Riot Police guard French magazine Charlie Hebdo
ofce after it published cartoons of the Prophet
France said it would temporarily close itsembassies and schools in 20 countries onFriday after a French magazine publishedcartoons of the Prophet Mohammad
(SM), a move it fears will further inametensions over a lm mocking the prophet.
“We have indeed decided as a precautionary measure to close our premises, embassies,consulates, cultural centres and schools,”a Foreign Ministry spokesman said of theshut-down on Friday, prayer day acrossthe Muslim world.Before publishing the cartoons on Wednesday, French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, renowned for its irreverenttreatment of the political establishment
and public gures, argued that it had the
right to uphold that tradition.“We do caricatures of everyone, and aboveall every week, and when we do it withthe Prophet, it’s called provocation,” thepaper’s editor, Stephane Charbonnier,told the news channel i>TELE.Issues of the magazine hit newsstands with the front cover and inside pagesdepicting the cartoons, a move criticised by the French authorities, which sent riot
police to protect the magazine’s ofces.
The publication came amid widespread
outrage over a short lm, made with
private funds in the United States, thatmocks the Prophet and has ignited daysof sometimes deadly protests in the Arab world, Africa, Asia and some Westerncountries.Muslim leaders in France, which hasEurope’s largest Muslim population, haveappealed for calm.
Charlie Hebdo’s Paris ofces were re
bombed last November after it publisheda mocking caricature of Muhammad[pbuh]. In 2005, Danish cartoons of theProphet sparked a wave of violent protestsacross the Muslim world that killed atleast 50 people.Most Muslims consider any representationof Allah or the Prophet Muhammad[pbuh] offensive.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabiuscriticised the move as a provocation andsaid he had ordered security beefed up at
French diplomatic ofces in the Muslim
world.“Is it relevant and intelligent in this
environment to add fuel to the re? The
answer is no,” Fabius told France Inforadio. “I’m very worried... and when I saw this I immediately issued instructions forspecial security precautions to be takenin all the countries where it could be aproblem.”The government has called for restraintover the cartoons, restating the principlesof free speech in France and urging thoseshocked by the images to take actionthrough the courts.
As outrage over the anti-Muslim lm
continues to fuel violence and protestsacross the Islamic world, French PrimeMinister Jean-Marc Ayrault said theauthorities had rejected a request to hold
a march against the lm in Paris.“There is no reason for us to allow conicts
that do not concern France to enter ourcountry,” Ayrault told RTL radio.Social media had circulated calls for a
protest on Saturday against the lm,
after police arrested about 150 people who tried to take part in an unauthorisedprotest near the US Embassy in Paris last week.The main body representing Muslimsin France, the French Muslim Council
(CFCM), accused Charlie Hebdo of ring
up anti-Muslim sentiment at a sensitivetime.“The CFCM is deeply attached to freedomof speech but considers that nothing can justify insult and inciting hatred,” it saidin a statement.“The CFCM calls on the Muslims of Francenot to give in to such provocation andurges them to express their indignationcalmly and in lawful manner.”Former Charlie Hebdo editor Philippe Val was pursued in French courts on chargesof racial injury, and ultimately acquitted,after the paper reprinted the Danishcartoons of Mohammad.
