The terrorist attack in France and the subsequent debate over Islam is not taking the name of stopping. There has already been controversy over the making of cartoons of Pangbar Mohammed, due to which there is a verbal war between France and Turkey. Now in this war, former Prime Minister of Malaysia Mahatir Mohammad has given such a statement, which is being condemned all over the world.
Mahathir Mohammed on Thursday tweeted dozens of tweets on his Twitter account, condemning France and accusing it of being hostile towards Muslims. In one of these tweets, Mahathir Mohammed said, “Muslims have every right to anger and kill millions of French people.”
Mahathir said in some of his other tweets that so far thousands of people have been killed in France, many of whom were Muslims. France must convince its people and protect the freedom of expression. However, Mahathir Mohammad also wrote that Muslims have not adopted the law of the eye instead of the eye in France, so the French people should not do so.
These tweets of Mahathir Mohammad caused much controversy and it was condemned worldwide. Later, Twitter deleted Mahatir Mohammad’s tweet in which he is talking about killing French people.
Let us tell you that in the midst of a debate in France about the cartoon of Pangbar Mohammad, another attack took place in the city of Nice on Thursday. Where the attacker attacked the discussion by raising slogans of Allah Hu Akbar, the throat of a woman who was killed by three people was cut.
Many big leaders of the world including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Pope Francis, Angela Merkel, Donald Trump have condemned the terrorist attack in France. Also, the remarks made by Turkish President Recep Tayyab Erdogan on French President Emmanuel Macron in the past have also been termed as derogatory by many countries.
French magazine Charlie Hebdo has recently released another cartoon, in which Turkish President Recep Tayyab Erdogan has been taunted. Turkey is furious on this cartoon and has also got support from other Muslim countries. But France is also not in a mood to back down and along with France other European countries are also supporting it.
