Emmanuel Macron Controversy
Protests against Emmanuel Macron erupted after he gave a speech before the beheading of teacher Samuel Paty, who was attacked close to his school earlier this month after showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to his students. Eighteen-year-old Islamist Abdullah was shot dead by police after the attack.
Speaking a day before the attack, Macron said: “Islam is a religion which is experiencing a crisis today, all over the world.”
He added that “There was a need to free Islam in France from foreign influences”.
Macron has since become the subject of personal attacks across the world. On Wednesday India strongly condemned the personal attacks against Macron, calling it “a violation of the most basic standards of international discourse”.
Citizens in multiple Muslim countries have called on the world to boycott French products, which has been trending on social media across Qatar, Egypt, Kuwait, Pakistan, Jordan, Algeria, Saudi Arabia and Turkey with tens of thousands of people taking to the streets.
Posters of Macron were pasted on the surface of Mumbai’s Muhammad Ali Road on Thursday. Videos of vehicles driving over the posters and people walking over them have been shared online.
