against France condemning President Emmanuel Macron’s remarks following a knife attack on a church in the French city of Nice.
Demonstrations have also taken place in countries condemning President Emmanuel Macron’s remarks against Muslims and Islam and protesting the display of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in France.
The church in the city of Nice was attacked in the last few days amid growing Muslim outrage in many countries over the display of the caricature.
Strict security measures are being taken across France after the attack.
French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed not to bow to terrorism and not to abandon France’s values of independence.
Earlier, he had made it clear that he would not stop showing cartoons.
Muslims have condemned his remarks. Protesters have accused him of “spreading Islamophobia.” Protesters have blamed Macron for the chaos and violence in France, saying he was making anti-Islamic and anti-Muslim remarks.
Protests have taken place in various countries and Muslim-majority areas including India, Lebanon and Somalia.
In the midst of the turmoil, the French interior minister warned last Friday that the war against Islamic ideology could lead to more militant attacks on French soil.
